The Spider-Man 3 legacy
By rick martin
Definitely a mass hysteria creator, Spiderman 3 is to be released this spring. Millions await the breathtaking final part of the trilogy which brings along exquisite performances and staggering internal turmoil of the main character. Don't blink – you might miss it all!
The Spider-Man 3 trailer has already been devoured by fans. But nothing from the trailer strikes more than the suggestion that, and I quote, it 'could be the end of Spiderman'. Threatening with the possible death of the beloved main character is a well-known publicity stunt that has proven to sell millions of film tickets. J.K. Rowling has set an example when claiming, in a press release, that Harry Potter may not survive the seventh book of the series. Breaking the habit of the Hollywood happy endings, such announcements can slightly change the audience's perception. At the end of the day, it might even win some skeptics over and make more people go see the movie just to satisfy their curiosity.
Spider-Man 3 was the subject of thorough advertising plans. Its release date was actually set before the second part of the trilogy was released in 2004. Needless to say, after the 2002 success of the first part, lead actor Tobey Maguire signed his contract for Spiderman 2 and Spiderman 3 in a matter of weeks.
It appears that people in the movie business have varying opinions, regardless of what critics and fans think of Spiderman 3. Some are more enthusiastic. For example, Topher Grace decided not to star in "That 70's Show" in favor of starring in Spider-Man 3 as Eddie Brock (or Venom). On the less enthusiastic side is John Dykstra – he won an Oscar as visual effects supervisor for the second part of the trilogy, but refused to be part of the crew for Spider-Man 3, for unknown reasons.
Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace are key actors, starring as key characters of Spider-Man 3: 'Sandman' and 'Venom'. They both make things harder for Peter Parker and add to the already existing trouble: the black entity possessing him. However, none of the two actors had any idea what they were going to audition for when they were subtly invited to the Sony Studios. Plus, out of all Spiderman 3 characters, Sam Raimi also put a lot of faith into 'Venom'. He went as far as claiming to hate the character, but then pre-releasing exclusive images with unfinished special effects. The public went hysterical.
Dual characters rule the Spider-Man trilogy, either good (Peter Parker/Spiderman) or bad (Eddie Brock/Venom). Either way, one of the main events of the movie's plot outline is the return of Harry Osborne, looking to avenge his father's death by killing Spiderman. He continues working with his father's technology (which made the Green Goblin possible).
An intriguing fact: The approximately 600 latex balloons that were used for the celebration party were hand-painted, using markers. Apparently, Spiderman 3 will be the most expensive movie ever made. Its budget is estimated to about $250 million, and it even costs more than previous King Kong which was top of the list for a while (a mere $207 million).
