COVID-related movie delays are unfortunately still hitting the film industry, and the latest victim is Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The film has already been shuffled many times since its original fall 2020 release date, and Sony has now decided to shift the premiere from September 24 to October 15.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage takes place after the original 2018 film Venom, which (unwillingly) brought together Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and an alien symbiote named Venom. The film’s mid-credits scene teased a glimpse at a Marvel Comics supervillain, the serial killer Cletus Kasady (portrayed by Woody Harrelson) aka Venom’s archenemy Carnage, who will now play a key role in the upcoming sequel.
In addition to Hardy and Harrelson, the film also stars Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris, Reid Scott, and Stephen Graham.

Let There Be Carnage is directed by Andy Serkis with a screenplay by Kelly Marcel and a story by Marcel and Tom Hardy. It’s produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, Kelly Marcel, Tom Hardy, and Hutch Parker.
