Venom: Let There Be Carnage Releases Two New Posters

No Comments

Sony Pictures has released a pair of new posters for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The upcoming sequel to 2018’s Venom is set to arrive in theaters this fall. As the marketing campaign ramps up for the release, we now have a fresh look at both Tom Hardy’s Venom and Woody Harrelson’s Carnage. Have a look. 

“What’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine. #Venom: Let There Be #Carnage opens exclusively in movie theaters October 15,” the first tweet reads. “#Venom vs. #Carnage. The face-off begins exclusively in movie theaters October 15. #Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” the second exclaims. 


As we can see, Twitter has given both characters emojis as well. The big thing here, aside from the posters themselves, is the new release date. Recently, Sony decided to delay the release of Venom 2 by several weeks. It had previously been set to arrive in September. Unfortunately, as the delta variant of the coronavirus continues to spread, things for the movie business have become uncertain again. As such, other big movies are likely to be delayed. 


Here is the synopsis for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. 


“Tom Hardy returns to the big screen as the lethal protector Venom, one of MARVEL’s greatest and most complex characters. Directed by Andy Serkis, the film also stars Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris and Woody Harrelson, in the role of the villain Cletus Kasady/Carnage.”


In recent weeks we’ve seen some big movies bomb hard at the box office. Snake Eyes, the G.I. Joe spin-off from Paramount, tanked hard. It’s expected to lose millions, given that it has only made $35 million worldwide from a reported $100 million budget. The Suicide Squad has also struggled. Even though it topped the box office in its first weekend, it took a plunge in its second frame. The DC Comics adaptation has earned just $118 million worldwide against a huge $185 million production budget thus far. 


Sony can’t take such a risk on what might be a surefire hit once things return to relative normalcy. Venom earned a huge $856 million worldwide. This, despite the fact that it earned largely unfavorable reviews from critics. It paved the way for further Spider-Man spin-offs based on characters Sony controls the rights to. Morbius is due out early next year. Kraven the Hunter is also on deck, along with several other projects. 


The point being, the studio won’t risk releasing a huge hit in uncertain times. They are currently boasting that October date. Though if things continue to get worse, not better, it could be delayed further. Much of this could depend on how Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings performs when it arrives on September 3. 


Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) directs the sequel, working from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel. Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris, Reid Scott and Stephen Graham also star. 


Venom: Let There Be Carnage is set to hit theaters on October 15.
