Spider-Man: Far From Home to Get ScreenX 270-Degree Format Screenings
You’ll soon be able to watch Spider-Man swing into action like never before. The webhead’s upcoming outing, Spider-Man: Far From Home, will be Sony’s first film converted into the Screen X 270-degree format, per a report from Deadline. The fully immersive experience pushes past the boundaries of a conventional movie theater screen by projecting images on the theater’s side walls as well.
The film will be converted by CJ 4DPlex, who also worked with Sony on a 4DX conversion of last December’s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. 4DX uses augmented environmental effects to enhance the audience experience. In addition to Screen X, Spider-Man: Far From Home will also be getting a 4DX conversion. As of this month, Screen X is available in 214 auditoriums in 19 countries, and 21 auditoriums in the U.S.
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats. In a world (or worlds?) that has changed forever.
The Spider-Man: Far From Home cast includes Tom Holland as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, plus Zendaya as “MJ,” and Jacob Batalon as Ned. Marisa Tomei returns as Aunt May, and Jake Gyllenhaal will play Mysterio. New additions include comedian J.B. Smoove, and Numan Acar (Aladdin) as Dimitri. MCU veterans Samuel L. Jackson (Captain Marvel) and Cobie Smulders will also join Holland’s Spider-Man sequel as Nick Fury and Maria Hill, respectively.
Jon Watts directed Spider-Man: Far From Home, written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, all returning from Spider-Man: Homecoming. The movie swings into theaters on July 2.
