Sony Pictures has unveiled a brand new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field.

Garfield, 28, is known for his supporting role as Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg's best friend in The Social Network.

But Spider-Man may be his biggest Hollywood break yet. The original Spider-Man movie trilogy launched Tobey Maguire to stardom and earned US$1.1 billion (NZ$1.3 billion) at domestic box offices.

The new movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, hits movie screens in New Zealand on July 4, and will hope to beat that stellar run.

For the reboot, veteran director Sam Raimi turned over the franchise reins to Marc Webb, a newcomer to the genre having previously directed indie romantic comedy, 500 Days of Summer.

In Amazing Spider-Man' Parker goes searching for the reason his parents disappeared when he was a child.

His pursuit brings him face to face with his dad's old partner, Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) who transforms into the villainous Lizard.

Peter Parker also gets a new love interest named Gwen Stacy, played by Garfield's real-life girlfriend Emma Stone.
