Check Out the First Three Minutes of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Before Friday’s Release

“Hi? Do I know you?” a flummoxed Tom Holland asks soon-to-be just-as mixed-up Doc Ock at the beginning of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The most anticipated Spider-Man film in the series comes out tomorrow. Before the film drops, check out the first three minutes, released on Monday on YouTube. If the tense opening hook and a promising first look carry any weight, No Way Home is going to be great. 

After the mix-up with Doc Ock, the film flips to ‘Early That Day’ when Parker’s wish to be a forgotten web-slinger goes very awry. Before fans can place too much blame on Holland-as-Parker, this Spider-Man seems to have had his hand forced. For the first time in Spidey’s cinematic history, the neighborhood hero who is just trying to maintain a normal life is unmasked. J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson, editor-in-chief of the fictional Daily Bugle, appears on national television and the Times Square big screen, revealing the identity of his nemesis like an old school carnival barker. 

“That’s right folks, Spider-Man is in fact, Peter Parker,” Jameson says. “People who looked up to this boy and called him a hero. Well, I’ll tell you what I call him: Public enemy number one!”

Just as Parker feared, Spidey’s responsibilities are brought into stark conflict with his normal life, placing those he cares about most in danger. After ignoring a clear warning not to cast Doctor Strange’s spell to make everybody forget Parker is Spider-Man, the multiverse tears when an indecisive Parker can’t stop messing with it.

Instead of creating anonymity, the enchantment backfires, pulling Parker and Spider-Man’s friends, families, and enemies in from alternate universes. This includes the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), and others. In case you’ve already taken the next logical step, yes, this means other Spider-Men will follow. 

After months of speculation, it’s been confirmed that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprise their roles as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in No Way Home and it’s every bit as glorious as people could have hoped. (Regrettably, this doesn’t include Spider-Ham like it did in Into the Spider-Verse.)

So far, critical reviews are almost universally positive. BBC Culture gave No Way Home five stars while praising the depth it brings to all Spider-Men and his/their archenemies. The film earned a 95% ‘Certified Fresh’ rating on with papers from coast to coast, such as the San Francisco Chronicle, the Chicago Tribune, and The Washington Post, all lauding the film for its focus on character development.

Spider-Man: No Way Home opens in theaters nationwide tomorrow. To get a taste of the film’s plot and characters, make sure to check out its first few minutes.

Incredible video shows how hard it is for MLB players to actually hit a baseball
There's a lot of physics involved
baseball on pitchers mound

Playing any sport at a high level comes with the kinds of challenges that very few people are capable of meeting. That's why athletes get paid so well — they're capable of doing things that the average person simply can't. Among all the incredible feats that athletes accomplish, though, one of the most astonishing happens every time a batter steps up to the mound to try and hit a ball in the MLB.

Even the best hitters in baseball only successfully record a hit on two of every five of their mound appearances, and that's because hitting a ball well requires incredible precision. The video below, which was created by Business Insider, shows just how little room for error a batter has when they're about to take a swing at a pitch.

Google Maps has long been a dominant player in navigation, known for its comprehensive data and ease of use. However, with the release of iOS 17, Apple has introduced a game-changing feature that's set to make Apple Maps the go-to choice for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers. Apple is finally introducing offline maps, and it's a feature that will revolutionize the way hikers, campers, skiers, and snowboarders navigate the great outdoors.
iOS 17 unveils offline maps for Apple Maps
Apple Maps has come a long way since its initial launch, and it's continually striving to offer users a more robust and feature-rich experience. With the launch of iOS 17 on September 18, 2023, Apple is introducing offline maps, a feature that will be a game-changer for those who love outdoor activities.

Offline maps allow users to select specific areas to download to their phones. Once downloaded, these maps can be accessed and used without an internet connection. This makes it possible to enjoy turn-by-turn navigation and conduct searches even in remote areas where internet connectivity may be unreliable or nonexistent. It works similarly to Google Maps in the sense that you do need a WiFi connection to download the maps, but after that, you're good to go off the grid.
The perfect companion for outdoor adventures
For outdoor enthusiasts, this feature is a dream come true. Whether you're hiking in the wilderness, camping in a remote location, skiing down the slopes, or snowboarding in the mountains, having access to offline maps can be a lifesaver. Here's how this feature can benefit different adventure seekers:
