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!

「蜘蛛人三」下週二就會在台灣上映,不過和往常不同的是,亞洲和部分歐洲國家的觀眾會比下星期五上映的美國和英國觀眾先睹為快。

在這部最新的電影中,彼得.派克(陶比.馬奎爾所飾)在他的攝影工作、學業、愛情和超級英雄的角色之間,一根蠟燭多頭燒,之後他的藍紅蜘蛛人裝變成了黑色,給了他新的力量,讓他在兩名新惡徒—沙人(湯瑪斯.海登.喬治)和毒液(泰佛.葛瑞斯)出現的同時,還身陷內心自我掙扎。

派克還得面對昔日好友哈利.奧斯朋(詹姆斯.法蘭科)成為他的頭號敵人。蜘蛛人第一集中,奧斯朋將他父親的死歸罪於派克,而奧斯朋的父親正好是邪惡天才「綠惡魔」。派克還得面臨「號角日報」對手攝影師艾迪.布洛克。

「蜘蛛人三」片長稍長,將近兩小時又三十分鐘,所以也許在去看電影之前,務必先養精蓄銳。(翻譯︰鄭湘儀)
