Amazing Spider-Man 2 featurettes go behind the scenes

Following the recent slew of trailers for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony Pictures have switched tactics to another classic standby of film PR: the behind the scenes featurette.

The behind the scenes peek, whilst not really delivering anything new, does at least feel like producers are going the Chris Nolan route where they can, delivering some big practical work alongside all the CGI wizardry. Paul Giamatti (Rhino) even admits he was surprised how much of it they did for real, and how often Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) was in the suit, clinging to the side of a truck, in the big opening set piece.

For the other video, it's much more about Peter Parker's relationships with those he's closest to becoming strained, including Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and Aunt May (Sally Field). From the looks of it, Peter's having serious issues dealing with being in a relationship with Gwen and the promise he made to her late father, Denis Leary's NYPD captain, to stay away and ensure her safety. Plus, being a superhero isn't all its cracked up to be: when you have a cold, wearing an all-encompassing mask can get messy pretty messy.

With Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Felicity Jones and Campbell Scott also in the movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits cinemas on 18 April 2014, with two more instalments planned for May 2016 and May 2018.
