12 Minutes of Spider-Man 2 Screened in Tokyo

Variety reports that Columbia Pictures screened 12 minutes of Spider-Man 2 footage for the first time in Tokyo, Japan on Monday with star Tobey Maguire in attendance…

Several hundred journalists and film industry guests crowded the ballroom at a Tokyo hotel to watch the “Director’s Preview,” as it was labeled.

Trailer on a master brought over from Los Angeles started with a video message by helmer Sam Raimi welcoming the Japanese guests, partly in their own language, and explaining that some of the CG and sound wasn’t complete.

The sequel opens in Japan on July 4th and here on July 2nd.
