"Spider-Man 2" will hit theaters June 30, two days earlier than scheduled, said Jeff Blake, vice chairman of Sony Studios. That gives the movie a two-day head start on the Fourth of July weekend, one of the busiest times of the year at theaters. The announcement this week at theater owners' annual ShoWest convention came with more good news: A third installment of "Spider-Man" is due in 2007. Starring Tobey Maguire as the masked do-gooder, "Spider-Man" had a record $114.
