The Amazing Spider-Man in November
Sony have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of The Amazing Spider-Man on 26 November 2012. In this reboot of the franchise Andrew Garfield stars as a teenage Peter Parker who grapples with both high school and amazing super-human crises as his alter-ego Spider-Man.
The Blu-ray comes with two discs:
Disc one is a Blu-ray containing the feature film, as well as the “Amazing Spider-Man Second Screen App,” which can be used with the Sony Tablet™ S, Xperia Tablet™ S and iPad. The App syncs with the film as it plays in “Timeline” mode and features “Production” mode allowing users to “sling” content from their tablets to the TV screen for a greater and more interactive HD experience. Content includes interviews, storyboards, concept art, pre-visualization sequences, stunt rehearsals, and more. Also included on disc one are deleted scenes, The Oscorp Archives, an image gallery featuring production art stills, and audio commentary with director Marc Webb, and producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

The Blu-ray 3D contains all the features included on standard Blu-ray as well as exclusive special features including an image progression reel and the “3D 101 with Marc Webb” featurette, providing a look at the 3D techniques used for the film and allowing viewers to toggle through three scenes from the film at different levels of 3D.
