New trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man”

I’m having trouble getting excited for “The Amazing Spider-Man,” due in theaters July 3, mainly because it just seems so unnecessary: it’s an origin story, and we already had one (and a pretty great one) in the 2002 Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire “Spider-Man.” But Sony’s just launched a new trailer, and I have to say I’m intrigued: Andrew Garfield, who was wonderful in “Never Let Me Go” and “The Social Network,” seems to have an nice light touch here, Emma Stone is always a treat (though I like her better redheaded), and what’s not to like about a trailer that incluces the line “38 of New York’s finest vs. one guy in a unitard”?

And what do you think?
