‘Venom 2’ Gets Full Title and New Release Date

Amidst a wave of setbacks in Hollywood, Sony has officially announced the full title of 2018’s Venom sequel as Venom: Let There Be Carnage along with the film’s new release date set for June 25, 2021 via a teaser on YouTube.

The teaser can be seen here:

Although originally set for release on October 2, 2020, Venom: Let There Be Carnage derives its title from the mid-credits scene at the conclusion of the original film. The scene introduces Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), the villain who similar to Eddie Brock becomes bound with an extraterrestrial parasite known as Carnage.

What became a surprise breakout success upon its release in 2018, Venom starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, earned a massive $856.1 million worldwide which warranted a sequel almost instantly.

The new film is directed by Andy Serkis, who is known for his motion-capture appearances as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films and as Caeser in the Planet of the Apes prequel series.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
