Sony Pictures has revealed Spider-Man: Far From Home will receive a re-release featuring footage not seen in the original theatrical cut, confirming reports from earlier this week. The second movie to come from Marvel Studios and Sony’s partnership, Spider-Man: Far From Home has been another big hit for all parties involved. The film had the difficult task of following up Avengers: Endgame and pushing the Marvel Cinematic Universe forward, and it managed to do that with some classic Spidey fun.
Sony officially confirmed the news today that Spider-Man: Far From Home will receive approximately four additional minutes of footage. The extended version of the film will start playing in theaters across the United States and Canada starting August 29, and will stay in theaters over Labor Day weekend. The new footage consists of a “never-before-seen action sequence,” and will be available to see in IMAX at select locations.
Far From Home is not the first Marvel movie this year to receive this treatment, as Avengers: Endgame also got a re-release, which helped push it past Avatar to become the highest-grossing film ever.
Far From Home has grossed over $1.109 billion worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing movie for Sony in the process. The critically acclaimed movie has earned $376.7 overseas domestically and $732.9 million overseas.
Director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is currently in theaters.
