It looks like there's going to be an extended cut of Sam Raimi's second "Spider Man" installment, adding about 50 minutes of new footage, being aired on January 2nd on the US cable channel FX. I hope anybody is going to capture this, since this would be something I'd REALLY look forward to (and since I'm in Europe I won't be able to grab it myself).

Interesting, but where in there do you see anything about 50 minutes of footage being added?

!!!!AWESOME!!!!

Raimi told about 2 years ago that he would release an extended cut, called Spider-Man 2.5, on DVD. It never happened.

Now this looks promising. I have collected some deleted scenes from the first 2 Spider-Man movies. You can see pics of them here:
http://home.planet.nl/~huijs090/spidey/spideydeletedscenes.html

and some other JJJ scene
JJJ finds Peter's clothes at the Bugle,where obviously he ditched them changing into Spidey.:
Hoffman goes by with peter;\'s clthes, and jjj says something like what's that, and hoffman says. "peter parkers pants. and his shirt and tie and shoes and socks." then jjj says, "Who does he think he is, tarzan? what is he, running around the town naked?"

50 min..interesting. The Spiderman 2.5 DVD that Raimi talked about was only supposed to be longer by like 2 or 3 min. I wonder where this 50 min is coming from?

Indeed... only 2 or 3 minutes...

Rumours are that this extended edition will be released on DVD on 23/04/2007. Nice cash-in before Spidey 3 hits theatres.

I'm sorry, my brother told me about this 50 minutes thing... I'll ask him where he got that from.

EDIT: Obviously he got that info from HERE. I'm not sure though if this is just a rumour or some speculation.

50 minutes? The movie was a little long on its normal cut. 50 minutes would be...interesting. 2 or 3 minutes would be pointless.

anybody know of any extended stuff for the first spider-man that might exist?
I'm always looking to trade my edits, if you don't want to get them from a torrent. PM or e-mail!

My guess is that that's 3 hours, including commercials. Or that one guy doesn't know what he's talking about.

Yeah, I'm definitely thinking commercials, too.

If there's fifty minutes of actual Spidey 2 footage added, I'll eat my hat.



I don't own a hat, but I will buy one and then eat it. Scout's honour.

With the amount of commercials they show today they will have to shorten the movie to fit it into 3 hours them.

Did someone watch this, record this and put this online?

edit:

here's what someone posted who saw the cut on tv:

Here's what I saw:

- the swing after Spider-Man grabs the pizzas from the guy on the balcony was about a second longer... Spidey started from a higher-up position.

- the saturation/filter of the film was slightly different... in some scenes, the red was brighter... and it seemed as if the color blue was standing out more

- there was different dialogue between mj and peter in the 'backyard' scene:
mj talks about how the photographer liked her face, and how she got the role in the play... peter says that mj's dream came true... mj asks about how he is doing... he says he is fine..... it then cuts back to old footage...
then, mj says "you want to say something... I know what it's like to want to say something but it just won't come out" yada yada...
a little later, there is a new full body shot of them just standing there; it looked very random and I'm glad it got cut......
mj says she is seeing someone and peter says "oh, therapy"....
When mj walks away at the end of the scene, there is an extra shot of peter standing alone at the fence.........
^ this whole backyard sequence wasn't very impressive... you could tell what was new and what wasn't, because the final cut material looked different (it had a glossy-ness to it, so the other shots looked out of place).... I agree that this version was less awkward between the two of them, but it was so corny and poorly acted on mj's part... it didn't feel like the 'movie' her.

- right after this is a new shot of Peter driving home in his "scooter-thing" ... it shows him lock it up and then walk into the front door of his complex.

- there was a longer pause between harry's line: "see you in sweden" and otto's line "interesting fellow, your friend" (peter and otto wait for harry to leave)

- mr. ditkovich yelled more random foreign stuff when peter ran off... (this was when he had no pants on)

- the two criminals, during the play sequence, shouted a few more one-liners... there was also an extra shot of a police car being smashed (just a new angle, actually)....
As the criminals shot at spider-man, the whole "dodging bullets against a wall" shot went from about 1.5 seconds to 3 seconds.

- right after mj leaves the theater (after checking to see if peter is sitting across the street), there is a longer shot of the police cars approaching.

- peter has a "bigger" reaction to the height (in the scene where his powers start failing)

- peter has an extra line about his feelings for mj in the pay-phone sequence.

- when the pins go into otto's back during the demonstration, there is only a single shot of them going in, instead of a double...
he also has a slight struggle when using them at first... (it takes about two seconds longer for them to start working)

- there was a shot of the demonstration's machine where it had a bright blue base... not sure if this is new or not, but I never noticed it before.... perhaps an effect of the different saturation?

- harry looks over for peter when the demonstration starts to go wrong... only to find that he is not there...
the line "everybody clear the room!" is followed by that.... which is in a slightly different spot.

