MySpace to Present Exclusive "Spider-Man 3" Screening

MySpace announced this week the Black Curtain Screening of "Spider-Man 3," taking place on April 30, 2007, a week before the film opens nationally, and in a location to be determined by MySpace Spidey fans. Users will be able to choose from one of ten cities to host the "Spider-Man 3" event, which will be free and accessible exclusively by MySpace members. The neighborhoods in play are:

  • Cleveland, OH
  • Cincinnati, OH
  • Honolulu, HI
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Louisville, KY
  • Salt Lake City, UT
  • San Jose, CA
  • Savannah, GA
  • Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL

The Black Curtain Screening of "Spider-Man 3" comes shortly after that of "300," which is also based on a comic book. For that event, MySpace screened the film in three US cities, drawing thousands of "300" fans, and gave away specially branded copies of Dark Horse's "300: The Art of the Film." Director Zack Snyder prepared just for the events a filmed introduction and behind-the-scenes feature which ran before the film.

MySpace's screenings of comics-inspired films follow the launching of MySpace Comic Books, an interactive community for comics fans and creators which features news, contests, exclusives and other special features like user-generated comics. The interactive community promises to amplify the profiles of comic books, graphic novels and manga with exposure to MySpace's audience of millions. For February's New York Comic Con, MySpace hosted for fans an intimate "mystery" panel featuring the unannounced guests Jim Lee, Garth Ennis and Steve Niles.
