The very first trailer for Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage has landed and here’s our reaction and first thoughts to the trailer.
So, before we continue with this article, you can see the video version of our reaction and first thoughts about Venom 2’s trailer.
I’m going to go over pretty much the same stuff in this article.
So, if you’re more into watching videos than reading, then you can check the video out below.
Right, so onto my reaction to the Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage trailer.
It’s bloody brilliant. And when I say “bloody” I mean it.
The tone of this trailer is very dark, but there’s also a lot of humour in there too.
I love the bits between Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and Venom (also voiced by Tom Hardy).
It’s good to bring levity into these sorts of movies.
The first film had it, but it could have used a bit more, to be honest.
Was the Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage trailer any good?
The thing that really stood out to me about this Venom 2 trailer, though, was Woody Harrelson as Carnage.
He’s playing Cletus Kasady in the movie.
We did get a brief glimpse of him at the very end of the first movie, but Venom 2 will have him front and center.
This is why I’m really looking forward to this movie.
I think Harrelson is a terrific actor and brilliant casting.
I can’t wait to see him and Tom Hardy share the screen together.
It’ll be a meeting to remember.
Yet, judging by the trailer, it sounds like Cletus and Eddie might know each other already.
Could Eddie be the reason Cletus is in prison? Possibly.
The Venom 2 trailer is epic!
So, as far as this trailer’s concerned, I’m won over by it.
The film was supposed to be released back in 2020, but thanks to the pandemic, Sony Pictures were forced to delay the release a bunch of times.
It looks like it’ll be released in September, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that it hits that month.
It’s also coming to cinemas ONLY, which means that Sony Pictures really wants to make as much money out of it as they can.
Venom 2 was directed by Andy Serkis, which is yet another reason why I really cannot wait to see this film.
I think he’s a much better director than Ruben Fleischer who directed the first Venom film.
