Spider-Man 2 will make its broadcast network debut on Fox on Thursday, Nov. 23, the network announced on Monday morning.

The Thanksgiving Day telecast will run from 8-10:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Normally, Fox programming concludes at 10 p.m.

Here's how Fox describes the movie:

"Tobey Maguire returns as mild-mannered Peter Parker, who is struggling with the delicate balance of his dual roles as college student and superhuman crime-fighter. Peter's life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled 'Doc Ock.' When Dock Ock kidnaps Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst), Spider-Man must swing back into action and the adventure reaches new heights of excitement."
