• People worried that Tobey Maguire wasn’t a big enough star to take on the role of the webbed wonder. Box-office receipts of $150million in just 7 days proved his doubters wrong. Read what Maguire had to say, the thoughts of director Sam Raimi and (in print) his co-stars as we cover possibly the biggest movie of the summer

Quick Film Fixes

• There’s also a quick peek at the forthcoming remake of Rollerball with American Pie star Chris Klein.
• And finally… the critics pretty much hated it (see our fairly scathing review), but Snow Dogs has given Cuba Gooding Jr’s movie career a kick in the snowpants… and your kids will love it!
