Not a Movie Snob - POTW: The Amazing Spider-Man

Poster of the Week: The Amazing Spider-Man

I'm not a big Spiderman fan (my son is). I wasn't too keen on the previous three Sam Raimi flicks, and have little to no excitement about the very soon after the last franchise reboot Sony have going on next year, but this poster is just cool. It looks cool and makes me want to see the movie a little more, which is what posters should do. The darkness around the edges and body language of the arachni-dude make me wonder, and hope, that this means the new film will be taking Spidey in a darker direction than he has been before. Darker as in Batman, c.o. Tim Burton or Chris Nolan, not darker as in emo-goth awkwardness c.o. Toby Maguire in Spiderman 3.

Other than that, it's your typical Spiderman up there. Damn cool poster though. Damn cool.
