I’m still wrapping my head around the idea of a brand-friggin’-new Spider-Man origin story coming out only ten years after Sam Raimi‘s 2002 original, also an origin story. Boil them down and they’re more or less the same movie.

This is the second opener in a major franchise to be re-made and released within the same decade, the first being David Fincher‘s 2011 Dragon Tattoo reboot on the heels of the Niels Arden Oplev‘s 2009 original. And both from Sony Pictures, of course.
