Where did you get THAT image?
It would seem to be a freeze frame from a higher-quality version of the final trailer. I myself gravitate towards that possibility, but in the crazy, wacky, wild world of the Internet, can anyone truly be sure of anything?
Avi Araid convinced Rami to use him. He basically told him "the fans are waiting for him" and that "Spider-Man is EVERYONE's myth, not just yours".
Chances are it's a photo shopped pic of some licorice taffy and chicken wire.
All right, sorry. Where is this final trailer? I haven't seen it kicking around.
I have no idea.
You hate me don't you ? Sorry. I'm really behind the times.
That still doesn't explain that photo though, unless my eyes just aren't sharp enough.
Jeez, that was cool. Even if it was a little too much of a spoiler in terms of venom.
I like how Curt Connors has more of a role. Guess they are using the old animated series as a bit of an inspiration, but it's not a huge stretch to use connors.
That, and I'm sure Marvel doesn't mind having him fleshed out a bit more for the possible Spider-Man 4.
Love the shot of Venom reaching down and grabbing Spidey; vintage horror Sam Raimi, straight out of Evil Dead.
I love this aspect of the Spider-Man movies. The attemp of removing Octopus arms in Spider-Man 2 was one of the most exciting scenes of this franchise so far. The B-Movie way of shooting from Raimi is very interesting and fun.
I dunno...I've said before I'm a wuss so I could do without so many current directors throwing in jump moments. Raimi got me good with "Last night..." in the first movie and Ock throwing the metal shard in 2 but I was prepared for the extreme Goblin close up in 1
Just out of curiosity, have you ever seen any of Raimi's other work? There's a lot more gloss and less grit on Spider-Man, but I like the sheer energy which he's lost none of which powers the films. Darkman and Evil Dead. Great stuff. Incidentally, though, he's also capable of considerable dramatic flair; A Simple Plan is a powerful morality play, and really out of character for him. The close-up didn't get me; the "last night" scene certainly made me jump though!
Agreed. He's part of a whole crop of directors lately like Brian Singer and Chris Nolan who've transitioned from the art-houses to the mainstream. Or, in Raimi's case, the grindhouse .
Hey, Hellcat, I just noticed that your post count is now a little OVER NINE THOUSAND!
No. As I said vaguely, I'm not a horror fan. I'm aware of Raimi's history though and I don't mind a well done quick 'safe' scare, which is what he generally plays with in the Spidey films. However, I'm finding more and more directors are putting in jump moments. Case in point, the sound slowly fading and then BAM!...By the way, Jackson still owes me new undies for Gollum-Bilbo...
NEW SPIDEY 3 BANNERS
Plus NEW Blog video featuring awesome VENOM desgins
There's also the movie called The Gift: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0219699/ - It's somewhat a story that deals with the supernatural but it couldn't be called an horror movie. This flick is also very entertaining.
I like the justification of the Venom design. Well said.
You know what I just realized? That I kindof find interesting?
Traditionally. Eddie hates Spider-man because Spider-man stopped him from being a villain. Spider-man was right to stop him. In this movie, it looks more like Spider-man is just taking out his anger on him. "NO ONE TAKES PICTURES OF SPIDER-MAN!"
So in a way, Spider-man is the one who CREATES Venom... which is actually pretty cool in a way.
Yeah, I've seen that too. It's a sort of supernatural Southern Gothic. Raimi's direction is considerably less manic and more controlled, but very good and superbly atmoospheric. It's offbeat but not super wierd. Billy Bob Thornton's script is pretty good.

In Spider-Man(TM) 3, based on the legendary Marvel Comics series, Peter Parker has finally managed to strike a balance between his devotion to M.J. and his duties as a superhero. But there is a storm brewing on the horizon. When his suit suddenly changes, turning jet-black and enhancing his powers, it transforms Peter as well. Under the influence of the suit, Peter's pride and overconfidence take hold and he begins to neglect the ones he cares about the most. As two of the most-feared villains yet, Sandman and Venom, gather unparalleled power and a thirst for retribution, Spider-Man's greatest battle is the one within himself -- he will need to rediscover who he is and what makes him the hero people love.
