Teenage social outcast Peter Parker spends his days trying to unravel the mystery of his own past, and trying to win the heart of his high school crush, Gwen Stacy. Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase belonging to his father, who abandoned him when he was a child, which leads him to his father's former research partner, Dr. Curtis Connors. The discovery of his father's secret coupled with an encounter with a genetically altered spider, will ultimately shape his destiny to become "Spider-Man" and bring him face to face with Connors, who becomes the Lizard.

Until she took the plunge, and things between her and Peter snapped.
Hopefully going at some point this week, and I'm willing to bet I'll see it multiple times before it goes out of the cinema. I won't be seeing it in 3D though, because like strawberry float am I watching a Spider-Man film with a dull picture.
Going to see it on Wednesday. I wasn't really bothered about it, but the last few trailers have me pretty excited. I'll be absolutely shocked if this isn't better than Spider-Man 3 and possibly 1 as well.
I just wish Marvel could get the movie rights to this and everything else they sold off back, but that obviously won't happen for a long time.
Quite looking forward to this. It looks like a much better Spider-man film if you get what I mean. I rewatched the Spidey trilogy and while they were good for the time they have aged considerably. Spider-man has aged the worst, Peter and MJ are miscast and it's very cheesy. That said the end fight between him and Goblin was amazing. Spider-man 2 is the best of the 3 and 3 is an absolute train-wreck. I was hoping it'd be like Iron man 2 where it isn't as bad as I remember....it was. Total mess of a film...which is a shame as it has it moments. The Birth of Sandman is such an amazing moment. Plot holes, retcons and cheese make it unwatchable.
The problem I had with the other films was Tobey Maguire. I just didn't believe him as a high school kid etc. Really chapped my ass seeing him up there.
I think it's good that we'll get to see Peter do some actual scientific work in this one, building the web shooters etc, as we really didn't see any of that in the Raimi films, but he appeared to be quite handy with a sewing machine.
