Was there any doubt? Just in case you had any concerns about whether you’d be able to See The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in IMAX 3D next year, Sony has just confirmed that you will. If you’re one of the estimated ten percent of movie-goers that cannot physically watch 3D movies, you’re covered too. The film opens on May 2, 2014 in both 3D and 2D.
Can’t wait until May to get your Spider-Man fix? You can see an exclusive Amazing Spider-Man 2 clip and even meet Spider-Man on December 31 at the Times Square New Year’s Eve event.
Spider-Man will be making an appearance at the annual Ball Drop celebration as the “Official Super Hero of Times Square 2014“. Sony will be using the area’s iconic video screens to debut a scene from the sequel that actually takes place in Times Square. If you can’t make it to New York that night, a live webcast is taking place as well.
But that’s not enough, right? If you’re trekking all the way to Times Square on New Year’s Eve, you want more than Ryan Seacrest introducing a short clip of a movie scene that’ll soon be all over Youtube. Sony’s currently running a contest (NY, NJ, CT residents only) where you can meet Spider-Man on New Year’s Eve. Follow @SpiderManMovie and tweet #BeAmazingNYE daily through December 16th to enter. In case you don’t win or don’t live in those states, you can always wander around Times Square until you meet one of the Spider-Man street performers. They’re usually hanging out near three Elmos and a couple Hello Kitties.
