A few days ago, news dropped that Avengers: Endgame would be getting a re-release on June 29, mere months after the film’s initial run. While this is quite obviously a stunt to boost Endgame‘s box office numbers (it’s still $US 37 million short of beating Avatar’s $US 2.788 billion all-time record), there’s no denying that the re-release has gotten a lot of the fans excited.
But what exactly do we know about this re-release and is it worth forking out an additional RM 16? I guess it doesn’t really matter to those of us who watch the same movie over and over again in cinemas anyway. But for those who are extra cautious about which movie you spend your money on, perhaps this breakdown might help you decide.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Avengers: Endgame re-release:
- It will include an introductory note by co-director Anthony Russo. This note will be played after all the commercials and trailers, directly before the movie starts.
- The Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer will play before the movie starts in the same slot as the rest of the trailers and commercials. The trailer will be played without Tom Holland’s spoiler warning, which tells us that Marvel is marketing the re-release towards people who have already watched Endgame at least once.
- There will be bonus content that plays after the credits. We’re not sure what exactly this bonus content is, but rumour has it that it’s a sneak peak at Spider-Man: Far From Home and/or an unfinished deleted scene.
- The film has a runtime of 190 minutes, which is approximately eight minutes longer than the original version. This does NOT mean that there will be eight glorious minutes of extra footage in the movie itself — this isn’t a director’s cut/extended edition type of scenario. It simply means that the bonus features, deleted scenes, etc will amount to about eight minutes.
Tickets have already gone on sale and are frankly already selling out quite fast. As much as I hate that it’s a box office stunt, there’s no denying that pairing it with Spider-Man: Far From Home could make for a great double feature. Damn. Did I just convince myself to watch it again?
