Amazing Spiderman to have largest Hollywood release in India

NEW DELHI: The Amazing Spiderman, one of the few films from Hollywood that is being released in India on 29 June prior to its international release on 4 July, will open with over 1000 prints which is the largest ever release for a Hollywood film in the country.


The film will release in 3D, 2D and IMAX formats, and in four languages – English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.


Sony Pictures Managing Director Kercy Daruwala said: “The Amazing Spider-Man is fittingly our biggest release ever in the country. The fact that Spider-Man is the most consistently successful movie franchise in India combined with an increased audience in dubbed versions, growth of 3D, the pre-US release date and a local connect in the film, has led to a record demand for prints.”


The Motion Picture Distributors Association India, the Indian arm of the Motion Picture Association (MPA) representing the six major Hollywood studios, is beefing up its enforcement action across the country in preparation for the release.


MPDA (India) managing director Uday Singh said, “With every big film release comes the threat of Content Theft through Camcording in cinemas and movie downloads through illegal websites. We have chalked out a strong enforcement action plan to keep Camcording pirates at bay and urge movie loving audiences to watch The Amazing Spider-Man at the nearest theatre.”


One of the world’s most popular comic characters, the Spiderman is back with an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker tale. The new film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, and India’s Irrfan Khan with Martin Sheen and Sally Field.


The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures.
