Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘s (Venom 2) release date is once again on the move, but in a very surprising (but welcome twist), it’s actually been brought forward.
According to Variety, Sony has taken the rare decision to bring the release date forward by two weeks.
The film will now open in the US on October 1st.
Shang-Chi box office success reason for change in date?
The sequel got delayed from its initial October 2020 release, due to the ongoing pandemic.
The film changed its release date three more times, from June 2021, to September, and once more to October 15.
Shang-Chi‘s success at the box office could have swayed Sony’s decision.
The latest entry in the MCU broke Labor Day weekend records, by bringing in $90million in its first four days.
Venom Vs Carnage Vs Bond?
However, it’s not yet been confirmed when the film will open in UK cinemas.
With No Time To Die poised to open on 30th September, something tells us Sony won’t want to pit Venom against 007.
Tom Hardy will reprise his role as Eddie Brock/Venom, facing off against Woody Harrelon’s Cletus Kassidy/Carnage.
Michelle Williams, Stephen Graham, Naomie Harris, and Peggy Lu round out the rest of the film’s cast.
Andy Serkis is in the director’s chair, with a script written by Kelly Marcel.
