Last week came the news that Marvel Studios are set to re-release “Avengers: Endgame” this coming weekend, a re-release with some extra footage in tow.
The reasoning behind it is simple – bragging rights. ‘Endgame’ currently sits only $38 million behind “Avatar” as the biggest worldwide box-office hit of all time. The hope of the re-release is it’ll earn enough to push the total above the James Cameron epic.
It’s not an unfair challenge, “Avatar” famously had its own similar re-release a few months after its original run, that version incorporated nearly half an hour of new footage into it to try and convince people to get back into cinemas to see it.
Details have now emerged about the ‘Endgame’ re-release and… don’t expect anything even close to what “Avatar” did in terms of extra material. CBM reports that the film itself won’t include any additional scenes.
Instead, the new content comes after the credits – namely a deleted scene that revolves around The Hulk. Some showings will also include an introduction by directors Joe and Anthony Russo, a Stan Lee tribute and a “Spider-Man: Far From Home” trailer – even though that film is out just a few days later. There’s also a collectible poster (seen below) while stocks last.
‘Endgame’ was on 985 screens last weekend with this ‘re-release’ push expected to get it back up to 1,500 screens at least. “Avengers: Endgame” will be available in Digital HD from July 30th and on disc sometime in August.
