The LONG awaited Spider-Man No Way Home is just around the corner after multiple delays and more than a year of speculation. Releasing on December 17 (U.S.), the film is set to mark the return of (almost) every villain from past Spider-Man franchises. There’s no doubt that fans are already clamoring for tickets, and lucky for you, the wait is just about over.
Tickets officially go on sale tomorrow: Monday, November 29 which is now SPIDER-Monday, I don’t make the rules. But when do they go on sale? Will there be a trailer release with it? New poster? Relax with your questions, we’re here to help. Because if that record shattering first teaser is anything to go by, it’s safe to say finding a ticket will be like finding a PS5 or Xbox.
You’ll need to be quick
When do Tickets Go on Sale?
There isn’t a clear, universal answer so far besides Monday, November 29. Specific times will vary depending on the theater chain. AMC Theatres have already announce via Twitter that tickets will go on sale at 12:01 AM EST (very late Sunday).
There’s word going around that Cinemark has also confirmed to release their tickets at this same time (12:01 AM EST) through a push notification, although I cannot confirm this.
The easiest way to ensure tickets is to stick to social media to catch any announcement as well as consistently refreshing ticket sites. I linked a few of the sites here for you to bounce around and check every couple minutes. You can thank me later.
The hype around this movie grows by the day, so expect the ticket-buying experience to be similar to Avengers Endgame or Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Sites will probably crash and virtual lines will be out the door (if that’s even possible), but it’ll be worth it to be there opening weekend.
Will a Trailer Drop As Well?
This is another question on everybody’s minds and for good reason. Blockbusters lately have loved to release 60-90 second teasers that end with the big words: “TICKETS ON SALE NOW”. Not to mention, the last trailer was titled “Trailer #2” instead of “Final Trailer” and didn’t even hint at a few heavily rumored characters.
But tickets go on sale at midnight which makes a trailer seem unlikely. There is always the possibility of one dropping later in the day to stagger the ticket rush. After Avengers Endgame sent the internet to the dark ages, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to stealth release tickets for Spider-Man No Way Home at midnight before general audiences know about it.
If there is a trailer, what would it even show?
Probably a tease of multiple Spider-Men. It’s no secret that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are pretty much expected to show up at some point, but I still don’t think they’ll be shown. The press of “where are they” is too good, but not showing them in marketing would basically be throwing money away.
They may not even be in the movie at all since there’s no true evidence of their involvement, but if they are then they’ll probably be teased in the marketing.
What About a Poster?
While I’m not comfortable betting all my money on a full blown trailer, I would be shocked if we end the day with nothing Spider-Man No Way Home related. A poster seems the most likely since none of the posters released so far have felt like the official poster.
I wouldn’t expect it to show anything groundbreaking unless they actually show Tobey, Andrew, or Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock in a new teaser. It seems unlikely at this point that they would show some of the greatest cameos ever unless they’ve been saving them exclusively to boost ticket sales.
If not tomorrow, then they most likely won’t be in any marketing.
In the end, it doesn’t really matter. We’re still going to see the movie ASAP, we’re going to buy the tickets, and it’s going to break records. If I had to guess, we’re getting a new poster along with a short trailer that teases the two Spider-Men before cutting to black and displaying those money-making words: “Tickets On Sale Now”.
Spider-Man No Way Home hits theaters December 17. The film is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, and more. Tickets on sale tomorrow.
