Where are all my Spidey fans?
Last month, in celebration of the Spider-Man Far From Home release, I went on a EPIC field trip without the kids! It was nice to just drop them off at school, and get in a little me time. Here is a photo recap of our INCREDIBLE day with the creators of Spider-Man Far From Home film…
You can now watch it at home on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital!
Thank you Sony Studios for inviting me to the Spider-Man Far From Home field trip.
Peter Parker’s relaxing European vacation takes an unexpected turn when Nick Fury shows up in his hotel room to recruit him for a mission. The world is in danger as four massive elemental creatures — each representing Earth, air, water and fire — emerge from a hole torn in the universe. Parker soon finds himself donning the Spider-Man suit to help Fury and fellow superhero Mysterio stop the evil entities from wreaking havoc across the continent.
My family thinks it is absolutely hilarious that they call him Night Monkey in the film. This film is great for the entire family!
We lined up like good little students, and boarded the bus.
Our tour guides were none other than Martin Star and J.B. Smoove! (Mr. Harrington and Mr. Dell in the film) How cool is that?
These guys kept us entertained from the minute we boarded the bus. I can’t remember when I laughed this hard.
Martin Starr is an actor and comedian. He is known for the television roles of Bill Haverchuck on the short-lived comedy-drama Freaks and Geeks (1999–2000), Roman DeBeers on the comedy series Party Down (2009–2010), and Bertram Gilfoyle in the HBO series Silicon Valley (2014–present), as well as for his film roles in Knocked Up (2007), Adventureland (2009), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).

Smoove portrayed a fictionalized version of himself on the BET improv-comedy reality television parody Real Husbands of Hollywood and performed in Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).
Our first stop …. The Third Floor Studio in Los Angeles.
Here the Spidey team talked about there collaborations, and the behind the scenes work to make this this phenomenal movie come to life. The Third Floor is responsible for several movies we see today including: Several Marvel films, Game of Thrones, Detective Pikachu, and much more!
A European excursion goes south as Peter Parker finds himself up against the elements in Spider-Man: Far From Home (Sony Pictures Entertainment). In a repeat collaboration with Director Jon Watts, THE THIRD FLOOR mapped out Spider-Man’s adventure across multiple action and story beats in a transcendent journey that leads us far back home into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Next stop… Ironhead Studios
For me this was one of my personal highlights of the trip. I was totally geeking out when Jose Fernandez, talked about how he and his team create costumes for several studios. He is the driving force at Ironhead Studio, and has been the lead creative artist behind some of the most memorable work of the last two decades!
The details an artistry in these costumes were absolutely incredible. Some of them can take several months to create.
Our last stop… was The Magic Castle!
Last but not least we stopped at the Magic Cast for an incredible magic show by illusionist, Jason Latimer.
I have alway dreamt about going here, and this was another pinch me moment. The show was sensational. There were many jaw dropping and surprising moments.
Jason Latimer is a world champion magician, curator of the iconic Fleet Science Center, and co-host of the Science Channel series SciJinks. Latimer unites magic and science to inspire curiosity and demonstrate how the right question changes everything.
From bending light to shaping water, his illusions are featured globally on Television Specials, Series, Live Shows, STEM Labs, & science festivals. Latimer’s works has sparked millions of minds to embrace their ability to wonder.
The Spider-Man Far From Home themed treats we perfect for the occasion.
Thank you Sony Studios for the incredible day trip. This will go down in my memory book as of my most favorite press trips!
