KP Snacks has announced the launch of a new on-pack promotion for Butterkist, celebrating the much-anticipated release of the new Sony Pictures film, Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Butterkist popcorn buyers have the chance to win one of five Sony tech bundles, which each include a Sony Bravia 65” smart TV, a Sony All-One Sound Bar, and Sony headphones.
Due to be released exclusively in cinemas on 17th December, in Spider-Man: No Way Home we see for the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighbourhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.
