And who's going to pay to see a deleted scene that they couldn't bother spending money to finish? Especially when I've already purchased it on disc? 

I'll see FFH in a few weeks probably. And there's a big internet out there filled with Anthony Russo's voice that I don't seek out. 

Pass.

People who were already on the fence about seeing it again, maybe.

Yeah, it feels pretty half assed.

At least Avatar's second run was an actual extended edition of the movie.

i'm going to see this "extended" version for two reasons:

1-i wanted to, but never got around to seeing it a second time

2-to see it break avatar's record

As it turns out, it is coming out this weekend. Both of my local cinemas are only doing one screening a day, at 8 or 8:30 at night.

August something.  Will be available Digitally on July 30th, so probably real close to then.

August 13th is the official physical release date.

What's maybe a little wild is how short the legs on this is.

 

Keep in mind, Captain Marvel? Still in theaters. Endgame's 8th week did about what CM's 10th did. Obviously there was a lot more front end to it but it definitely seems like a film that a lot of people made a point of seeing to wrap it up or just as a cultural thing and isn't getting the same kind of repeat love that a lot of others get.

 

Which, I work at a comic store and given the majority of the response has been "Yeah, it was an adequate wrap up." so maybe it's not the biggest shock that it's not engendering as many repeats as some others do. Especially since one of the big things people talk about related to it is the time commitment.

They should have released a new version with new footage but trimmed some of the fat. (No offense, thor)

CM also wasn't competing with summer blockbusters though.

Box Office Mojo is anticipating 2.4 million for the Avengers stunt. Even if it does 3 times that internationally, that doesn't get it anywhere near the 36-37 Million it still needs.

I'd hardly call it light competition. Us, Dumbo, Shazam, and Pet Semetary all dropped within a month of its release. Endgame has had slightly heavier competition, but CM held out at higher levels while competing with some of the same stuff and Endgame itself.

Pet Semetary was a small film, and Dumbo was a bomb.  I wouldn’t consider either to be genuine competition for CM.

This isn't an extended cut of Endgame. It's the same movie. They are just presenting it with a few special extras. Like when there's an anime premiere from Fathom Events, they will give it some cool intros or BTS features for the presentation. 

It's like when Fellowship of the Ring got an extra trailer for the Two Towers after a few months. So if you waited after the credits, you could watch the first trailer for Two Towers after the film. Remember at the time, the movie was a phenomenon and capturing the imagination of the fans. I definitely got in on it. The cut of Fellowship was exactly the same, it just tacked on an extra trailer post-credits. 

Granted the extended DVD cuts eventually did get limited theatrical releases, but that's a totally separate thing.

It did $5.5 domestic for the weekend, if you are curious.

Something is wrong on BOM with it's international numbers right now, but I assume they aren't out for the weekend yet anyway.

Looks like they are still recalculating overseas numbers.

Yeah, it's just funny, when I checked it said it's made $1.9 million foreign in it's entire run.

Still a little under 27 million away from Avatar.

I think they'd have to do an actual extended edition to get there.

Well, it's hard to see the squeezing out another $22 million and change without another, more successful stunt re-release.

I can see it snagging another ten this long weekend, but that'll be about it.
