Because it’s mostly the last theatrical trailer. Oh, there’s a highly edited look at a scene where Spidey saves a bunch of people after the Lizard tosses them off a bridge (and, while I was all prepared to hate Spidey needlessly taking his mask off, I thought “not scaring the fuck out of a little kid who is about to plummet to his death” was a pretty solid excuse to do so [although Parker then telling the kid to put on the mask was a bit much]). But then it’s just the trailer, with a new tag at the end. I admit, the shot of all the cars hanging of the bridge via webbing was pretty cool, but one shot does not a 4-minute super preview make, Sony Pictures Marketing Department. For shame. (Via /Film)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
