Research The Amazing Spider Man 2-Notes

Pre production:

  • The movie is a remake of the original Spider-man sequel it is also an adaptation. 
  • Director: Mark Webb
  • Studios: Marvel Enterprises, Avi Arad Productions, Columbia Pictures and Matt Tolmach Productions
  • Budget: $255million
  • Stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx
  • Development of the film began with the cancellation of Spider-Man 4 in 2010.

  • Some filming locations in New York, a lot filmed in studio
  • The film was the first Hollywood production to be filmed with the Red Digital Cinema Camera Company's RED Epic camera and was shot in 3-D at 5K resolution.
  • Webb wanted cameras small enough to fit on the rigs and swing around very fast, saying that the "RED Epic cameras were the right cameras to do that."
  • The movie uses CGI in big scenes such as when Electro realises his powers, the scene is made up of computer generated imagery to create a visually appealing Times Square. Perhaps the greatest meeting of fantastical and physical in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is Spidey’s fight with Electro in Times Square. This sequence took over a week to shoot, with time split between Times Square and a Long Island soundstage. And between the shooting, pre-production, and post-production work, the scenes took about one year to complete.
  • Problems: 
Post production
  • Like its predecessor, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 leans heavily on digital effects, but the FX team at Sony Imageworks is committed to keeping the action as real as possible. 
  • Electro’s look consists of three key elements. He has “e-skin” that depicts electric-like veins pulsing beneath the surface of his skin. For his special powers, Electro fires “e-blasts” which are lightning bolts which pre-charge within his clenched hands and, lastly, Imageworks also had to show how much impact a high-voltage character would have on his environment.
  • Aside from all of the associated VFX work for Electro, Houdini was also used to handle a range of VFX for the film. Imageworks VFX Lead Charles-Felix Chabert led the Destruction team who created everything from the large-scale destruction sequences of Times Square and The Power Plant, to smaller set pieces like Electro flattening the Oscorp Office.
  • Relies on special effects as it uses animation for certain scenes.
  • The film was shot in 3D so it didn't need to be added afterwards.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 filmed re-shoots and additional scenes around New York City (though none of the major cast took part in the filming).
  • Trailer- gives the audience a taste of the film without releasing to much information therefore leaving them wanting more.
  • Poster- can be very effective, a carefully designed poster can portray action and excitement in the film.
  • Interviews with the cast- This method of marketing gives the film a more friendly vibe as the audience can feel a connection with the stars. This will also please fans of for example Andrew Garfield and promote the movie on prime time TV. They did an interview on The Ellen show which is watched by millions.
  • On December 8, 2013, it was announced that new footage from the film would be presented during New Year's Eve festivities at New York City's Times Square.
  • On July 17, 2013, Sony released a clip from the film with the first released footage of Jamie Foxx as Electro to encourage attendance at their panel at the San Diego Comic-Con International.
  • London Premier: April 10th 2014
  • UK Premier: April 16th 2014
