SYNOPSIS

Released in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the web-slinger’s first appearance in a comic book, Spider-Man centers on student Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) who, after being bitten by a genetically-altered spider, gains superhuman strength and the spider-like ability to cling to any surface. 

He vows to use his abilities to fight crime, coming to understand the words of his beloved Uncle Ben: “With great power comes great responsibility.” 

Directed by Sam Raimi, the film also stars Willem Dafoe as Spider-Man’s nemesis the Green Goblin, Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson, James Franco as Peter’s pal Harry Osborn, Cliff Robertson as Uncle Ben, Rosemary Harris as Aunt May and J.K.
