One of Hollywood’s most anticipated film’s Marc Webb’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ releases in India today (May1).
After the magnanimous success of its predecessor, the Andrew Garfield starrer film will follow the adventures of Spider-Man who saves the day as he tackles a new villain Electro essayed by Jamie Foxx.
Spider-Man is having a blast, swinging, somersaulting and wise-cracking his way around the skyscrapers and streets of New York, trouncing bullies and fighting crime.
The highlight of the film is its high end action stunts designed by Andy Armstrong and off course the new anti-hero Electro.
The film also stars Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field.
The film which released internationally in April, has got rave reviews and has already made $132 million at the international box office.
The popularity of ‘spidey’ films has always been high in India. However the current favourites – Alia Bhattt and Arjun Kapoor’s ‘2 States’ – may challenge Spider-Man’s popularity.
Nevertheless, The ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ release a day ahead of the weekend is surely going to provide an edge to the BO collection. (with inputs from Reuters)
