'Marvel's The Avengers' 'Labor Day Re-Release' TV Spot

Relive all the action and excitement of director Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble in theaters one last time over the holiday weekend.
Yesterday, we reported that Marvel Studios is bringing Marvel's The Avengers back to theaters nationwide for one week only, from August 31 to September 6. Today, the studio has released a TV spot touting the re-release, before this superhero ensemble arrives on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD September 25. One question still remains though: Will this limited theatrical engagement deliver on the speculation of new footage being shown after the credits? Only time (and the price of a ticket) will tell.

Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.

    @jasdjqs I just meant that after a movie stops playing in theaters, that is the end of its' "expected" run. That is the expectancy. Not the length of time it remains in said theaters. I know they can screen movies for however long they want. My point remains that when they bring the movie back, they cheat the system.

    @comicbookfan there is no Expected life span, in fact a theater can show a movie as long as they want , there is one in Jersey that up to a month ago was showing Snow white. but i did not see the avengers again so I like most people are going to wait till the Blueray release

    @jasdjqs You're missing the point. It doesn't matter if a movie was made "many moons ago" or not, or if it was already killing the numbers. The fact remains if ANY movie is brought back into ANY theaters after expected theater lifespan, regardless of which location or time period, which is trivial at best, it is simply cheating. Not every movie gets that chance. Only these "special" select few for some unspecified reason. Which is crap.

    @comicbookfan@ROFLitschristian . I saw box office mojo before this release, Notice this movie movie is still playing .so this movie is just being played again at certain movie theaters. Titanic and starwars were released many moons ago's so that is cheating the numbers. Avengers was release earlier this year and Japan in august. BTW the avengers does not need to cheat the numbers it was already killing everything this year and maybe next year unless Man of steel knocks it out

    Is this cheapening the movie? I think it might be. Just get it out on Bluray already. F*ck!

    @ROFLitschristian It's still cheating. Most movies don't get that special treatment.

    @comicbookfan In The Dark Knight's defense, it wasn't re-released to top Titanic (because there was honestly no chance). It was re-released to be considered for the Academy Awards and just Award season in general.

    @comicbookfan Yes, i agree. I don't think that they should be doing that. What they should be doing, is releasing the extra footage in the Blu-ray release that's coming out September 25th.

    @themoviefanatic Yeah, they always have excuses of why they're bringing movies back into theaters but the bottom line reason is to cheat the numbers.

    @comicbookfan You have a good point there. They should have just save the extra footage from the movie, for the Blu-ray release that comes out on September 25th.

  15. CBF

    @themoviefanatic Yes, of course I would. I would say that for any movie that cheats their way into outperforming other movies. I said it when they brought back The Dark Knight to try to surpass Titanic by cheating the numbers. It's absolute garbage.

    @comicbookfan Would you say that for The Dark Knight Rises, if it was to be re-released in theaters?
