Spider-Man 4 gets a release date
The next installment of the money-making Spider-Man franchise has been given a release date, this comes from good guy Clint over at Moviehole...
Sony has announced that Peter Parker will sprog his next messy-web in May of 2011, says Variety.
The soon-to-shoot “Spider-Man 4” – which reunites the ‘Golden’ team of Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and Sam Raimi – will hit standard theatres and IMAX on May 6, 2011. It’ll be the first Summer tentpole release of the year.
Another superhero flick, “The First Avenger : Captain America”, had originally been scheduled to open that day – but Marvel decided recently to push it back to July 22.
“Thor”, another comic-book flick, will be out shortly after “Spider-Man 4” – on June 17.
The last two “Spider-Man” pics were also released in Imax theaters, and by the time the next one bows, Imax and Sony should benefit as there will be more of the large-format theaters in the marketplace.
"Our network has grown significantly, and we continue to roll out new theaters virtually every week, giving more moviegoers the opportunity to experience the movie in Imax," said Imax CEO Richard L. Gelfond.
The Gary Ross-penned “Spider-Man 4” is rumoured to be the final instalment for Raimi and stars Maguire and Dunst, with suggestions the studio may either recast or reboot the series for “Spider-Man 5” and “Spider-Man 6”.
