New Delhi, March 12: Awaited Hollywood film "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will release Indian screens May 2, a day before it hits theatres in the US.
The movie will release here in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu; it will be available to view in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
"The release date will take advantage of the fact that most states have a public holiday May 1," Kercy Daruwala, managing director, Sony Pictures India, said in a statement.
"As it is, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' releases during the opportune school and college vacation period which is ideal for our audience," he added.
"The Spider-Man" franchise is said to have garnered a larger box office than any other Hollywood franchise in India. "The Amazing Spider-Man" had minted Rs.34 crore during its weekend opening when it released in 2012.
In the first movie, the movie showcased the struggle between the ordinary obligations of actor Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man.
But in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter confronts a foe far more powerful than him. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter realises that all of his enemies have one thing in common.
