Late last year, we were hit with one of the best movies of the year (and the best Spider-Man movie ever) with Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The movie recently beat out the likes of The Incredibles 2 and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Film at this year's Oscars. And if you missed the movie in theaters, no worries as today we have the first ten minutes of the flick for you to check out. Actually, it's just the first nine minutes of the movie, but really, who's counting.

Anyhow, if you're on the fence about whether or not this Oscar Winning animated "kid's movie" is for you, I highly suggest checking out the video below on the biggest screen you've got at your disposal. Not only is the film's screenplay one of the most creative we've seen from a superhero movie in a long time (if not ever) but the visual style of the flick has to be seen to be believed. Mind-blowing is a way to describe it. Jaw-dropping is another. Scrumtrulescent might be the best though. This is a movie my kids watch on repeat now that it's hit Digital and I don't mind one bit. True story: my 3-year old nephew is currently watching the movie in the living room as I type this. And that's totally fine with me. Enjoy kid and don't forget to crank it up.

Here's the synopsis if you're unaware.

"Teen Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man of his reality, crossing his path with five counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities."

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is rated PG for frenetic sequences of animated action violence, thematic elements, and mild language.

Bonus materials include featurettes such as We Are Spider-Man, Spider-Verse: A New Dimension, The Ultimate Comics Cast, Designing Cinematic Comics Characters, and Heroes & Hams.
