James Franco's Review Of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN? 'Meh'

What does Sam Raimi's Harry Osborn think about Marc Webb's reboot of the Spider-Man franchise? Not much. Continue on to listen to why Franco wasn't gung-ho about the film.





Said Franco, "Meh, they could've strayed a little bit more from the original. It's like...why. Guess they made a lot of money. Okay, congrats. But good for them. Sam and I moved on, we made Oz."

I believe Franco has just echoed a lot of Spider-Man fan sentiments. The sequel should fare much better, reception-wise, as there's less opportunity to tread in Raimi's footsteps now that Webb's story has moved beyond the origin.


Dane DeHaan better hope the Amazing Spider-Man sequel deviates more from Sam Raimi's trilogy or this is his future.





Running Time: 2 hrs 16 min
Release Date: July 3, 2012 (USA)
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Starring: Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans, Emma Stone, Sally Field and Martin Sheen.
Directed by: Marc Webb

The Amazing Spider-Man is an American superhero film directed by Marc Webb, based on the comic book of the same name and starring Andrew Garfield as the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man. It is the fourth Columbia Pictures film that portrays Spider-Man in film and is a reboot of the film series that stars the superhero. The cast includes Garfield as Peter Parker and his alter ego, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. The film will portray Parker as his super powers are evolving in high school.

The film's development began simultaneously with Sony announcing the cancellation of Spider-Man 4. Opting for a reboot with the same production team rather than another sequel, the studio announced a July 2012 release date for what was now titled The Amazing Spider-Man. James Vanderbilt was hired to write the script while Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves helped fine-tune the script. Filming started in December 2010 in Los Angeles before moving to New York City with the help of RED Epic camera. The film entered post-production in April 2011.

Sony Entertainment has focused its marketing campaign with a promotional website with released images, 2 theatrical trailers, a prologue screening in certain cities and a video game tie-in being developed by Beenox among other products. The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled to be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on July 3, 2012. A sequel of the film is being planned for release in 2014 with James Vanderbilt hired to again write the screenplay.
