Sony Sends Updated Version of ‘Across The Spider-Verse’ To Theaters
While Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was undeniably a major success for Sony Pictures, the film seemed to have one small flaw.
Complaints poured in on social media about the low audio levels during the film’s introductory scene, which centers on Hailee Steinfeld’s Gwen Stacy.
While the sound issues were isolated to “a handful of theaters,” it was enough to get the attention of Across the Spider-Verse writer-producer Phil Lord.
“#SpiderVerse friends! If you get to the theater early and you want a fun mission ask someone to check that the theater volume is set at reference (7)! If it sounds a bit quiet, invite them to turn it up a touch to 7.5! And If they give you flack… tell them we said it was okay,” Lord tweeted.
In response to the audio issues experienced at some theaters, Sony has sent an updated version of the film to cinemas. According to Variety, “all of the prints” have been updated.
Sending re-edited prints to exhibitors is not uncommon. What is interesting, however, is that Sony decided to apply such a widespread remedy to the limited problem.
Across the Spider-Verse is the second animated Spider-Man film focused on Miles Morales.
The film dominated the box office during its opening weekend hauling in $120.5 million. Since then, the film has run its cumulative total up to $225.5 million.
That is an astounding number for a cartoon with a $90 million budget. The film has been lauded by critics and audiences alike.
