Columbia Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a roller-coaster of suspense, in theaters May 2, 2014
*The Marvel super-hero Spider-Man created by Stan Lee has a new face with the Columbia Picture release of The Amazing Spiderman 2, starring Golden Globe nominated Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, The Amazing Spider-Man) back again as Spider-Man aka Peter Parker; Golden Globe nominated Emma Stone (The Help, The Croods) as Gwen Stacy his love interest, and Academy and Golden Globe winner Jamie Foxx (DJango Unchained, Ray) as Electro. The Amazing Spiderman 2 arrives in theaters May 2, 2014 in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
The continuation of the classic tale offers the audience a roller-coaster of suspense as Spider-Man tried to balance his call to be a super-hero, his issues of abandoned by his parent, and to protect his love interest from those out to kill Spider-Man, like fan Max Dillon turned enemy Electro (Foxx), and his high school friend Harry Osborn turned enemy Green Goblin played by Dane DeHaan (“True Blood”).
The film makes you feel as though you are riding on the back of Spider-Man as he leaps and flies from building to building via his spider-webs. Garfield makes a very fly Spider-Man, and I am sure he is appealing to the new audience of the classic tale. Jamie took both characters, the clumsy electrical engineer at Oscorp Incorp. and the out-for-revenge electrically charged fame seeking villain. DeHaan also took some spotlight with his portrayal of the Green Goblin.
Legendary Sally Fields gave an excellent performance as Peter Parkers’ Aunt May who raised him since a boy. The action film also stars Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Marton Csorkas, Louis Cacelmi, and Max Charles.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb, produced by AVI Arad and Matt Tolmach, and is a Marvel Entertainment/Columbia Pictures production. The outstanding soundtrack is scored by Hans Zimmer and The Magnificent Six.
