With The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters this week, it's high time you read up on the making of the film and it's future as spoken by the stars themselves, today's interview being with none other than Dennis Leary.

The Amazing Spider-Man movie: our first look

This month we had a chance to take a look at an early screening of the upcoming blockbuster action film The Amazing Spider-Man, and what little we can tell you at the moment includes this: the visual effects here take the cake. While the refresh of the Spider-Man movie series has a story that is thrilling in its relative newness, it's the mise en scene that will strike you hardest.
