Director: Sam Rami Starring:Willem Dafoe, Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst Released:Fri 02 Aug 2024

Synopsis

After being bitten by a genetically-modified spider, shy teenager Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) gains spider-like abilities that he uses to fight injustice as a masked superhero and face the vengeful Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe).
This summer, we’re presenting Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, back on the big screen!

At the turn of the century, only black leather clad superheroes like Blade and the X-Men were enjoying any success at the box office. It would take the director of the Evil Dead trilogy to make superheroes like Spider-Man, in red and blue spandex, look cool in live-action. It might be an exaggeration to say that Sam Raimi and Sony reinvented the superhero movie, but seeing Spider-Man swinging around New York was like seeing Christopher Reeve flying for the first time – a watershed moment in the genre.
