Spider-Man 3 First Look Appearing in Theaters

Source: Zarathos, Frizz

December 31, 2006

Two scoopers tell us that the Spider-Man 3 first look preview clip is already appearing in theaters. First up is 'Zarathos':

I just wanted to let you guys know that I went to the movies last night and they had the "AMC: FIRST LOOK" before the film. I was actually expecting to see the one for GHOST RIDER but instead came on one for SPIDER-MAN 3. It showed alot of the same footage from the trailers but also showed a few new scenes like gwen stacey announcing spider-man to the cheering crowd and him swinging in, a scene of Eddie and Peter in the bugle together talking with J.J. about spidey pics. It also layed out the plot as they have in the trailers and talked about the black costume. I'm sure there are a few things in there that I'm missing but that was about it, it was about 3 minutes long

P.S. I went to comic con over the summer and saw the footage they showed, and in it they call topher eddie brock jr. much like he was called in the ultimate story line - no one else ever really mentioned that so I thought it might shine some light on what venom they are doing.

'Frizz' also wrote:

I am a projectionist at a movie theater and this morning when I was booting up the digital projectors I saw the Spider-Man 3 interviews on the First Look. They repeated a lot of stuff that we've heard before, about Spider-Man's ego, but it also showed some new things, like Eddie Brock flirting with Miss Brant, and Topher discussed how Eddie and Peter were competing for the photographer position at the Daily Bugle. It showed a clip of J.J. telling them whoever took a picture of Spider-Man with his "hand in the cookie jar" would get the job. No clips of Venom though.

December 20, 2006

DavisDVD has learned that the extended cut of Spider-Man 2, that will be shown on FX January 2nd, is coming to DVD as well:

It appears that the long standing rumors of an extended edition are finally true. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing Spider-Man 2: Extended Edition in late April, timed to coincide with the web-slinger's latest big-screen adventure "Spider-Man 3." No details about the disc are available yet, but we anticipate more information in about a month (if that).

Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to release.

Franco's Goblin Gets into the Action!

Source: Edward Douglas

December 18, 2006

James Franco has been having a busy year, starting last winter with movies like Tristan & Isolde and Annapolis through the recent WWI drama Flyboys. He also has a small part in the upcoming indie The Dead Girl, but when Superhero Hype! talked to him, we were more interested in finding out from Franco how things were going on Spider-Man 3, particularly in terms of how much more action he's been getting into as the latest Goblin villain.

"Spider-Man is a combination of a lot of green screen and action," he told us. "I mean I shot one action scene that took six weeks for one scene, and then there's months and months and months of work on the computers that I'm not even a part of. When I see those movies, it's a different movie for me, and the process feels completely different than the result. Although Sam is one of the most fun directors I've ever worked with, the process can be tedious. You do small little segments, and when it all adds up and you see the final result, it's still surprising to me just because it sure doesn't feel that way when you're doing it."

Goblins don't have the best of luck in the Spider-Man comics and movies, so we were curious whether he knew anything about Harry Osborn (or anyone else) returning for a possible Spider-Man 4. "When we all signed on--Tobey, Kirsten, and I--we all signed on for three pictures, so when the first one did well, automatically we just did the second and the third. Now, we've done the third and the contracts are up. I guess it's just a little bit more up in the air than the other ones have been. I know that everyone has a great time, and I know that Sony and Marvel could do 100 if they could."

Franco also expressed his disappointment in not being able to make the huge San Diego Comic Con presentation for the movie last July, but he was in the middle of shooting a movie at the time.

Spider-Man 3 opens on May 4, 2007, while Franco can be seen in one segments of The Dead Girl, which opens on December 29 in New York and Los Angeles.

Scooper 'RobinHood' tells fans to look out for a new Spider-Man 3 First Look clip in theaters next month:

Hey guys, love the site, and I've got some Spidey 3 news. Apparently, a Spider-Man 3 segment will be appearing on AMC/Cinemark Theaters First Look pre-feature program in early January. I just got back from a show this evening, and at the end of the First Look bit, they said to look for a Spider-Man 3 First Look clip early next month, and they also showed a bit of footage that we have seen in the trailers. Just thought I'd let you guys know!

Thanks! We'll keep you posted if we hear more on this.

Spider-Man 3 Photos & Preview Article!

