For this year’s Erstikino we present a stunning superhero movie of the next generation: „Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse“. Miles Morales returns for the next chapter in the Oscar-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.
If you’ve watched a lot of animated media, you should know that sensation: that moment in a movie or show when the animators let completely lose, turning the screen in front of you into a bombastic firework of color and motion to show the full scale of their proficiency (and budget). A moment capable of making your heart beat faster or sending a shiver down your spine as you stand face to face with the artistic power that only animation possesses.
Across the Spider-Verse is that moment, but stretched out over the duration of more than two hours. It’s a tour de force of the medium and a pure piece of art on top of a magnificent story with a great villain to match its ensemble of fantastically written heroes. If you love animation, no if you love cinema as a whole, this movie is an absolute must-see.
