Sony Pictures has released new Venom: Let There Be Carnage posters and announced that the movie will now hit theaters on October 25, three weeks after the previously-set September 24 date.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage will screen in 3D, IMAX and premium large format theaters.
The movie follows the 2018 original, which grossed over $850 million worldwide and officially launched Sony Pictures’ own Universe of Marvel Characters.
Academy Award-nominated actor Tom Hardy returns to the big screen as the lethal protector Venom, one of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters.
The screenplay is by Kelly Marcel from a story by Tom Hardy and Marcel. The producers include Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, Hutch Parker, Kelly Marcel, and Tom Hardy.
The executive producers are Barry Waldman, Jonathan Cavendish, Ruben Fleischer, Edward Cheng, and Howard Chen.
The first film was directed by Ruben Fleischer and was released in theaters on October 5, 2018. In the movie, Eddie Brock (Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom.
As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious founder of the Life Foundation, genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) – and that obsession ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams).
Upon investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, as well as the chance to do just about whatever he wants.
Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating.
As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined.
