Hey kids! Based on box-office receipts it seems you’re really enjoying the new Spider-Man film, but did you know there were other Spider-Man movies before The Amazing Spider-Man? It’s true! Way back in the sepia-toned early 2000s there was an entire trilogy of Spider-Man movies! They were pretty different than the Spider-Man adventures you enjoy today — the love interest was a redhead instead of a blonde, aunt May had gone totally grey, and Peter Parker had a side part. Hmm, I guess the differences were mostly hair-related, but boy was that hair crazy and different!
Well, for those who haven’t seen Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies, a helpful Youtuber has cut this forgotten relic of a trilogy together into a concise six-minute video. Hit the jump to check it out…
Not bad, they even managed to make Spider-Man 3 look pretty passable. Also, I like how the old Spider-Man movies actually have some scenes that take place in daylight.
