'Spider-Man 2' headed for DVD, just in time for Christmas



LOS ANGELES -- The comic book-inspired blockbuster "Spider-Man 2" will debut on DVD on Nov. 30 in a two-disc set with about 10 hours of extra features, Columbia Tri-Star Home Entertainment announced Friday.

The film has collected $363 million since it's July debut and ranks as the third highest-grossing movie of the year, behind "Shrek 2" at No. 1 and "The Passion of the Christ" at No. 2.

Among the extra features will be a 12-part documentary on the making of "Spider-Man 2," a multi-angle feature that shows the climactic pier battle from various perspectives, and a blooper reel.

A separate collectible set containing the "Spider-Man 2" widescreen DVD will also include a postcard collection of movie artwork, a 25-page comic book artists' portfolio, and a reprint of the Marvel comic book, "The Amazing Spider-Man", titled "Spider-Man No More," on which the movie was partially based.

The film stars Tobey Maguire as the web-slinging hero and Alfred Molina as eight-armed enemy Doctor Octopus.
