a century doing what they did the very 1st movie what 2008 with iron man with robert downey jr and a tribe with tom holland in the robert downey jr characters of spider-man so byron man tom holland said it all right down to a guy i know but it's cool far from home the british actor tom holland is actually much closer to home in this film because it's it's europe that's getting destroyed . london venice and prague are in for a beating in this latest film as our friendly neighborhood spider-man swings over and tries to save europe's most picturesque landmarks anticipation was high at the film's premiere in l.a. fans are nervous to see if this spider-man can reboot the marvel cinematic universe after the epic conclusion that was a dangerous anger star tom hall and promises still get their money's worth. all new spider-man something we've never seen. the for stakes high than they've ever been before the film the follows the mosque the peace it is a vengeance and you know this film is the conclusion to face 3 and it is the
1:48 am
introduction of face for the and it won't disappoint. but if you're really going to europe. peter parker wants to take a break from being spiderman and on a school trip to europe get back to being an awkward teenager maybe even get a little bit closer to a very special if somewhat snarky girl m.j. you're really pretty and therefore i have value no no that's not what i meant at all i was just a messing with you. and. you're welcome you look pretty too but romance will have to wait there are big baddies to fight in the form of magic creatures called the elementals new onboard is jake gyllenhaal as the very weird looking superhero mysterio you don't want to be part of this. along with saving the world spider-man also has to learn to grow up and take on the mantle of being a hero as well as a burden of shouldering marvel's
1:49 am
a multi-billion dollar movie franchise. are you this franchise it's bigger the ball business bigger than star wars but it's actually not big going that long how come it's a huge yeah i mean marvel's quite quite amazing just as a business proposition but i mean they've they've they've managed to create a very strict formula with you know superheroes action in every film that they make but within that formula they have a huge variety of genres i mean. you know the the galaxy the guardian the galaxy films or some space spoofs you know you have serious dramas or war movies like captain america moves or war movies this is the spider-man movie this version is actually a teen romantic comedy as much as it is an action film and and the best scenes i think in this will be are the ones that feel almost like a john hughes. movie i mean the flirtatious scenes with m.j. and peter parker is as and seems like teens just hanging out talking about t.v.
1:50 am
and so on i mean not going to get that a james bond movie i think that really broadly expands the market and the audience for these trends and these movies they get really good actors and directors don't you know that's that's also the amazing thing i mean you've had like you know robert downey jr k. plan chad benedict cumberbatch have all been marvel superhero stars and here in this film we've got jake gyllenhaal who's who's who's a phenomenal actor who's never done this kind of movies before and he plays a kind of real figure this mysterio who wears a sort of fishbowl glowing fishbowl helmet you know on the page it would be utterly ridiculous but he's such a great actor a joho is that he gives a depth to this character and creates what would actually seem to be a joke into something that is almost a commentary on on faith news that's a bit of a commentary on donald trump i want to give any spoilers but there's a lot there i mean you can say what you will about the barbel films they are formulaic but they're also very very stark and if you want to you can read a lot into it and they're very funny very gentle save themselves seriously very much very much as always thanks very much. now if
