Trailers Without Pity: <i>The Amazing Spider-Man</i>

Listen bud, Spider-Man may be strong (he's got radioactive blood) and can swing from a web (take a look overhead) but is he mighty enough to survive the biggest challenge of all... a franchise reboot? We'll find out on July 3 when The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters featuring an all-new wall crawler (Andrew Garfield replaced Tobey Maguire), an all-new director (Marc Webb taking over from Sam Raimi), an all-new origin story (what's the deal with Peter Parker's missing dad anyway?) and an all-new tone (dark like Batman Begins rather than bright and colorful like the original Spider-Man).

Trailers Without Pity: <i>The Muppets</i>

It's time to play the music! It's time to light the lights! It's time to welcome back the Muppets to the big screen with the franchise reboot, The Muppets, co-written by and starring self-professed Muppet lover, Jason Segel. The How I Met Your Mother star plays Gary, a small-town guy whose best pal Walter is the world's biggest Muppet fan. After learning that the old Muppet theater is about to be demolished by an oil magnate, the duo (along with Gary's girlfriend, Mary, played by Amy Adams) hit the road to reunite Kermit and the gang by any means necessary.
