Happy Trails: "The Amazing Spider-Man" (2012)

This trailer does whatever a spider can.

Forgive my crappy pun, but man, this one looks great.  Darker and more serious than the Tobey Maguire/Sam Raimi pictures from the last decade, but still fun and exciting.  I've been a little wary about rebooting this franchise already, but this trailer nearly wipes out those fears.  It's interesting that this film seems to explore Peter's parents, a concept usually ignored in both the comics and in adaptations to other media. And so far, it's looking like Andrew Garfield is going to be a great Peter Parker, and I'm always up for having Emma Stone around.
