'Amazing Spider-Man' Cast Light Up Empire State Building: Andrew Garfield And Emma Stone (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The cast of "The Amazing Spider-Man" continued their publicity blitz on Monday, gathering in New York for a lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building, which will glow red, blue and red in honor of the film's upcoming release.

'Spider-Man's' Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, and Denis Leary also posed atop the historic landmark.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" doesn't open until July 3, but Hollywood experts are already estimating the blockbuster to become the summer's second biggest box-office moneymaker following "The Avengers."

Monday's photo-op signaled a new front of warm relations between the Empire State Building and Spidey.

In 2011, building owners refused to light up for the Broadway opening of “Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark” because producers wouldn't budge on swapping the musical's use of the Chrysler Building for the Empire State during Spider-Man's battle with the Green Goblin.

And if you didn't know, the Empire State Building presser kicks off Spider-Man week here in New York City, which apparently entails a slew of events taking place at the Museum of Natural History, comic store signings, and volunteer events.

See photos of the cast, including a few adorable shots of real-life couple Garfield and Stone, below:
