LISTEN: The new Spider-Man movie has a tremendous version of that iconic 1960s theme song

Sony are really pulling out all the stops to make sure that their new Spider-Man movie is a success.

While they're already looking at expanding the universe (with a Tom Hardy as Venom spin-off), this time around they've got Marvel involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming, with the addition of Tony "Iron Man" Stark in the mix, having already appeared (and been one of the major highlights) of Captain America: Civil War.

We're not quite sure why some of the previous Spider-Man movies have been considered flops - 2014's The Amazing Spiderman 2 made the least at the box office, but even that still made over $700 million worldwide - but critically it has seen a bit of diminishing returns - again, The Amazing Spiderman 2 scored the lowest, with just 52% on Rotten Tomatoes - but still a good sight better than most of the recent DC movies.

Anyways, one of the big gets they've got working on the new Spider-Man is Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino, who got his big break writing the score for Lost before moving on to the likes of Rogue One, Doctor Strange, Jurassic World and a lot of the recent Pixar movies.

Previously, some biggies have attempted at giving the Spider-Man movies a new sound - including heavy hitters like Danny Elfman, James Horner and Hans Zimmer - but none could hold a candle to the actual original theme song.

You know the one we mean, and if you don't, watching Giacchino lead his orchestra through a big brass-y version of it should jog your memory.

Now all we can hope is that this wasn't just some practise run, done for goofs, and that it ends up in the actual movie.

We'll know for sure when the film drops in Irish cinemas on 5 July.
