    This bit of footage was shown at ShoWest....

    This media screening was just like what New Line did last year for 'The Lord of the Rings'. They show you footage equalling bout 30 minutes, whilst the rest of the film is still in post-production. The big difference is, Sony didn't have a reel of film, they just made it on a DVD. So, the 36 minutes of footage is about 30 minutes of beginning of 'Spider-Man', with 2 minutes hightlight of good vs. evil character battle, and the trailer.

    The film begins with lots of New York city scenes with Tobey's voice as the narrator. He said something like this, 'Some people tell you I am nothihg but a illusion. Some people lie.', also 'Everything story has a begining, this story begins with a girl, the girl next door.'

    Then the lens jumps to Columbia University, a bunch of High School students are getting together for a field trip to the lab inside the University. One of the girl is Mary, played by Kirsten Dunst, she seems to wave her hands to Peter, played by Tobey Maguire, actually waving to her girlfriends.

    Mary has a rich, strong boyfriend. He and his gangsters keep punching Peter whenever Peter wants to take a photo. That's why they don't pay attention to the tour girl explains how the lab create the super spider by the combination of three kinds of spider. When Peter finally gets his chance to talk to Mary alone, take her a picture, the spider bites him.

    Peter goes home, skips his dinner, feels so uncomfortable and lays down on the floor of his room. When he wakes up next day, the funny thing happens. He doesn't need his eye glasses any more, and becomes a muscle guy! He feels amazing, can't wait to go to school.

    When he catches Mary before she falls down in the cafeteria, he surprisely finds out he can shoot spider silk or web. He knocks out Mary's ruthless boyfriend when he practices his skill, pissing him off. Peter runs out the cafeteria to his locker room. But all the gangsters get together to punch him.

    Then the bullet time special effect take over the scene, everybody and everything seems to freeze, slow down, moves very slowly. The camera angle starts to fly around, close to very tiny things in the hall and finally gets back to Peter. When the special effect is over, everything's back to normal. Peter just moves his head so easily to avoid the attack. He jump, kicks with graceful style, then a heavy weight punch to hit his enemy far, far away.

    Peter gets shocked about himself, too. He runs out the school, stops in a lane to check himself. He founds out his fingertips get hairy, make him to climb the wall just as a spider. So he happily runs and jumps off the roof one by one, all over the street. When he comes to a street too wide to jump, He comes up the idea to use the spider web.

    Mary is actually a girl next door Peter always sees her from the window. They live so close. Mary says she doesnt mind Peter punching her boyfriend at school, she thinks he needs some lesson once a while. But her boyfriend shows up by driving a fancy sport car. Mary gets the ride. So Peter makes his mind to buy a fancy car, too. Only he needs lots of money, so he decides to make some by playing wrestle game. He design his own costume, symbol, gets everything ready.

    When Uncle Ben worries about Peter, he drives his car to give hime a ride to downtown, they have an arguement. Uncle Ben tells him 'With great power comes great responsibility, and I am not preaching. You know, I am not your father.' Peter feels piss off and says 'Then stop pretending like one'. Peter goes to wrestle, begins his first adventure. That's all almost about the first 30 minutes of 'Spider-Man'. The rest is some clip about 'Spider-Man' becomes criminal buster. New York citizen talks about what they see and how they feel about him, just like a news report.

    Speaking about the final battle of 'Spider-Man' and 'Green Goblin', it is the New York balcony scene that we have seen in the trailer. Only this time you can see some face movement from 'Green Goblin'. Even Sony didn't show the whole battle, but you can tell they must have a terrible fight from the clip.

    And one clip I like most is about how 'Spider-Man' hangs and flies in the city. He shoots the spider web from one hand, then hangs it over as the rope. When he reaches the limit he can go, he shoots another. So he can hangs and flys in the city very very fast. You can feel the speed in the air from the screen.

    Sony mentions in the press release, they invented the latest photography technology called 'photogrammetry', allows all the background to become a moving background and add speed to the screen, let 'Spider-Man' fly much faster than he really does."
