After several push backs, Colombia and Sony Pictures’ Venom: Let There Be Carnage will now arrive theatres 2 weeks earlier than previous release date.
The pandemic is mainly to blame for the previous delays, with Sony’s original plan being to have the film in theatres last year. The sequel was set to open on Sept. 24 in the U.S., and recently was moved to Oct. 15 instead. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film would be pushed forward. However, rather than a 15th October 2021 release, the film will now open on October 1.
Woody Harrelson will star as Carnage in the film, alongside Tom Hardy’s Venom. The highly anticipated film may also give fans a glimpse at Sony’s live take on the multi-verse, since we can assume Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be joining his Sony compatriots soon enough.
It’s strange to see Sony move the film up after just pushing it back and amidst Delta-variant cases picking up. However, it’s possible that Sony wants to move their superhero film as far away from Marvel’s ‘Eternals’ while also giving themselves enough time to breathe in between Venom and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
