Unless you’re saddled with an unfortunate health or work excuse, have 21 films you need to watch or a general curmudgeon, there is a good chance you’re excited for Avengers: Endgame. That’s understandable as it’s only a handful of days away from the movie hitting theaters. And though we don’t know how this chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ends, we do know there are more films coming in the future. The nearest of which happens to be Spider-Man: Far From Home. Luckily, you’ll be waiting less time to see it, than initially expected.
According to Screen Rant, Sony Pictures and Marvel quietly (until everyone started reporting on it) has moved up the release date from July 5, to July 2. While that might not seem like a huge leap, it capitalizes on just how many people will be taking off extra work days, for the 4th of July. Time equals money and in this case equates to a big boom at the box office. For comparison, Spider-Man: Homecoming grossed $117 mill in it’s opening weekend. Which just so happened to be July 7, 2017. Gotta sneaking suspicion this one will blow that number out of the water, with a couple extra days in its back pocket.
Here’s the official synopsis, should you need a refresher:
“Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!”
There’s no telling where this film will fall in the ever-expanding MCU, but we do know everyone is glad to see the Web-head get another solo outing on the big screen. This time with a little less assistance from a certain man of iron. Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jake Gyllenhall, Jacob Batalon, Samuel L. Jackson, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei and Jon Favreau. Catch it, when it zips into theaters on July 2.
