TANGLED WEB

Sony is delaying the release of Spider-Man 2 from May 7, 2004, to July 2, 2004. The postponement has nothing to do with star Tobey Maguire's bad back, however. According to reports, the sequel got bumped after filming of Maguire's horse-racing drama Seabiscuit ran into February — a month after Spider-Man 2 hoped to begin production. Universal, meanwhile, wasted no time occupying the early May vacancy. The studio is moving its big-budget monster epic Van Helsing into the coveted May 7 slot. In the film, Hugh Jackman plays a vampire hunter who battles such classic creatures as Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, the Wolfman and Michael Moore.
