TERRY KEENAN, GUEST HOST: Well, "Spider-Man" may be long gone from the theaters, but he was off and swinging at the New York Stock Exchange (search). There you see him. Spidey closing the trading day to celebrate the release of Sony's blockbuster hit "Spider-Man 2," which arrives on DVD tomorrow.
Joining us from the New York Stock Exchange, it's not Spidey, but it is Benjamin Feingold (search). He is the president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
And Mr. Feingold, welcome. Good to have you with us.
BENJAMIN FEINGOLD, PRESIDENT, SONY PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT: Happy to be here.
KEENAN: What was — what was Spidey doing there? He was scaling the wall of the stock exchange?
FEINGOLD: Spidey descended from the ceiling of the stock exchange as we did the closing bell.
KEENAN: OK. And the "Spider-Man 2" DVD is coming out. What are your expectations here for Christmas sales?
FEINGOLD: It's perfectly positioned to be a great gift for the holidays and for Christmas. November 30 is four weeks into Christmas. It's a fantastic selling season.
And most important, we have a movie that has enormous critical acclaim as well as fantastic special effects, and 10 hours of extra stuff for consumers.
KEENAN: What are those extra hours? Because I know a lot of these DVD's, especially those aimed at children and the family, are starting to include all sorts of special features.
FEINGOLD: We certainly have them here. We have a lot of the making of the movie. We have webisodes, which are fantastic pieces, as well as lots of other, you know, sneak peeks and looking at the making of the movie.
It's — we spared no cost in bringing in a great two-disc set to consumers. And the movie is — the fantastic thing about the movie is it works on so many levels, from the story as well as the effects. Which is why we're very excited and think sales will be great.
KEENAN: Yes, and to your credit, I have to say that it is one of those rare sequels that got even better reviews than the original in most cases.
FEINGOLD: You know what? The writers and the actors and the director... just did a great job on the story.
And you know, a comic book movie can be two-dimensional. Ours is certainly three. And the story is where you first start when you make a movie. And the story was very human and wonderful here.
KEENAN: OK. Well, good luck and thanks for joining us. And thanks for bringing the Spider to the New York Stock Exchange today.
FEINGOLD: Thanks for having us. Bye-bye.
KEENAN: OK. Good to have you, Benjamin Feingold.
