    CULVER CITY, Calif. (February 18, 2019) – The Academy Award® Nominee for Best Animated Feature Film, SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, swings onto Digital February 26 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on March 19 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Sony Pictures Animation. From Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the uniquely creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, the film offers a fresh vision of the Spider-Man universe with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind.

    SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, a film that has grossed over $350 million in theaters worldwide to date, introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the iconic mask. “One of the most rewarding experiences in recent months has been to hear that children are telling their parents that they see themselves in Miles, or that they want to grow up to be like Spider-Gwen, anyone can be a hero. Thats why we made this film, and we hope that feeling of empowerment is something that both audiences young and old can take away,” say Directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.

    The out-of-this-world voice cast includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales alongside Jake Johnson (“New Girl”) as Peter B. Parker, Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee) as Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen, Mahershala Ali (Green Book) as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta”) as Jefferson Davis, Lily Tomlin (“Grace and Frankie”) as Aunt May, Luna Lauren Velez (“How To Get Away with Murder”) as Rio Morales, Zoë Kravitz (“Big Little Lies”) as Mary Jane, John Mulaney (“Big Mouth”) as Spider-Ham, with Nicholas Cage (The Croods) as Spider-Man Noir, Kathryn Hahn (Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation) as Doc Ock and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”) as the villain Kingpin.

    SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE arrives filled with engaging bonus materials that are fun for the whole family and give fans even more of the unique comic book style action that they loved in theaters with over 90 minutes of bonus content. In his very own original short, Spider-Ham: Caught In a Ham, fan favorite Spider-Ham defeats his greatest foe, delivers sidesplitting puns, and get sucked into another dimension! It actually can get weirder! Don’t miss the thrilling Alternate Universe Mode where fans can view the film in an entirely new way to discover alternate scenes, plotlines, characters, and more with the filmmakers as their guide. Also included is The Spider-Verse Super-Fan Easter Egg Challenge, where fans are challenged to find every single Easter Egg hidden within the Spider-Verse (and there are a lot of them!). Explore the character design in the visually stunning film including specific looks at the now-iconic Spider-Ham character as well as the classic villains who inhabit the Spider-Verse. Additional special features include a celebration of the diversity in the film and the idea that anyone can wear the mask in a feature called We Are Spider-Man, a featurette called Spider-Verse: A New Dimension, where fans can hear from the artists and filmmakers who pushed the boundaries of the comic book artform to create a visual experience unlike anything done in animation before, a showcase of all the amazing fan favorite characters featured in the Spider-Verse and the actors who bring them to life, and a touching tribute to comic legends Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who originally created the Spider-Man character. Other bonus materials include two lyric videos featuring “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee and “Familia” by Nicki Minaj and Anuel AA (feat. Bantu).

    SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE is directed by Bob Persichetti (The Little Prince), Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardians) and Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street), and screenplay by Phil Lord and Rodney Rothman from a story by Lord. The film is produced by Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Phil Lord, Chistopher Miller, and Chrstina Steinberg. The executive producers are the late Stan Lee, Brian Michael Bendis, and Will Allegra.

    Bonus Materials Include:

    When it comes to this movie, I feel like I'm taking crazy pills...

    Initially I was curious why on earth an animated Spider-Man movie was getting so much attention, such a wide release. After all, DC has been cranking out great animated movies for years and years. (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm anyone?) Plus, we have live-action Spidey movies. Plus plus we've had over-saturation of Spider-Man for awhile now. I just wasn't interested. Then I saw the trailer..

    IMO the animation style is horrendous. Just awful. But EVERYONE was going on and on about how great the movie was, the animation style being a big part of it. Still, I skipped it in theatres. Watched it at home 2 days ago. The first 40 minutes anyway. I was hoping I'd get used to it. I did not get used to it.

    What's wrong? Many things.

    The stuttery framerate, looks like it was shot sped up then slowed down. (Of course, it wasn't *shot* at all.) Herky-jerky and so not smooth it's incredibly jarring to me.

    The art style. The weird, exaggerated aspects of characters faces and bodies. What the hell was Kingpin? He looked like and egg in a suit. (And KILLS Spidey by... punching him?!!?! Spidey got a gd plane dropped on him once and was fine.)

    The inconsistent nature of the art style. Some scenes/shots look/feel more like traditional 2D animation. Some are much more Pixar-y, and obviously taking place in a 3D environment. And some have both in the very same shot. Cardboard cutout-looking characters close to camera, with 3 dimensional cars and building in the background.

    Sometimes they do comic book-y stuff, like using divided panels. But not much, and for no discernible consistent reason. Sometimes the shading on characters has the 'dotted' look of printed comics. But sometimes not. Sometimes both, on the same character. (Smooth shading on the face, dotted shading on their clothes.)

    Same with the colors. Some scenes/shots look like a hippie acid trip, some look realistic.

    There's more, but you get the idea.

    I can't remember the last time I shut off a movie at the 40m mark. Or EVER shut off a movie because the visual style was so awful-looking to me. I stopped it 1/2 way through a big chase scene because it was genuinely hurting my eyes,, and giving me a headache. Like, an actual headache, not just exaggerating. I've brought this up with lots of people, and nobody seems to agree with me.

    So, guys, what in the hell am I missing? What's wrong with me? Everyone loves this movie. It's up for an Oscar, and will likely win. Help me understand why you like it. Hell, help me understand how you could simply *tolerate* it.
