Spider-Man: Far From Home was a breezy, summer follow-up to the severity of Avengers: Endgame. Sony will re-release Far From Home in theaters in the United States and Canada with an additional four-minute-long action sequence on Thursday, Aug. 29. The new cut will be available in IMAX and large formats at select locations.

This isn’t the first time MCU films have gotten a re-release with additional footage: Endgame was the latest to get the treatment in June with the addition of a tribute and bonus scene at the end of the film. While additional content usually isn’t much consequence to the overall story, other parts of Far From Home (like its doozy of a post-credit scene) merit a second watch. The extended cut is a great excuse to take another pass at the film.

It’s not known exactly where the new sequence will fit into the film, although the visual spectacle of Spider-Man and Mysterio’s battles with the Elemental monsters seem ripe for extension. Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Marisa Tomei, and Jon Favreau, and is directed by Jon Watts.
