Im Filmjahr 2019 kehrt Thomas Stanley Holland in seiner Superheldenrolle als Peter Parker alias Spider-Man zurück! Nach seinem Kinodebüt in Marvels 'Spider-Man - Homecoming' kämpft er in 'Far From Home' erneut für das Gute: Peter Parker entschließt sich als der freundliche Superheld aus der Nachbarschaft mit seinen besten Freunden Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon), MJ (Zendaya) und dem Rest der Clique Urlaub in Europa zu machen. Doch seinen Plan, die Superheldenkräfte für ein paar Wochen hinter sich zu lassen, muss Peter schnell aufgeben: Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bittet ihn, das Geheimnis um zahlreiche, schwere Angriffe aufzudecken, die Zerstörung über den ganzen Kontinent bringen... Nach dem spektakulären 'Spider-Man - Homecoming' (2017) kehrt Peter Parker mit 'Spider-Man - Far From Home' (2019) in einem neuen, sensationellen Abenteuer zurück. Diesmal ist es Avengers-Ikone Samuel L. Jackson (siehe 'Avengers - Infinity War' und 'Glass') alias Nick Fury, der die Unterstützung des jungen Helden anfordert. Neben Thomas Stanley Holland ('Spider-Man - Homecoming', 'Avengers - Infinity War'), Jacob Batalon ('Spider-Man - Homecoming') und Zendaya ('Spider-Man - Homecoming', 'Greatest Showman') in den Hauptrollen, ergänzen Jake Gyllenhaal (siehe 'Life' oder 'Stronger'), Marisa Tomei ('The First Avenger - Civil War'), Jon Favreau ('Iron Man'), Martin Starr ('Spider-Man - Homecoming'), Cobie Smulders ('Avengers - Infinity War') und JB Smoove ('Date Night - Gangster für eine Nacht') den großartigen Cast. Die Regie lag erneut in den bewährten Händen von Jon Watts, das Drehbuch stammt wieder von Chris McKenna und Erik Sommer. 'Spider-Man - Far From Home' basiert auf den Comics von Stan Lee und Steve Ditko und wurde produziert von Kevin Feige sowie Amy Pascal. Als Executive-Producers zeichneten Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel, Eric Hauserman Carroll, Stan Lee, Avi Arad und Matt Tolmach verantwortlich.
From New York Times best-selling author John Connolly, a wonderfully strange and brilliant novel about a boy, his dog, and their struggle to escape the wrath of demons. Young Samuel Johnson is in trouble. Not only is his eyesight so poor that he mistakenly asks out a letter box on a date, but an angry demon is seeking revenge for Samuel’s part in foiling the invasion of Earth by the forces of evil. It wants to get its claws on Samuel, and when Samuel and his faithful dachshund, Boswell, are pulled through a portal into the dark realm, the home of the Infernals, it gets its chance. But catching Samuel is not going to be easy, for the Infernals have not reckoned on the bravery and cleverness of a boy and his dog, or the loyalty of Samuel’s friend, the hapless demon Nurd, or the presence of two clueless policemen and the unlucky, if cheerfully optimistic, driver of an ice-cream van. Most of all, no one has planned on the intervention of an unexpected band of little men, for Samuel and Boswell are not the only inhabitants of Earth who have found themselves in the underworld. If you thought demons were frightening, just wait until you meet Mr. Merryweather’s Elves. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Gerard Reynolds.
