Spiderman 3 hits Taipei 蜘蛛人三席捲台北

Next Tuesday Spiderman 3 opens in Taiwan. Unusually, audiences in Asia and some European countries will get to see the new movie ahead of those in the US and UK, where it opens on Friday.

In this latest film, Peter Parker (played by Tobey Maguire) is juggling his photography job, schoolwork, love life and being a superhero. Then he gains fresh powers when his blue-and-red Spidey costume turns black and his dark side comes out, leaving him tangled up in an inner struggle just as two new villains, Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) and Venom (Topher Grace), turn up.

Parker also has to deal with an enemy in his former best friend, Harry Osborn (James Franco). In the first Spider-Man, Parker was to blame for the death of Osborn's father, who also happened to be the Green Goblin, an evil genius. Parker also has problems with a rival photographer at the Daily Bugle, Eddie Brock.

Spiderman 3 is pretty long at nearly two and a half hours, so maybe make sure you take a nap before you go see it!
