Trailer Alert! Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse

One of the most anticipated releases of 2023 is undoubtedly Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the long awaited sequel to 2018’s Into The Spider-Verse. I didn’t quite nerd out over this film as much as others did when this came out, I was maybe a year or so late to the party when I caught it on Netflix, but there’s no denying that it was really good.

For starters, the animation in this franchise is next-level shit. I had never seen anything like the original and it’s probably the most comic-y comic book movie I’ve ever seen. I loved the brand of humor the film had in juxtaposition with some of its more dramatic moments. I dare any superhero movie skeptic to not have a chuckle at Peter Porker’s expense. Not to mention the soundtrack is banger after banger. Miles Morales’ opening monologue set to “Sunflower” has got to be one of most iconic uses of music in film in the last decade or so.

If you need some context for just how big this sequel is going to be consider this: the original grossed just under $200 million domestically but its popularity as only grown with streaming and syndication. The film currently boasts an 8.4 on IMDb and ranks at #66 on their all-time films list as voted by fans. Plus, the film won an Oscar for Best Animated Picture.

The talent associated with the sequel is insane. Christopher Miller and Phil Lord (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street) wrote the film with the latter returning from the original. Shamiek Moore (Dope, great movie by the way), Hailee Steinfeld (Hawkeye), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Luna Lauren Velez (Dexter), Brian Tyree Henry (Causeway), and Oscar Isaac (Dune) are all returning with Issa Rae (Insecure), Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live), Daniel Kaluuya (Nope), Jason Schwartzman (Klaus), Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire), and Jorma Tacome (Hot Rod) joining in on the fun.

As for the trailer itself, I don’t have a ton to say rather than I’m excited to see this one in theaters. Surprisingly emotional while not giving too much away I’d say it was a perfect teaser. It looks like we’re back for another trippy comic book style film with some more great music. My favorite part is without a doubt Spider-Man swiping a hot dog and web slinging the vendor a dollar. That’s a great microcosm of the kind of humor one should expect from this film.

Fans will have to wait a little while as the film isn’t being released until June 2 but until then the film is a regular staple in FX’s rotation of movies.
