Spider-Man: No Way Home to be re-webbed in theaters with new content
Spider-Man fans will get a special theatric re-release of the masked avenger’s latest installment, Spider-Man: No Way Home, with an extended cut. Titled Spider-Man: No Way Home: The More Fun Stuff, which is set to be launched ahead of the Labor Day Weekend and will be at first available in the US and Canada. For those living outside those countries, the release will come later.
The re-release is not only an appreciative nod to the fanbase but also to celebrate the Marvel comic- books’ 60th anniversary and twenty years of the Spider-Man movies. The first one premiered in 2002 and earned an impressive $100 million from its opening weekend.
In the new release, deleted scenes and unrevealed footage will be included, most likely surpassing the two-and-a-half-hour runtime.
Sony dropped the exciting news this past Friday on Twitter with a fourteen-second clip of the three Spider-Men: Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and the current Spider-Man, Tom Holland. The three appeared in No Way Home and famously recreated the “Spider-Man pointing” meme in a behind-the-scenes blooper reel.
Spider-Man: No Way Home became one of the record-breaking theater releases last December, with a revenue cap of $1.9 billion. As documented on Box Office Mojo, it also gained status as the sixth-grossing film ever internationally. Titanic, Avatar, Avengers, and Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens remain ahead.
Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Zedaya (MJ), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange), and Alfred Molina (Dr. Otto Octavious/Doc Ock), Spider-Man turns to Dr. Strange for guidance after his identity has been unveiled. Consequently, he faces the franchise’s past villains, who want to shatter the world. During this tumultuous course, Spider-Man realizes the significance of his heroship and self-worth.
Spider-Man: No Way Home: The More Fun Stuff will hit theaters Friday, September 2nd, with ticket sales beginning August 9th.
