How often are those extended versions at the cinema though?

 

Outside of things like Apocalypse Now Redux, where the extended cut came many years after the original, these are the only ones I can think of where a changed version was released in cinemas within a few months of the original:

 

* Avatar (the extended version was released in cinemas in 2010)

* Avengers Endgame (had an deleted scene with unfinished VFX added as a post-credit scene)

 

Also I think that LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring had a preview of The Two Towers added to it at some point, but I can't remember if that happened towards the end of its theatrical run, or was done as a separate re-release?

Yeah, I couldn't think of any examples outside of Avatar and Endgame.

 

I can't see the appeal, personally. My days of caring about what extras and things were bonus bits on the DVD/Bluray are long behind me - so extras I have to rewatch the whole film to see are even less appealing, especially as I didn't really like this film anyway. I do wonder how the sums work out for Sony though and how the cut will be split for, essentially, a re-release?

I got this for free with Sony’s latest attempt at a streaming service (Bravia), which comes in an Enhanced IMAX type of format to show off your new Sony XR Bravia OLED TV…

 

Anyway, I dunno, it was nice seeing the old faces back in this but outside of the old faces coming back, it felt really forgettable. The set pieces (including what felt like a rip off of the original X-Men’s final scene) were pretty underwhelming, the characters seemed to have almost no character at all. Maybe it’s highlighted by seeing especially Tobey Maguire, Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe. The Doctor Strange Multiverse section was OK, but Inception did it a million times better. 

 

I mean it was decent enough to kill a couple of hours, but the feeling afterwards was kind of like having a McDonalds meal. Absolutely no lasting memory or satisfaction at all.

I was thinking about the way they went to Venice and the bit on the coach with all the kids and the girl friends thing. 

 

Then realised that was the last, last film and we had another one with all the other spidermen in it. 

 

I'd completely forgotten about the new one. Which pretty much sums it up for me I think.

I didn’t know it wasn’t well liked. I haven’t seen it so bought it and don’t know how anyone would have seen it for less without pirating it.

 

I enjoyed it 🤷🏻‍♀️ enough to watch it twice at the cinema (which I don't think I've ever done before), just watch my best friends reactions to it.

Yeah I thought it was good fun. It was mainly fan service but this multiverse stuff was always going to be like that wasn't it?

 

It was worth watching just for Andrew Garfield, he was great.  "Spiderman 3 🤷‍♂️

Anybody seen the extended version? It’s a tenner now on streaming and apparently it has more

 

Spoiler

Matt Murdock 


in it, which I’d happily pay a few extra quid for. 
 

I’m nearing the end of full MCU rewatch incorporating all the ones I’ve missed over the last couple of years so thought I’d get this lined up as it’s not on D+ yet.
