Well according to TechRadar, Sony has moved its release date of Venom: Let There Be Carnage to the 1 of October, in what has to be considered a major win for the theaters and the fans of dubious ’90s comic book villains.
The Venom sequel, featuring Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson and directed by Andy Serkis, is debuting in less than a month. That puts it just one week onward of No Time To Die’s US release date of October 8, resulting in a competitive few weekends for blockbusters.
After a year of some big new movies in the cinema, then Sony is about to get a whole lot of them at once. Even the highly anticipated adaptation of Dune also will be released on the 22 of October.
Venom Let There Be Carnage Release Date Have Been Moved But Its Good News This Time
According to Digital Spy also, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is an extremely silly-looking film. As Eddie Brock (Hardy) adapts to life with an alien symbiote bonded to him, a similarly powered foe named Carnage joins the fray. His alter ego is serial killer Cletus Kasady – basically Woody Harrelson in a silly wig.
A fresh addition to the cast is James Bond star Naomie Harris who is playing the very noisy villain, Shriek. Chatting to IGN recently, director Andy Serkis said: “She’s a damaged soul and she really has suffered in her childhood, but there is a real vulnerability about her, and she’s in a lot of pain. She’s been living in isolation for years, years, and years.
It’s not been revealed what Shriek’s storyline is yet, but going on her original plot in the comic books, we’ll possibly be watching her and lover Cletus Kasady/Carnage go on a murdering spree together.

Sony is said to Move the Movie Again
With $127.6 million in box office earnings after one weekend, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings feels like it might’ve been a factor, here. Venom 2’s release was originally set for mid-September itself but delayed by almost a year due to the issue of the pandemic.
Then, Sony had to move the movie again to an October 15 release date, according to some reports, suggesting it was going to be stuck in a holding array for some time. You can get more info about the release date here.
