In Spider-Man-® 2, the latest installment in the blockbuster Spider-Man-® series, based on the classic Marvel Comics hero, Tobey Maguire returns as the mild-mannered Peter Parker, who is juggling the delicate balance of his dual life as a college student and a superhuman crime fighter.

The entertaining adventure escalates and Spider-Man's life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius, (Alfred Molina) who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled "Doc Ock."

TAKE ANOTHER SPIN IN IMAX!
LOS ANGELES
, CA - Audiences will be able to take another spin in IMAX-® as Spider-Man 2: The IMAX Experience opens in select IMAX Theatres beginning July 23, 2004. This critically acclaimed film from Columbia Pictures, which has already generated more than $500 million in box office worldwide since its release, has been digitally re-mastered with IMAX's proprietary IMAX DMR-® technology into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience-®.

Spider-Man 2 moviegoers will experience this blockbuster sequel in a whole new way, on screens towering up to 8 stories high, surrounded by 12,000 watts of pure digital sound. With IMAX DMR, the image quality of the 35mm motion picture is digitally enhanced resulting in images that are every bit as big, sharp and stunning as those films originally produced in the 15/70 format. In fact, once the IMAX DMR process is complete, the Spider-Man 2: The IMAX Experience film format will be 10 times larger than the original. The sheer size, combined with the IMAX projection technology, will provide moviegoers with an immersive, extraordinary cinematic experience.

"When you have a movie like Spider-Man 2, it makes sense to offer audiences an opportunity to experience the film in this incredible format," said Jeff Blake, Vice Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution.

Spider-Man 2: The IMAX Experience will be playing at the following IMAX Theatres:

In Columbia Pictures Spider-Man-® 2, two years have passed since Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) walked away from his longtime love Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) and decided to take the road to responsibility as Spider-Man. Peter must face new challenges as he struggles to cope with "the gift and the curse" of his powers while balancing his dual identities as the elusive superhero Spider-Man and life as a college student. The relationships Peter holds most dear are now in danger of unraveling as he clashes with the powerful, multi-tentacled villain "Doc Ock" (Alfred Molina).

Spider-Man-® 2 reunites the cast and filmmakers from the first adventure, including Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Rosemary Harris and J.K.
