Sony has finally dropped the trailer for delayed sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which brings back Tom Hardy as Marvel character Eddie Brock and this time has him facing off against Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, played by Woody Harrelson.
As the trailer shows, Brock and his crazy symbiote, Venom, are now more or less used to each other and are trying to live as roomies. Brock is still trying to keep his alien other half’s murderous tendencies down; “Rules: No Eating People,” reads a pizza box sign stuck to the wall of Brock’s appointment. “No, you can’t eat Mrs. Chen,” he tells Venom at his local store. But, of course, Venom must be unleashed when Carnage rises.
It’s an energetic first trailer that should bode well for those that enjoyed the first film. We get a surprisingly good look at Carnage, get a glimpse at Naomie Harris as villainess Shriek, and there are a few Spider-Man nods in there too – such as a spider being crushed and Stephen Graham’s Detective Mulligan reading The Daily Bugle newspaper.
This marks the third feature as director for actor Andy Serkis, who previously helmed Breathe and Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle. Kelly Marcel, one of three screenwriters on the first film, is sole writer here.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage, also starring Michelle Williams and Reid Scott, will be in Australian cinemas on September 16th and US cinemas on September 24th.
