How to Watch Avengers Endgame's Bonus Content Here in the UK

By Tom Pritchard on at

On Friday Disney is re-releasing Avengers: Endgame with a whole seven minutes of bonus footage. Seven minutes that includes a single unfinished deleted scene, an intro from co-director Anthony Russo, and a teaser for Spider-Man: Far From Home. Plus a fancy poster of Tony Stark's take on the Infinity Gauntlet. One of the questions on your mind might be whether you can see it here, because these sorts of things can often be restricted to the USA.

The answer is yes you can, and from the looks of things you can see it at all three of the big chains.

If you looked up times last night like I did, you'll have seen that only Cineworld was offering tickets to the updated version of the film. But as things change rather quickly in the world of the internet, checking back in this morning showed me that Odeon and Vue will be screening the bonus footage as well. Considering those three chains cover roughly 70 per cent of the UK cinema market it means there will likely be somewhere close-by showing the film.

Picturehouse's booking website also confirms it will be screening the extended 187 minute cut of the film. Showcase and Empire are showing the film at various cinemas this weekend, though it's not fully clear which version of the film it is. I've emailed both, and will update if they get back to me with some confirmation. [Update: Showcase has now confirmed the new cut will be available to watch on Sunday and Monday (30th June and 1st July), but it will be exclusive to Insider members (signing up is free)]

Odeon and Vue have listed the re-release separately, as Endgame + Deleted Scene, or some variation, while Cineworld and Picturehouse are simply listing the film under its standard title. The key difference to note is that the re-release is 188 minutes long, differentiating it from the 181 minute original cut and ensuring you don't accidentally go and see the wrong thing. Not that you can, because that's all they seem to be showing anyway.

Is it worth the extra trip? Maybe not for the footage, but since Disney is supposed to be offering posters to attendees that makes it worth the cost of a cinema ticket in my book. Assuming you like the poster, which I do, and don't want to spend a fortune on eBay after the weekend is over. They're in limited supply, though, so there is a chance you might not get one.

 I love this poster 3000

If you can't make a screening, or don't fancy sitting through the film for another three hours, then don't worry too much. Chances are this bonus content will be online in a couple of weeks anyway.
