Just days ago, the brand new “Spider-Man: Far From Home” trailer arrived online to much fanfare. The new movie trailer gives viewers a look at how the world looks after the events and consequences in “Avengers: Endgame.” It also broke Sony Pictures’ record for views of a digital launch.
According to a Deadline report, the new film trailer had 135 million views in just a 24-hour time period. It broke the previous record set by its previous trailer. In January, the “Far From Home” teaser trailer racked up 130 million views. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sits third on the list with 116 million views. The first Sony/Marvel Spider-Man collaborative effort took in $334.2 million in domestic box office revenue. It also collected $880.1 million worldwide.
The all-time Hollywood trailer launch record still goes to Spider-Man’s superhero crew, the Avengers. “Endgame” tallied a whopping 289 million views in just 24 hours. “Avengers: Infinity War” had 236 million, followed by “The Lion King” with 224.6 million. Two of those movies have gone on to achieve big success, while the third is likely to do the same.
The new Spidey trailer piqued interest from moviegoers who witnessed the hugely successful “Avengers: Endgame” as they wanted to see new tidbits of what to expect from future Marvel films. Lead actor Tom Holland prefaced the new Spider-Man trailer with a message for fans who have yet to see “Endgame,” warning of potential spoilers.
Based on trailers and plot synopsis information, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” will feature Peter Parker dealing with the aftermath of those “Endgame” events. Along the way, he’ll run into a classic villain from the Spider-Man comics, Mysterio. However, the character in this movie, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, will team with Spider-Man to take on world threats.
Also amongst the cast of the new film will be Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, and Jon Favreau as Happy, the head of Stark Industries security. The new film “Spider-Man: Far From Home” arrives into U.S. theaters in 3D and IMAX on July 2, 2019.
