Today, Marvel Studios released a brand-new Black Widow featurette and clip, which you can watch using the players below. Black Widow is an action-packed spy thriller that launches simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access in most Disney+ markets on July 9, 2021.
Black Widow is the first new movie in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first new Marvel Studios theatrical release since 2019.
In Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Black Widow is directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige. “I think what’s exciting about the film is we’re playing with the audience’s expectations,” said Shortland previously.
“We’re exploring parts of Natasha that the audience has absolutely no idea about. We explore her family, love and passion, and you get to see all these facets of her we have never seen before.”
The action-packed spy thriller is launching simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access in most Disney+ markets on July 9, 2021. Black Widow will be available to all Disney+ subscribers on October 6.
Disney+ subscribers can pre-order Premier Access to Black Widow through July 8 for $29.99 in the U.S. and Canada. Once subscribers get Premier Access to the movie, they can watch it as many times as they want on any platform where Disney+ is available, with an active Disney+ subscription.
To see Marvel Studios’ latest film on the big screen, fans can purchase advance Black Widow tickets through Fandango or wherever tickets are sold.
The Black Widow IMAX release comes with 22 minutes of select scenes in the expanded aspect ratio.
With several scenes specially-formatted exclusively for IMAX theatres, film fans can experience Black Widow on the massive IMAX screen at 1.90:1 aspect ratio – showing up to 26% more of the onscreen image.
Aspect ratio is the technical term for the proportional relationship between an image’s width and height. Most films are presented in an aspect ratio called CinemaScope (2.40:1) which is why they appear very wide but not very high.
IMAX provides filmmakers with the ability to use an expanded aspect ratio – allowing them to use more of the original image. Watching a film with an expanded aspect ratio provides audiences with a full immersive view that fills the peripheral vision more than any other cinematic experience.
