The Amazing Spider-Man 2 “Final” Trailer
I have actually lost track of how many trailers Sony have released for this film. The marketing strategy for this film is “Build Buzz!!! As long as we have Buzz who cares about story?!?!”.
Yea, it’s a good trailer, but did they really need to release “Sneak Preview Trailer” numbers 1, 2 and 3? Then release “Preview Trailer” number 1 and 2? Just to build up to a final trailer where they have all the content from previous trailers in addition to some actual quality material that show’s off the villains?! Yes, it has created a steady build up of buzz, but personally I’m at the point where I’ve seen these trailers so many times that when I see these moments in the film I will roll my eyes and get annoyed all over again.
That’s it for marketing analytics, onto the actual trailer! We see a lot more of the relationship between Harry and Peter and ultimately some more shots of Harry as the Green Goblin – no Norman though? And the finest shot in my opinion is the Rhino at the end! A nice taste of what to expect. Instead of a man in a suit – it’s basically a tank. A nice idea but it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out. There’s also Electro, looking all boring as he has the whole way through this marketing scam. But hey we have Paul Giamatti shooting a gun with little to no dialogue! (Giamatti’s finest ability in my opinion is his delivery of dialogue).
This film is really not something I’m looking forward to. It looks like a lot of bloated, uninteresting Spider-Man stuff with some potentially amazing action sequences. But of course I’ll go see it (did you not see the Marvel logo at the start?!). Will I enjoy it as much as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: The Dark World, X-Men Days of Future Past or Ant-Man? No. No I will not. But I’ll grit my teeth and smile at the fact that Spider-Man is on the screen in front of me slinging webs at all.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is released on April 18th in the UK.
