In "Spider-Man 2," Tobey Maguire returns as the mild-mannered Peter Parker, who is juggling the delicate balance of his dual life as a college student and a superhuman crime-fighter. His life as Spider-Man becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the diabolically brilliant Otto Octavius (played by Alfred Molina), who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled "Doc Ock." "Spider-Man 2" is directed by Sam Raimi and stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst.

Based on the classic Marvel Comics hero, "Spider-Man 2," successor to 2002's record-breaking "Spider-Man," promises to be one of the major blockbuster hits of the year.

"Spider-Man" also set records with the biggest weekend, biggest single day, and biggest opening day. Released in April 2002, Spider-Man (Music From and Inspired By), the album of music from the first "Spider-Man" film, debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 bestselling albums chart, and became the #1 Top Soundtrack in America, selling more than 2 million copies worldwide.
