Aug. 20 (UPI) — “Spider-Man: Far From Home” will be re-released in theaters in time for Labor Day with 4 minutes of new footage, Sony announced.
The new footage will contain a never-before-seen action sequence. The film will be re-released on Aug. 29 ahead of Labor Day weekend and will be available to view in IMAX and other large-screen formats at select locations.
“Spider-Man: Far From Home” is the latest Marvel film to be re-released in theaters following “Avengers: Endgame.” The crossover film was placed back into theaters in June with a deleted scene, a tribute to late Marvel comic book writer Stan Lee and a sneak peak of “Far From Home.”
“Spider-Man: Far From Home” stars Tom Holland as the iconic webslinger as he takes on Jake Gyllenhaal’s villainous Mysterio. Zendaya (MJ), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jacob Batalon (Ned), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May) and Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan) also star.
The film, which acts as a sequel to 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” has become Sony’s highest- grossing film ever, earning $1.109 billion worldwide. It surpassed Sony’s previous record-holder, the James Bond film “Skyfall,” which earned $1.108 billion globally.
