– Why that new cut of Avengers: Endgame coming to theaters isn’t as
exciting as you think it is. Looking at movie ticket
sales, it’s not a lie to proclaim that this
is the summer of Disney. In fact, you might as well
nickname the box office the House of Mouse. Between Avengers: Endgame, Aladdin, Dumbo, as well as the upcoming
Toy Story 4 and Lion King, there won’t be a week that’s gone by without at least one Disney
property in theaters. But despite all its offering, it’s really been Avengers: Endgame that has been leading the charge. On top of raking in huge
amounts of dollar bills, it’s also been the water
cooler talk of the summer, drawing together the hardcore fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as the casual observers resulting in an eruption of tears
that hasn’t been seen since Disney’s Up. (somber music) Sorry about that. In fact, while Avengers:
Endgame is still in theaters at the moment, that’s not
stopping Kevin Feige and company from keeping up the full court press. In an interview with Feige
for Spider-man: Far From Home, the folks over at Comicbook.com
got a delicious tidbit about how Marvel is planning
to rerelease Avengers: Endgame in theaters with additional footage. “We are doing that,” said Feige. “I don’t know if it’s been announced, “and I don’t know how much. “Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.” Holy hell! A new cut, are you kidding? That’s awesome, right? Well, maybe not. There is a bit of a catch to
the whole extra footage thing. In fact, it was the
cats over at Screen Rant who got some clarification on the whole rerelease from Feige. “Not an extended cut, but
there will be a version “going into theaters with
a bit of a marketing push “with a few new things
at the end of the movie. “If you stay and watch the
movie, after the credits, “there will be a deleted
scene, a little tribute, “and a few surprises.” A deleted scene. A little tribute. And a few surprises. After the credits.
– Yeah. – Yes?
– No. – No offense, but what the (bleep)? This isn’t even a director’s cut? They’re not even adding the deleted scene into the movie itself? It’s literally just
scenes added onto the end after the credits roll? Not gonna lie, this sounds like Blu-ray bonus features to us. So why would Feige and Marvel do this? Why would he put Avengers:
Endgame back into theaters, and potentially put
the film in competition with other flicks that
would also be in theaters, like Toy Story 4 and
Spider-man: Far From Home? Well, while Avengers:
Endgame has literally made billions of dollars
at the box office, there’s a little film
you may have heard of still holding the number
one spot of all time. Avatar.
(creature hisses) – My only curse is you.
– With Endgame sitting at 2.743 billion dollars
in worldwide receipts, it’s currently behind James
Cameron’s 3D spectacle by about 45 million. One might say that the box office record is Kevin Feige’s own personal unobtainium. Avatar has held the honor since 2009 and recently went back to theaters to nab another 10 million dollars. It’s clear there’s a
bit of a thing going on between Feige and
Cameron, and to be honest, it feels like this whole
rerelease with new footage is clearly a ploy to push
Endgame over the edge and make it the biggest movie of all time. And hey, we get it. Being the best is cool. – I’m the best.
(metal dings) – Of course, it is worth noting that now that Disney owns Fox,
who distributed Avatar, no matter who loses this Titanic match up, Disney ultimately wins. Nonetheless, is seeing the rerelease of Avengers: Endgame worth it, maybe. If you wanna see the film on
the big screen one last time before its home release, then yes. It’s definitely worth it,
but on the other hand, if you were expecting a whole new cut or even new scenes just added in, maybe you should wait and just pick it up on Blu-ray or digital. While we can’t say for certain
that a few new surprises won’t be something awesome, it’s safe to say the deleted scene and tributes will be available as bonus features. Either way, it will be interesting to see if the extra footage
will entice fans enough to help push Endgame past Avatar as the number one movie of all time. But what do you folks think? Are you going to see
Avengers: Endgame again? How many times have you seen it, and do you think Kevin Feige
has an Infinity Gauntlet, but all of the stones have been inscribed with the records of
Avengers: Endgame has broken? – There’s a chance.
– There’s always a chance. – There’s always a chance.
