Grant Curtis - Welcome back
Grant CurtisDear friends,

After filming 100 plus days of photography, "Spider-Man 3" officially wrapped earlier this month. Our journey began with a quick 10-day shoot from Saturday, November 5, 2005, to Friday, November 18, 2005. This time period was dedicated to three visual effects intensive sequences so Sony Pictures Imageworks could begin working on some of the more complicated CGI components of the movie. We employed a similar tactic on "Spider-Man 2," shooting the Ock hospital sequence and a lot of the plates for the Spidey/Ock train battle prior to principal photography. Just as it did on number two, the results of this VFX pre-shoot are really paying off and SPI has been able to get a head start on some extremely complex sequences.

With this early shoot in the can, we continued prepping the movie until January 16, 2006 when the cameras began rolling for good on Stage 30 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA. The Los Angeles portion of our photography lasted until May 19, 2006, at which time we headed to New York. Manhattan was our gracious yet rain-filled host for 26 days of filming until 5:46 AM, July 1, 2006, when we filmed our final shot outside the New York public library as the sun was rising over the beautiful skyline.

So, now for the big question: what has transpired since the opening of "Spider-Man 2" and what do the next nine months hold in store? For the answers to these and many other questions, the good people at Sony asked me to reprise my role writing web logs and answering your questions just as I did on "Spider-Man 2." However, for "Spider-Man 3" the forum will not only include my blogs, but will also feature informative weekly video web logs that will keep our discussions fresh and new.

It's great to be back guys! I look forward to continuing our relationship as we explore what went into making the most exciting "Spider-Man" film to date.

Cheers,
Grant Curtis

Sam Raimi joined by Tobey Maguire, Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, Bryce Dallas Howard and Kirsten Dunst were on hand at Comic Con to give the fans a sneak peek of Spider-Man 3. The panel allowed the capacity crowd to ask questions of Sam and the cast about the upcoming film.

A lucky few contest winners were even able to meet Sam and the cast shortly after the panel. One of the winners happened to be the Sony Pictures Comic Con blogger Steve Zaragoza. Read all about Steve's encounter with Sam Raimi in his attempt to achieve a near impossible challenge.

Check back next week to watch clips from the Comic Con panel.
