After Marvel Studios found success with sending Avengers: Endgame back to theaters, Sony Pictures may be following the same strategy with Spider-Man: Far From Home.
A new report suggests Spider-Man: Far From Home will land back in theaters later this month, with its second run also including extra deleted scenes originally cut from its theatrical release.
Discussing Film reports that the site confirmed the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming will be re-released to capitalize on the Labor Day weekend from August 30 to September 5. The theory is the re-release is planned to help the film cross $400 million at the domestic box office, similar to how Avengers: Endgame's re-release helped it break Avatar's record as the highest-grossing film of all time.
Whereas Avengers: Endgame only added one extra deleted scene in its re-release, Spider-Man: Far From Home is reportedly including multiple deleted scenes. Some of the possible scenes are Peter Parker's short film covering his passport adventure, the selling of his Star Wars toys and a fight with the mafia.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is expected to end the weekend as Sony's highest-grossing film ever, with projections putting it at approximately $1.109 billion worldwide, $376 million domestically and $733 million internationally.
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.
