As is usually the case these days, SM3 will be released in single-disc form as well as a dual-disc mega-set that house all sorts of spider-sized treats. One the solo-disc release you'll find a pair of audio commentaries (one with director Sam Raimi and actors Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace and Bryce Dallas Howard; the other with producers Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad and Grant Curtis; editor Bob Murawski; and FX supervisor Scott Stokdyk), as well as a blooper reel, some photo galleries and a Snow Patrol music video.
Opt for the 2-disc release and you'll get all of the above plus a second disc filled with featurettes called 1) Grains of Sand -- Building Sandman; 2) Re-Imagining the Goblin; 3) Covered in Black -- Creating Venom; 4) Hanging On ... Gwen Stacy and the Collapsing Floor; 5) Fighting, Flying & Driving -- The Stunts; 6) Tangled Web: The Love Triangles of Spider-Man 3; 7) Wall of Water; 8) On Location Cleveland -- The Chase on Euclid Avenue; 9) On Location New York -- From Rooftops to Backstreets; 10) The Science of Sound; and 11) Inside The Editing Room. Sony claims that the dual-disc release has over six hours of supplemental material -- but that includes the two 2-hour commentaries, now doesn't it?
Of course Sony won't be stopping there. In addition to the 1-disc and 2-disc "normal" DVD releases, you'll also be able to pick up the PSP version, a trilogy 3-pack, the Blu-Ray 2-discer OR the Blu-Ray trilogy set. This DVD news would make me a whole lot happier if I didn't think Spider-Man 3 was a pretty big disappointment -- but maybe a second visit will help me warm up to the flick a little more. Obviously I can't NOT buy the DVD ... my trilogy needs to be complete!
