After the much published split from Disney / Marvel, Sony announced a re-release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, with, depending on the source, had four to seven minutes of new footage integrated into the movie. Sounded good to me, or at least better than the re-release of Avengers: Endgame, which had a short, unfinished deleted scene after the credits.
I posted about wanting to go on my Facebook page, and a friend of mine hashtagged it “CashGrab.” I told him I’d already spent over a hundred dollars on tickets for Spider-Man since it came out in July, so it wouldn’t bother me if I could use my AMC Stubs to see the re-release.
Fortunately, it played for a week at AMC Lufkin, and I was able to go & see it.
So, added stuff!
Peter & Ned talking about Peter’s afternoon plans on the last day of school, with Flash in the background cleaning out his locker.
Peter using a spider gizmo to cut in line while picking up his passport.
Peter at the restored bodega from Spider-Man: Homecoming, getting stuff for his trip.
Peter at a secondhand store selling off action figures, presumably to get the money for MJ’s gift while on the trip to Europe.
Iron Spider-Man versus the bad guys in the restaurant before Aunt May’s Blip fundraiser. Part of this fight scene was in the second trailer that came out, where Spider-Man told the police he was going on vacation.
All that is set before the trip to Europe.
And then there is an added scene in London, before Mysterio’s final attack, where he sets up folks to film it for social media, and triggers the surge that gets Fury to call him about it. I think that could have remained deleted from the movie, its a little too evil villain-y.
Honestly, I really liked this movie, and the extended cut was a nice excuse to see it at the theater again, after having watched it in 2D, 3D & IMAX during its initial release.
It was also the second time I had a theater to myself for a viewing, the first was when I went out to AMC Tyler for the last IMAX showing. So, two times 100% of the audience stayed for the mid & end credit bonus scenes. And I love that mid credit bonus.
