CJ 4DPLEX, together with Sony Pictures, announced today "Spider-Man: Far From Home" will be released in the 270-degree panoramic ScreenX format, swinging into theaters around the globe beginning July 2nd.

"Spider-Man: Far From Home" marks the first Sony Pictures film to be converted into ScreenX. Past collaborations between CJ 4DPLEX and Sony Pictures include the Academy Award winning animated feature "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" in 4DX - another immersive cinema technology of CJ 4DPLEX that features motion-based seating accompanied by a range of environmental effects. 

  • In addition to ScreenX, "Spider-Man: Far From Home" will also be available in the multi-sensory 4DX format.
"We are very excited to share Spider-Man: Far From Home with audiences around the world and have them experience the anticipated film expanded onto the side walls of the ScreenX auditorium," said JongRyul Kim, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX. "Fans will be blown away by the immersive and visual experience of ScreenX and we look forward to bringing more of these exciting cinematic experiences to audiences in the future with Sony Pictures."
"We couldn't be happier in expanding our partnership with CJ 4DPLEX to bring Spider-Man: Far From Home to audiences worldwide in the innovative ScreenX format," said Scott Sherr, EVP, WW Theatrical Distribution of Sony Pictures. "We trust the capabilities of ScreenX to offer an incredibly creative and immersive visual boost to the journey of Spider-Man, and we look forward to entertaining audiences through this unique and exciting cinematic technology."
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" in the ScreenX format will have Spider-Man swinging through the cobbled streets and rustic building tops of Europe, battling foes and juggling the day-time struggles of being a high school teenager. 

Audiences will experience Spider-Man in an all-new environment inside the auditorium where sequences of Spider-Man swinging from building to building will be expanded onto the side walls of the theater, giving the audiences the thrill of seeing Spider-Man flashing through the air from all three screens. 

  • Fight sequences will also be extended, offering a unique viewing perspective on the action that plays out on the panoramic screens.
