The trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to Venom is finally here – as is the new villain Carnage.
Viewers can sneak a peek at the comic-book red symbiote character that was briefly introduced at the end of the first Venom movie released in 2018.
In the trailer, Cletus Kasadi (Woody Harrelson), a demented serial killer, experiences a lethal injection in a prison that seemingly awakens the symbiote inside him and turns it into a Slaughterhouse. He and Tom Hardy, whose character Eddie Brock has made a little peace with his Poison alter ego, fight in a massive symbiotic confrontation.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” will be released on September 24, 2021. Originally scheduled for October 2020, the film has been postponed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most recently rescheduled for a week from September 17 to September. 24.
Andy Serkis takes over the directing of the sequel from Ruben Fleischer, who directed the first film to bring Venom to the big screen as an antihero of sorts. The first “Venom” was a box office hit, grossing $ 855 million worldwide, and its September release date allows the sequel to make good money at the box office as moviegoers return to theaters.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage also stars Michelle Williams as Ann Weying, Reed Scott as Dan Lewis and Naomi Harris as the Scream symbiote.
The film features a screenplay by Kelly Marcel based on a story by Marcel and Hardy. It is produced by Marcel, Hardy, Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal and Hutch Parker. The executive producers are Barry Waldman, Jonathan Cavendish and Ruben Fleischer. The music for the film is composed by Marco Beltrami.
