London’s Leicester Square opened its arms to its friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man this evening as Marc Webb’s much-hyped sequel came to town.
Webb reunites with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and welcomes newcomers Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti as Electro and The Rhino respectively.
Arguably the film which kicks off the 2014 blockbuster season the film has had a turbulent critical reception (we, for the record, rather liked it) but there’s no doubting the excitement which greeted the stars of the show as they arrived in town tonight.
With another Spidey film or two lined up, as well as films featuring Venom and the Sinister Six planned, there’s a lot riding on this one.
Ben Mortimer and Will Roberts were on hand this evening to talk to the great and the good. Here are the fruits of their red carpet labours.
