Spider-Man 3 becomes the home entertainment event of the year when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) releases the international blockbuster on DVD on 15th October 2007, in time for the Christmas gifting season. Spider-Man 3 will be available in several versions for fans to collect, including a trade wide 2-disc Special Edition release, UMD video and a 6-disc DVD release which will include 2-disc versions of all three Spider-Man films on DVD.
Also available is the limited edition 6-disc deluxe box set which includes Spider-Man 1, Spider-Man 2.1 (the extended cut) and Spider-Man 3 plus a 52 page Marvel mega-guide as well as premium collectible packaging. In addition, Spider-Man 3 will also be available as a 2-disc release on high definition Blu-ray format as well as making up one third of the 4-disc Spider-Man High Definition Trilogy which also includes Spider-Man and the extended cut version of Spider-Man 2. This represents an exclusive opportunity to own these two movies in high definition as they are not being released separately.
Grossing nearly £34 million at the UK box office and more than $888 million worldwide during its theatrical run, Spider-Man 3 set numerous records, including the No 1 all-time worldwide opening ($231 million). Tobey Maguire (Seabiscuit, The Good German), Kirsten Dunst (Marie Antoinette, Elizabethtown), James Franco (Annapolis), Academy Award® nominee Rosemary Harris (Best Actress, Tom & Viv, 1995, Being Julia), and J.K. Simmons (Thank You For Smoking) reprise their roles from the first two instalments of the franchise under the direction of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2).
Joining the cast are Academy Award® nominee Thomas Haden Church (Best Supporting Actor, Sideways, 2005), Topher Grace (In Good Company, Mona Lisa Smile), Bryce Dallas Howard (Lady in the Water, The Village), and Academy Award® nominee James Cromwell (Best Supporting Actor, Babe, 1996). The producers are Laura Ziskin (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2), Avi Arad (Spider-Man, X-Men), and Grant Curtis (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2). The executive producers are Stan Lee, Kevin Feige (Spider-Man 2, X Men 2), and Joseph M. Caracciolo (Spider-Man 2, Charlie's Angels).
The two-disc Spider-Man 3 Blu-ray and two-disc Special Edition DVD offer fans more than six hours of all-new bonus materials, including a trio of featurettes spotlighting the cinematic creation of the web crawler's greatest nemeses. Grains of Sand - Building Sandman details the challenges Sony Pictures Imageworks faced in creating the iconic villain; Re-Imagining the Goblin explores the changes in the New Goblin character from page to screen; and Covered in Black: Creating Venom follows the cinematic creation of Spider-Man's archrival.
The added value also includes a trio of features on the creation of the spectacular stunts in the movie: Hanging On - Gwen Stacy & The Collapsing Floor, where stunt coordinator Scott Rogers explores the logistics of the dangerous stunt performed by Bryce Dallas Howard; Fighting, Flying & Driving: The Stunts, wherein Stunt Coordinator/2nd Unit Director Dan Bradley and Stunt Coordinator Scott Rogers provide a behind-the-scenes peek at the various gags in the film; and Wall of Water where the viewer is taken into the creation of one of the biggest stunts in the film. In addition, there are a Snow Patrol music video, and two audio commentary tracks with cast and filmmakers.
