Brief Synopsis:
The Elemental Expansion Edition aims to create the longest possible cut with footage taken from trailers, TV Spots and the Blu-Ray bonus scenes.

This cut adds 11 new scenes, shots and lines, expanding the runtime with 7 new minutes of footage, as well as restructing the ending of the film for a more fluid finale, with the mid-credits now being attached to the rest of the film.

Intention:
I wanted to create the longest watchable cut of Far From Home, and include all the extra material that I could from the trailers and Blu-Ray as I loved macmilln's cut, but missed some of the other unused scenes. As well as the mid credits scene annoying the hell out of me, it was something simple I could fix too, so I sought to create my own Expansion Edition. edited to my own liking.

Editing Details:
I did use macmilln's own Farther From Home for a few little audio transitions as he made his edit wonderfully.
I recut the "To-Do List" as it's restructed in the same vein as the official theatrical Extended Cut, rather than the Blu-Ray, and also includes a new shot of Peter grabbing the mini toothpaste that Aunt May mentions later on. It was in the trailer and the offical EC yet not the BR. The entire sequence is just shifted around slightly and has the notebook interludes removed.
Another scene that wasn't used was Beck creating a false energy reading for Fury to detect that replicates the other Elementals. The CG isn't 100% there, but I feel it's alright. This was included in the official EC, but had finished effects. Why they didn't just put that version on the BR is beyond me.
A few short shots and lines are also borrowed from trailers and TV spots for good measure.
Cuts and Additions:
- Added Peter's "To-Do List"" sequence and re-editing it according to the theatrical Extended Cut of the film.
- Alternate angle of Peter shutting his closet after he looks at his suit
- Added Peter saying "No banana, great" after the customs officer pulls out the fruit
- Two Alternate Angles when the class are discussing Mysterio
- Replaced one of Flash's lines about Spider-Man in the same scene
- Added extra reaction shot from Peter regarding the dickwad line
- Added Fury saying "Let's go for a ride" before him and Peter leave for the gondola
- Added Peter's class looking at some stuff at a shop when Peter stops to get the Night Monkey suit
- Added Beck talking to some hired extras and turning on a device to replicate an Elemental energy surge to trick Fury
- Added Peter and MJ falling asleep on each other on the plane back
- Edited the mid credits scene onto the end of the movie so that Peter says "what the fu..." before the credits music kicks in, similar to Homecoming
- Moved end-credits scene with Fury to the mid-credits
- New post credits scene

Having seen the original version in theaters, I decided to go with an expanded cut. Mostly the same as the original with extended and deleted scenes plugged in. The biggest deleted scene that I could spot was the much Peter’s To Do List sequence which we glimpsed in the trailers from before the movie came out. Peter uses a spider-bot in part of this sequence, which is really interesting and maybe was meant to be even a tie-in to the Disneyland ride but ultimately, it’s more distracting than anything because it’s never really seen before or ever again. Along with that there are some minor changes that don’t really do much for the movie and feel appropriate getting cut out. I do have to admit that playing on the mid-credits sequence and shifting it to the end of the actual film mirroring the “what the fu…” of the first film which was really cool and my preferred choice.

My version of the edit had problems on VLC player where the sound was a half second off from the film any time there was an addition it would fix itself and then be out of sync again. I’m not sure if it was just my copy but it was certainly frustrating. The editor is a great seasoned editor and I’ve seen other fanedits from them so I’m going to say it’s probably my copy. Outside of this, the visual and sound editing was pristine and spotless.

So while some of the additions are welcomed as mentioned above, I think the combination of my technical issues that I experienced, and the needlessness of some of the other edits (the class wandering around the shop, Beck talking to extras) doesn’t make it replacement worthy for me. Still enjoyed it though.

As for the film itself, I enjoy the MCU Spider-man films, yet once again, it’s a better MCU film than a Spider-man film. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is still obviously a teenager and it’s a much needed differentiating element, yet he shirks responsibility often and is pretty irresponsible, which after having seeing No Way Home it’s clear that that’s been the point of these films.

I find it interesting that both of the MCU Spider-man films have big reveals of the villain to kick off it’s third act. Both Jake Gyllenhall and Michael Keaton were excellent in their roles, and are both scene stealers. Particularly of note is the Dr. Strange-esque Mysterio illusion sequence, and although it’s fully CGI, it’s wonderful in it’s surrealist imagery and the closest that Marvel has gotten to a pure visual feast of mystical realism (next to Dr. Strange’s sequences). It’s pretty on par with the first film with Parker balancing his relationship woes, protecting his classmates, and his Spider-man/ Avenger duties.

Glad they kept the same thematic elements with Tony Stark’s shadow throughout, playing very well off of the previous film. Enjoyable Marvel blockbuster material, but never really stretches or live beyond the film like some of MCU’s best.

This edit basically recreates the official theater extended cut that is not otherwise available anywhere. There are not any noticeable cuts or audio issues that I could see and the placements of post/mid-credit scenes are much better. The new post-credit scene would have been hilarious to see in the theaters. Bobson's cut of Far from Home is, in my opinion, better than both the TC/extended TC. Amazing work!

Bobson Dugnutt knocks it out of the park again! The editing is flawless and I LOVED the new ending! Re-working the ending made the movie flow so much better. My only complaint was the volume seemed very quiet during dialogue scenes.

I love this so much, I was so disappointed when I walked out of the theater and the fight shown in the trailers (later released as "Peter's To-Do List) wasn't in the movie, this edit restores it seamlessly, as well as some pretty good deleted scenes and a new "post-credit scene" (It's really fun)
I recommend it thoroughly.

Simply AMAZING! I was bummed to have missed the extended cut of Far From Home during it's limited theatrical run, and disappointed that the bonus scenes weren't actually edited into the film on the Bluray. Thankfully Bobson Dugnutt has once again shown incredibly skill in seamlessly incorporating the extended scenes, tightening the ending by bringing the mid-credits scene up before the credits and giving us a very fun bonus in a new post-credits scene. This is without a doubt the DEFINITIVE version of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
