Spidey Swings Early
Sony Pictures announced at ShoWest that SPIDER-MAN 2 – the sequel to the hugely successful Sam Raimi-helmed 2002 picture – will swing into theaters two days early to take full advantage of the Independence Day holiday.
The movie, previously scheduled for a July 2nd release, will now open June 30th. SPIDER-MAN 2 reunites the original film’s cast of Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Kirsten Dunst as love interest Mary Jane Watson, and James Franco as Harry Osborne, son of the first film’s villain, Norman Osborne/Green Goblin. In 2, Maguire must struggle to contend with his feelings for Mary Jane while keeping her out of the many arms of the insane Dr. Otto Octavius.
Also returning are J.K Simmons as irate newspaper mogul J. Jonah Jameson, Rosemary Harris as the constantly imperiled Aunt May, and Sam Raimi mainstays Ted Raimi and Bruce Campbell. New to the cast are Alfred Molina as Octavius/Dr. Octopus; Daniel Gillies as John Jameson, JJJ’s astronaut son and MJ’s new beau; and Dylan Baker as Dr. Curt Conners, the one-armed alter ego of another Spidey villain, the Lizard.
To commemorate the release of the first SPIDER-MAN film, comic shops around the country participated in a nationwide program called FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, which has become a much anticipated annual event. Keeping with that tradition, July 3rd has been named 2004’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. Sony’s move is not expected to upset the comic industry’s plans for celebration.
