It’s New Year’s Eve which means Times Square in New York is hopping and buzzing with activity unlike any other day or night of the year. One of the festivities planned was the debut of new footage and a new trailer for the Sony film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and for fans who waited, the footage was everything we could have hoped for.
Really, the night is dominated by the New Year’s Eve festivities and the new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is getting lumped in with all the other events on the night. But Spider-Man fans got a better look at one of the most anticipated movies of 2014 and the wait it going to be agonizing until the May release date of the the film.
Here’s a look at the New Year’s Eve trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
If you need a refresher, here’s a quick synopsis of the film from Sony:
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 4, 2014.
