If you follow me anywhere on the interwebs, you know I do my best to visit the TRex in Times Square on every visit...which is code for a Toys R Us run. Recently, this flagship store has been utilizing a bit of space amid the lil kiddie toys to celebrate the latest superhero films with brilliant displays surrounded by the expected piles of tie-in merchandise. The newest addition to this area is a killer display of props from The Amazing Spider-Man, providing a live look at that crazy innovative mask design and the mechanical web shooters fans have been screaming for since day 1.
The Amazing Spider-Man" is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero. The Amazing Spider-Man will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012.
