CHICAGO – “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is remarkably light on its feet considering it takes place in the wake of the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” After the five year period between finger snaps which is now referred to as “the blip,” Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and some of his classmates have returned the same age, while everyone else has gotten five years older. Oscarman rating: 4.0/5.0
Rating: 4.0/5.0

But Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is frankly feeling a little burnt out on “Avengers” level superhero duties. He’s more focused on his upcoming class trip to Italy. He’s also got an elaborate plan to try to get noticed by M.J.(Zendaya), while ghosting S.H.I.E.L.D. Boss Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) when duty comes calling.

“Spider-Man: Far from Home” opens everywhere on July 2nd in IMAX, RPX, 3D and regular screenings. See local listings for format theaters and show times. Featuring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Marisa Tomei and Jacob Batalon. Screenplay by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommars. Directed by Jon Watts. Rated “PG-13”