- right before the glass windows burst and kill otto's wife, there is an extra shot of what appears to be the machine pulling the windows with some kind of force...
there is another extra shot of otto reacting to this "force"

- when spider-man pulls the plugs on the demonstration machine, we see it in a lot more angles... about three.

- there was a "controversary" a while back about the hospital cross being red when it should really have been green, so it was changed..... well, this version had a red one though.... uh-oh!

- in the hospital scene, there was an extra two seconds of the tentacles holding people and the people struggling to get loose......... at the end of the scene, there was about an extra five seconds of hesitation before the final guy was smashed in the face... I kinda liked it more this way... it human-ized the arms a bit better.

- harry said an extra sentence before he slapped peter in the face... it wasn't anything amazing though, and I already forget it.

- when the car goes into the cafe, there is an extra shot of the car knocking the table (and everything on it) to the ground.


All of the new stuff was pretty much in the beginning... the second half of the movie was the same.

Spider-man 3 footage: the only shot that was new was a quick glimpse of sand-man turning his head around... nothing impressive.


from another post, the extended backyard conversation between peter and mj:
MJ: Hey

Pete: Hey. I saw your billboard on Bleaker.

MJ: Isn't it funny. I'm really kind of embarrased.

Pete: Don't be. It's nice. I get to see you everyday now.

MJ: The photographer liked my face. I was only supposed to be in the catalog. Then I got the part in the play. Everything at once.

Pete: Your dream came true.

MJ: How about yours?

Pete: I'm......fine.

MJ: I wish you'd come see the play. You're the one who always encouraged me.

Pete: I plan to. *long pause*

MJ: I liked seeing you tonight Peter.

Pete: Oh boy yeah.

MJ: Oh boy yeah what?

Pete: Nothing.

MJ: I know the feeling. Sometimes you wanna say something but it won't come out.......You wanna say something?

Pete: I....was.... wondering....if you're still... in the village.

MJ: You're such a mystery. *touches Peter's face*

MJ: Peter

Pete: What?

MJ: ...........Happy Birthday.

MJ: I'm seeing somebody now.

Pete: Oh......Therapy

MJ: No a person, a man.

Pete: You mean, like like a boyfriend.

MJ: I mean, like, I like him. What?

Pete: Nothing. *ahem* That's good....you know...companionship

MJ: It maybe more than that.

Pete: More?

MJ: I don't know.

Pete: Hey, I'm gonna come see your play tomorrow night.

MJ: Your...your coming?

Pete: I'll be there.

MJ: Don't disappoint me.

Pete: I won't.

I just edited my previous post with descriptions of the scene. People who saw it were very disappoited that nothing major was added.

Wow. Absolutely nothing worthy of an archival project. What a shame.

DVD Town announced that this version will be released in April on DVD.

Indeed. Still I wonder if the DVD will have any other new footage that was not in the tv broadcast, like the apartment fight...

No, it won't Sam Raimi always said openly, that there are only a few things extended, nothing additional was really added, and his thoughts are that this is only for the studio to milk the fans. Sam Raimi doesn't like this version.

That's too bad. I might buy this DVD when it becomes a cheapie, instead of buying it immediately when it's released for a high price.

What's Different In The Spider-Man 2 Special Edition?
When the Spider-Man 2 special edition comes to DVD - I already speculated that this would be in April, though nothing has been officially announced yet - there will be a whole raft of new material, recut scenes and alternate takes. 'Webhead' has been able to compile all of the differences and sent them to film ick.

Peter's Birthday Party is slightly extended.
Peter and Mary Jane's backyard conversation is slightly extended.
Spider-Man's awkward converation in the elevator is now made up from completely different takes.
Mary Jane and Louise's conversation in the shoe store is a new addition.
Peter's visit to the campus doctor is slightly extended.
Jameson is seen trying on the Spider-Man suit.
The Battle between Doc Ock and Spider-Man after the bank robbery has a new scene added - a fight in an office.
The train sequence has a small addition during Doc Ock and Spider-Man battle on top of the train.


All of this adds up to around 8 minutes of additional footage. It's not yet clear which new extras will be on this DVD release, but something tells me they'll add up to one of the best, most satisfying double dips yet."


Will the DVD be different than the broadcasted version, or is this just some fanboy's dream idea?

Same Make. Same Model. New Mission.

On a somewhat separate note, when Spider-Man 3 comes out on DVD (which will probably be sometime late this year or early 2008), I've got a bunch of promotional stuff for it. Did you know that the filmmakers changed the design of Venom from the pre-production trailer that was leaked? Anyway, if anyone ever wants this stuff, I've got the early (possibly with footage culled from a workprint or dailies) trailer, Comicon interviews and roundtables, and a crapload of images, feel free to shoot me a message.
