Not long ago Avengers: Endgame was screened in cinemas across the US and the UK, along with six minutes of additional footage. This helped it overtake Avatar [inflation not counted of course] as the highest-grossing movie of all time. It seems that these Marvel movies are so popular at the moment that people will return to see them at the cinema even if the amount of unseen footage is measly considering the overall running time. So to celebrate Spider-Man: Far From Home becoming Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing film, the studio is gearing up to release an extended cut in cinemas on 31st August. So far it’s only in the US and Canada – but I’d be very surprised if it didn’t come out in the UK too.
The never before seen scene will be a four minute action sequence. While I rather liked Far From Home, I’m not sure that’s enough of an enticement to pay for a return visit to the cinema to see it – though I’m no doubt in the minority.
