Columbia Pictures has announced a "road block" presentation across Viacom brands and on CBS on Thursday for the new trailer for Spider-Man 3.

The trailer, which runs two and a half minutes, will debut at approximately 10 p.m.

The television networks airing the new trailer include BET, CBS, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV, MTV2, Spike TV and VH1, with each supporting the event with custom promotions both on-air and online.

Immediately following the television premiere, a high-definition version of the trailer will be available exclusively on MTV Networks'

"The Spider-Man franchise appeals to audiences of all ages and we wanted to find a special partner that would reach Spidey fans everywhere," said Valerie Van Galder, President of Domestic Marketing for the Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group. "This is not only event television, but it's event online programming and Viacom and CBS have an umbrella of world renowned brands that were a perfect match for our movie online, on cable and on network television. We couldn't be more excited to launch this new Spider-Man 3 trailer in this innovative way."

Columbia also provided the following synopsis of the film:

"In Spider-Man 3, based on the legendary Marvel Comics series, Peter Parker has finally managed to strike a balance between his devotion to M.J. and his duties as a superhero. But there is a storm brewing on the horizon. As Spider-Man basks in the public's adulation for his accomplishments, Peter becomes overconfident and starts to neglect the people who care about him most. His newfound self-assuredness is jeopardized when he faces the battle of his life against two of the most feared villains ever, Sandman and Venom, whose unparalleled power and thirst for retribution threaten Peter and everyone he loves."


NBC on Wednesday announced that Jack Coleman -- who plays H.R.G., aka Horn Rimmed Glasses -- is now a regular cast member of NBC¹s Heroes, the season's top-rated new television series.

"Even when I got the pilot script, Heroes already had a tremendous buzz behind it in the industry," said Coleman, who played Steven Carrington on Dynasty. "There was all kinds of potential for espionage and intrigue. And as soon as I saw myself put on the giant horn-rimmed glasses, it was very scary -- I looked like my dad, circa 1968.

"I see my character as someone who could be either good or bad, but definitely creepy. That's the operative word. He's a guy caught out of time, like a refugee from the Cold War in the 1950s. H.R.G.'s default position is to plot ­ he doesn't know any other way."

Coleman praised the work of creator-executive producer Tim Kring and his creative staff.

"They've made H.R.G. even scarier since he loves his daughter (cheerleader Claire, played by Hayden Panettiere) and his family, and thinks he's doing everything for the greater good," he said. "Every time he goes too far in one direction, they bring him back to the other direction. They've woven a rich tapestry and the show creates insatiable hunger for answers that form the journey.

"It seems H.R.G. is the only one to have tentacles into so many other characters, but he might be biting off more than he can chew. And the ultimate question is -- who does he take orders from?"
