News and Reviews

07/16/02 - Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is planning to spend $100 million to make Spider-Man the No. 1-selling video of all time, the Los Angeles Daily News reported today, citing studio executives. "We want to break every record and we know this is the title that definitely can," Suzanne White, vice president of marketing for the company's home-video division, told the newspaper. "With such a broad-appeal film and the fact that it's the holiday gift giving season [it will be released on Nov. 1, this is a natural." The top-selling home video of all time is Disney's The Lion King, which sold more than 30 million copies in the U.S. Studio Briefing

Based on the legendary flagship character of Marvel comics, this is the story of Peter Parker, a high school student living with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben after the death of his parents when he was just a baby. He's an avid student with a much-less-than-stellar social life and a knack for bad luck. While attending a scientific demonstration, a freak accident bombards a stray spider with radiation, and that same spider finds its way onto the unsuspecting Peter's body and bites him, miraculously granting him incredible spider-like abilities; in effect, making him into the amazing Spider-Man. Peter will find that there's a thin line between an ordinary man and an extraordinary hero; and he'll have to be the one to cross it. - Yahoo
