You Can Watch the Opening Scene of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Right Now
Sony knows that it’s summertime and in the summer traffic can be bad. So bad, even, that you might be running late to the movie theater and miss the first few minutes of Spider-Man: Homecoming this weekend. I personally have a rule that if I miss more than the first few minutes of a movie, I skip the whole thing for another showing. So in case you’re worried about missing the beginning of Homecoming because some jerk decided to hit the emergency break on the subway, have no fear. Sony just released the first four minutes of their new Spidey outing.
It goes without saying, but spoiler alert. The above clip shows the full opening scene from the latest Spider-Man reboot from director Jon Watts. After the new Marvel logo, the film jumps straight into a short film shot by Tom Holland’s Peter Parker on his phone. The sequence shows Peter documenting his trip to Germany where he debuted his new suit and fought alongside the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, then ends with an awkward hug-not-hug from Iron Man himself. It’s a fun way to kick off the movie and wastes no time introducing the playful sense of humor that defines much of the film, and is one of the most enjoyable things about Homecoming.
So if you can’t web-sling your way across the city in time for the movie when it hits theaters this Thursday, or if you need more time to get snacks at the concession stand, spoil yourself with the clip above. But if you do make it to the theater early and are lucky enough to be at select 3D and Large Premium Format showings, you’ll get to see another sneak peek at the opening scene to Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. There’s no better excuse to go to the movies (besides the free A/C).