Source: jpmuftak

December 14, 2006

Scooper 'jpmuftak' has posted scans of a Spider-Man 3 preview article from the new issue of Premiere magazine.

The article features great new photos from the anticipated third installment, as well as new bits like that Harry Osborn is referred to as the "New Goblin" and his glider is called the "Sky Stick." Venom is confirmed again as being from outer space.

About a possible fourth film, Raimi says, "I'm sure they'll keep making Spider-Man pictures. Amy [Pascal, Sony cochairman] told me that she would. I love 'Spider-Man.' And I love working with Kirsten, Tobey, James. I don't know if Thomas and Topher will be around in the next one, but probably Bryce will be. But I have to make sure that when I'm done with this picture I'm really still fascinated with the charater. At the this moment I'm fascinated with him. Whether or not I will be in six month when the movie's done I couldn't say. And I absolutely would not have anything to do with the picture unless I was hungry to tell the story."

December 12, 2006

Spidey fans alerted us to another early look at Spider-Man 3! We'll start with scooper 'Brick'...

I was watching the Nip/Tuck season finale when during a commercial break FX said they will be premiering Spider-Man 2 Jan. 2 at 7PM. Not only will they be showing Spider-Man 2 but a new version with added story and extended scenes. Also during this there will be a new clip of Spider-Man 3 shown.

'Spider-Who?' wrote:

Hey! Just to let you guys know, the cable channel FX just aired an advertisement about Spider-Man 2, saying that Sam Raimi presents an "exclusive cut" of Spider-Man 2 on January 2.

'Hangintree' added:

Maguire on the Spider-Man 3 Goo

December 11, 2006

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Tobey Maguire revealed a bit more about Spider-Man 3:

"Basically, there's the goo, right? The symbiote which has, like, a dark energy, like the goo from the thing that creates venom." To someone not totally versant in the Spider-Man mythology, Maguire sounds vaguely demented. He realizes it, laughs and backs up. He's not referring to venom, but Venom, "a very, very popular character from the later Spider-Man comics. He has the same kind of attributes that Spider-Man has, but he's just stronger, faster and more vicious than Spider-Man. And it comes from this goo that comes from outer space, so first the goo comes and gets hold of me."

How exactly does it come from outer space? We'll soon know. Hit the link above for the full interview.

New Peeks at Spidey and Ghost Rider?

December 10, 2006

Scooper 'C.A.H.' wrote:

Watch the "Spike TV Video Game Awards" on Wednesday, December 13th at 10 PM EST. time to catch a glimpse at "Ghost Rider" and "Spider-Man 3".

During a commercial for the awards show last night, I saw shots of both GR and SM3 featuring the Rider flinging his chain to something/someone off screen and Harry Osborn/Green Goblin II flying on his glider towards the camera. This could mean we could be getting new looks at both of those films, or looks at their games.

Tune In And Find Out!

This is NOT a Real Spider-Man 3 Poster

Source: Superhero Hype!

December 3, 2006

It's amazing to us how many e-mails we still get daily about this supposed "international" Spider-Man 3 poster that is being labeled so on many, many websites on the internet worldwide.

Folks, this poster was made by a fan and picked up by various sites that started posting it as if it is official. In fact, the person who made the fan art explained what images he used to make the poster here on the SHH! Boards earlier this year.

While it may not be a real poster, kudos to 'hyzak' for making a great-looking pic!

Elfman Working with Young on Spider-Man 3

December 1, 2006

'Phatmaster' pointed out that Spider-Man 3 composer Grant Curtis revealed an interesting bit about the music in his latest Blog update:

Hey SHH! I was just glancing over the Spidey 3 blog earlier reading Grant Curtis' new post, and responding to a comment about the music it seems like he confirmed that Danny Elfman is actually working on Spider-Man 3...

Hi Grant, thanks for paying attention to us, your blog is a great idea. i had questions about the music, but i didn't know where to ask them, so i do there. Will Christopher Young use the main theme created by Danny Elfman at the beginning of the first two movies? Or will he compose a new one? Has the work on music started? Thanks, hope you'll answer me.

Tim, Danny and Chris Young are both working on the picture. We have yet to start actively working on the music, but we will start soon. Thanks for the questions. Grant

Elfman did the score for Spider-Man and Christopher Young took over on Spider-Man 2.
