Spiderman on the big screen
“The Amazing Spider-Man,” starring a completely new cast from the Tobey Maguire-starring/Sam Raimi-directed trilogy, goes back to Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) high school days as he attempts to find out what happened to his parents in a new Hollywood film opening this week.
Also representing a shift from the previous films and truer to the comic book version of “Spiderman,” Parker invents artificial webs instead of them being organic, and his love interest is Gwen Stacey (Emma Stone). The villain is The Lizard/Dr. Curt Connors ( Rhys Ifans).
The film officially opens Tuesday, but will hit many area theaters at midnight (or shortly thereafter) Monday, so check www.fandango.com for local show times and ticket prices.
