Genre and rating: Superhero, not yet rated
Plot: Teen loner Peter Parker discovers a clue that might help him understand why his biological parents abandoned him — and has his fate intertwined with his father’s brilliant partner, Dr. Curt Connors.
Spin: Is it just us, or do the Tobey Maguire–as-Spidey movies seem like they were released 20 years ago? It will be interesting to see how this thematically darker reboot looks under the guidance of a director whose last movie was the rom-com (500) Days of Summer.
