Spider-Man 3 Plot

Columbia Pictures' Spider-Man(TM) 3 reunites the cast and filmmakers from the first two blockbuster adventures for a web of excitement that transports worldwide audiences to thrilling new heights.

In Spider-Man(TM) 3, based on the legendary Marvel Comics series, Peter Parker has finally managed to strike a balance between his devotion to M.J. and his duties as a superhero. But there is a storm brewing on the horizon. When his Spider-Man suit suddenly changes, turning jet-black and enhancing his powers, it transforms Peter as well.

Under the influence of the suit, Peter becomes prideful and overconfident and he begins to neglect the ones he cares about the most. As two of the most-feared villains yet, Sandman and Venom, gather unparalleled power and a thirst for retribution, Peter's greatest battle is the one within himself. Spider-Man will need to rediscover the compassion that makes him who he is: a hero.

Columbia Pictures Presents A Marvel Studios/Laura Ziskin Production Spider-Man(TM) 3 starring Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell, Rosemary Harris, and J.K. Simmons.

The film is directed by Sam Raimi. The screenplay is by Sam Raimi & Ivan Raimi and Alvin Sargent and the screen story by Sam Raimi & Ivan Raimi and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The producers are Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Grant Curtis. The executive producers are Stan Lee, Kevin Feige, and Joseph M. Caracciolo.

The third installment of the phenomenally successful Spider-Man (R) franchise will be digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience (R).

SpiderMan (R) 3 will be directed by Sam Raimi, who also directed the first two blockbuster installments of the Marvel Comics superhero, Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, which reunites the cast led by Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco. To date, the Spider-Man series has surpassed $1.6 billion in worldwide box office receipts.

"The simultaneous IMAX release of Spider-Man 3 allows us to celebrate one of the most anticipated motion picture events of the year in an exciting event format," said Rory Bruer, President, Domestic Distribution, Sony Pictures Releasing. "Spider-Man 3: The IMAX Experience will give fans of Spider-Man an opportunity to experience the next exhilarating installment of the series in an unforgettably unique and immersive way."

"Spider-Man is one of the world's most popular motion picture franchises, and we are thrilled to include the latest chapter as part of our 2007 lineup," said IMAX Co-Chairmen and Co-CEOs Richard L. Gelfond and Bradley J. Wechsler. "Moviegoers loved Spider-Man 2 in IMAX theatres, and with a larger theatre network for Spider-Man 3 - we estimate that well over 100 IMAX theatres in North America will exhibit the film vs. 63 for Spider-Man 2 - we will be able to garner an even wider audience, significantly increasing the earning potential for the IMAX release. We are confident that the success of our remaining 2006 slate combined with the early announcements for 2007 will continue to drive exhibitor interest in the IMAX theatre business."

"We are delighted to team up with our friends at Columbia Pictures to bring this beloved superhero back to IMAX theatres," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "Our 2007 film slate is taking shape earlier than any previous year, and we believe this clearly highlights the increasing value studios see in the IMAX theatre network as it continues to grow worldwide. Spider-Man is ideally suited to the immersive power of The IMAX Experience, and we look forward to next May when moviegoers will be able to continue the journey with the next chapter of the Spider-Man story."

Spider-Man 3 marks the third motion picture agreement between Sony Pictures Entertainment and IMAX. The studio previously released Spider-Man(R) 2 to IMAX theatres in 2004 and is scheduled to release Open Season, the first feature from Sony Pictures Animation, in IMAX(R)3D on Spetember 29, 2006.
