Spider-man 3 gets released in time for Halloween in one-disc and two-disc versions

Spider-Man 3 becomes the home entertainment event of the year when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) releases the international blockbuster on DVD October 30, in time for the holiday gift-giving season. Spider-Man 3 will be available in several versions for fans to collect including a single-disc release, a two-disc Special Edition release, PSP, and a three-pack DVD release which will include Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 on DVD with collectible O-Ring packaging. Also available is the "Spider-Man High Definition Trilogy," a three-pack release of all three films on Blu-ray High-Def allowing fans an exclusive opportunity to collect both Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 in high definition, along with "Spider-Man 2.1" and Spider-Man 3. Spider-Man 3 will also be available as a stand-alone two-disc release on Blu-ray High-Def.

The two-disc Spider-Man 3 Blu-ray High-Def 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 two-disc's added value also has 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, the discs offer bloopers, a Snow Patrol music video, and two audio commentary tracks with cast and filmmakers.
