Sony has dropped the first official trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage – which is just as comical, grisly and unhinged as we expected it to be. Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and his symbiote anti-hero friend Venom will return to face off against the psychotic killer – Carnage.
Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) who was introduced in the post-credit scene of Venom will play the main villain aka Carnage in the film. The trailer also emphasised the relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom, which was dwelled up in the first film.
The sequel was initially scheduled to be released in October 2020, however, the pandemic forced it to change dates multiple times. Venom: Let There Be Carnage will be now debuting exclusively in theatres on September 24, 2021.
It was speculated that Tom Holland’s Spiderman will make a cameo in the trailer, but it has been proved otherwise. Check out the trailer below!
Venom: Let There Be Carnage, like the first part, is expected to have a PG-13 rating. This might disappoint fans since the movie might unleash just enough carnage to keep itself from being Rated R. The main reason for Sony keeping it PG-13 is that Venom x Spiderman might be on the cards for future Sony/Marvel movies.
Along with the surprise trailer, we have also received an official poster for Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
While the first film wasn’t particularly well-received among critics, it was a commercial success with $856m at the box office against a budget of only $116m.
Andy Serkis, the motion-caption maestro will be directing the movie. The actor’s experience will surely enhance the much dependent visual effects of Venom 2.
Tom Hardy (Eddie Brock/Venom) will clash against Woody Harrelson (Cletus Kasady/ Carnage). Naomie Harris (Frances Barrison) is expected to play Shriek; Kasady’s love interest. The rest of the cast includes Michelle Williams (Anne Weying), Reid Scott (Dan Lewis) and Stephen Graham (Detective Mulligan).
