Rob and Chris and I just bought our opening-night tickets for Spider-man at the AMC 1000 on Van Ness. We are excited. I, personally, have come a long way since the early marketing for Spider-man. The original trailer (the one that featured the World Trade Center towers) was one of the worst teaser trailers I’ve ever seen.
The first trailer (and to a lesser extent the second trailer) completely changed my impression of the movie. Now instead of painfully blockbusterish and lame it’s painfully blockbusterish and cool. I wonder if Spider-man will prove to be to Star Wars Episode II what The Matrix was to Episode I.
Only time will tell.
[Also: I feel Nick’s pain. They’re all a bunch of incompetent liars.]
