Venom: Let There Be Carnage just got a new trailer ahead of its expected theater premiere next month, showing us more of Woody Harrelson as Carnage, along with Tom Hardy’s return as Eddie Brock. An earlier trailer was released in May and on Monday Sony released another trailer with plenty of exciting new footage. You can take a look at the latest poison 2 images below.
Andy Serkis directs Venom: Let There Be Carnage using a screenplay by Kelly Marcel. Tom Hardy, who returns to the role of Eddie Brock, also contributed to the story for poison 2. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal and Hutch Parker produced with Hardy and Marcel.
The sequel also brings back Woody Harrelson as Carnage after the character’s initial introduction in a post-credit scene at the end of venom. Venom: Let There Be Carnage also stars Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Naomie Harris as Shriek, Reid Scott as Dan Lewis and Stephen Graham as Mulligan.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage takes place more than a year after the events of venom, with journalist Eddie Brock struggling to adjust to his new life as host of the alien symbiote Venom. This time he is challenged by serial killer Cletus Kasady, who similarly becomes the host of the symbiote Carnage and escapes from prison after a botched execution. While Hardy uses Venom’s help to become a vigilante, Kasady only wants to cause carnage if, well, Carnage.
“I really believed in”[original[original[origineel[originalvenom director Ruben Fleischer]Harrelson said of taking the part, via Empire. “I’ve never done anything where I hadn’t seen a script. Just roll the dice. I hoped everything would work out. Although Ruben wasn’t directing, my good friend Andy Serkis was directing and I felt so comfortable. It’s really cool that he came.”
On what to expect from the film, Harrelson added: “I’d better not give any details. I’m glad I got to do it. I wish I could say I’ve seen it and know it’s great, But I’m hopeful it’s great.”
“This character was so much fun to work on in the design and take with you [from] the comic book world,” Serkis said in a separate interview with IGN. “It was great to have the opportunity to take this character that has never been seen on screen before, just like you get to know him in our story and really get to know playing with the physicality, how he moves, how he extrudes his tentacles.”
The first venom was written by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg with Kelly Marcel. Although Sony didn’t expect the film to be such a huge success, it was a bit of a shock when venom drew more than $856 million at the box office. Not only did its success get a sequel ordered, it also helped launch a new cinematic universe that will include other upcoming films such as Kraven the hunter and morbius.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is slated for a September 15, 2021 release in the UK, followed by a September 24 release date in the United States. The film was originally set to premiere in October 2020, but like many other big name projects, it was delayed due to the pandemic. The new trailer comes from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
