Tom Holland issues a maybe first of its kind warning at the start of this new trailer for Columbia Pictures’ Spider-Man: Far From Home. The warning? Don’t watch.
At least, don’t watch if you haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame, since, he says, the Spider-Man trailer contains spoilers. So with that in mind, this post comes with the same warning – Don’t watch the trailer if you don’t want spoilers.
The official trailer dropped this morning courtesy of Sony Pictures Entertainment. I’ll keep to the official no-spoiler synopsis:
“Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.”
Couple non-spoilery observations: The trailer description notes the use of the Ramones punk classic “I Wanna Be Sedated,” but you’ll have to listen pretty hard to pick it up. More obvious is an instrumental version of the Spider-Man cartoon theme song from the ’60s (..”does whatever a spider can”).
The last Spidey trailer – a teaser, to be accurate – scored 130 million views in its first 24 hours. Guessing even a warning from Tom Holland won’t slow this one down much.
Far From Home hits theaters on July 2. Tom Holland returns in the title role. Jon Watts directs from the script from Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal produced the film. The cast also includes Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Colbie Smulders as Maria Hill, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes, Zendaya as Michelle Jones, Laura Harrier as Liz, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson and Jacob Batalon as Ned. The cast will also include JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm).
Like the teaser, the new trailer shows Peter Parker taking off to Europe with his classmates for a much needed vacation, a plan that falls apart when spymaster Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) recruits the young traveler to fight monsters on the loose in Europe. The trailer also introduces Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, a character whose motivations are as enigmatic as his name.
Also today, IMAX announced that Spider-Man: Far From Home will feature select sequences specially formatted for IMAX theaters. That means, says the company, that IMAX viewers will see “26% more picture from your friendly neighborhood superhero…”
