Now that The Avengers has brought in more than $207 mil at the box office, does that mean there's no room for The Amazing Spider-Man or The Dark Knight Rises? It sounds like an awful lot of superhero movie for a single summer.
I have no doubts that Spider-man is going to make a punt load of money but I'm pretty sure it won't get to anything near the same level the Avengers or even TDKR does in total box office.
I think, based off the trailers, it will be the sleeper hit. If anything TDK should be afraid of it to be honest. I mean look at it. People are pretending to be all mad that its a reboot and "oh i don't want to see it, looks lame" then the newest trailer hits and people are talking about it again. I think IF the film can pull of the same thing, aka is amazing, then it will explode. People will be going back. I think The Avengers had the hype going in, Spider-Man has the hype afterwards.
I think you're right. It still won't make as much but people are curious and want to see what they've done with the new spiderman.
Actually im not pretending that im mad about it being a reboot... im not pretending i wont see it. Really. I wont see it. It looks stupid to me. The actor in of himself looks retarded. The best thing that movie has going for it is the fact that dennis leary is a cop. Otherwise who cares.
I didn't want to see it because of the new Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Whatever his name is. I just don't get the Parker feel from him as I did with Tobey. I still don't want to see it because of him but I will because the plot seems good enough to make it worth it. But I definitely won't be seeing it in IMAX nor 3D like I did The Avengers.
I think he'll make a much better spiderman; I'm sorry but Toby's acting was for large sections of the films: awful; there were an unbelievable number of cheesey moments in the films and they ruined venom partly by not giving him anyway near enough screen time; don't get me wrong the films were enjoyable enough but I think for the way marvel have been doing their franchises lately in terms of films and the sort of atmosphere they want from them Andrew Garfield will be a much better Spiderman mainly due to his acting appearing to be alot better.... he doesn't look like the stereotypical nerdy/geeky person but then again people usually don't.. :S
i loved the Spidy trailer, didnt think the can make something better than the Rami films. before he was a hero he was a selfish A'hol, this movie is about the character transformation
I hope it turns out to be a good movie.. Imo though its going to be hard for this and batman to top a movie with more than one super hero. I think its time to start making teams like the avengers movi.. A batman and superman movie would be crazy, spider man with xmen etc..
If anything, TASM crushed its own hopes. Say what you want about the original trilogy, the fact of the matter is that a lot of people were looking forward to the next chapter of that franchise even in spite of the dismal 3rd outing. Honestly I think this one is gonna clock in at number 3; it will still likely get above 500 mil, but they're gonna need to build up steam for this new brand in order to be a bigtime box office contender again, IMO. For what it's worth, I do think the movie looks good, especially after that awesome new trailer, but this reboot will be viewed in the eyes of fans the same way that any other reboot is: There's a lot to prove, and a lot to live up to.
SM3 was sh*t! that alone crushed the hopes of expanding the trilogy I never read the comics, I just watched the 90's show and love it, first SM was awesome, Second reached the peak and third one totally f*cked up! I'm going to watch the new SM movie and I hope is great!
I think it will do well, but it isn't riding on the back of various other franchises...or two previous installments with loads of fans. :/ Do people like Spider-man? Yes. People love Spider-man. He is arguably the easiest superhero to relate with. The problem is that nobody knows it exists...and it doesn't have the star power of Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johannson, etc.
I'm a fan of Marc Webb's movies. I trust he will do a good job.
I still can't believe that when I went to see the Avengers Monday night; in the odeon cinema £D screening they had the 1st teaser trailer for the new spiderman and the new TDR one; all you heard was people groaning and saying how crap the new spiderman film looked or asking what was the point it'd be the same as the 1st one before; however if they'd actually shown either of the newest 2 trailers you can clearly see that it looks different and that the story/enemies etc has been completely rebooted -_-
This Spiderman will probably have a stronger story than Avengers. That's something I look forward to more than mindless action. Avengers was a great movie sure, but Spiderman will probably blow it away in story.
i dont think the new spidey is going to do that great. i say 80 million opening, the third one really soured a lot of people on the franchise and ,marketing is nowhere near the level it used to be for those films.
having said that i actually really enjoyed SM3 aside form a few scenes. but in the end im thankful for a reboot becuase i hate tobey, dunst, and franco. their acting was/has been pathetic in that series and i couldnt wait for them to be replaced. also they ruined venom and the stories, while solid, could be better. overall SM1/3 were just 3/5 for me. reboot is a good thing.
lastly the new trailers have been amazing and the new spiderman looks far more faithful to how peter actually is esp when hes spidey. best scene "you found my weakness....small knives" i was cracking up. ill be part of my 80 million prediction
