The Release Date for VENOM LET THERE BE CARNAGE Has Been Delayed Again.
Sony Pictures has announced that they are pushing the release date of Venom: Let There Be Carnage back again. The movie was supposed to release on September 24th but now is pushed back to be released on October 15th.
The film has already suffered delays prior due to the pandemic and with the state of fear surrounding the area due to the COVID-19 delta variant, the studio has decided to delay the film.
It’s explained that the “surge has led to a decline in consumer confidence in returning to the movies. According to a recent survey conducted by the National Research Group, 67% of moviegoers say they’re ‘very or somewhat comfortable’ visiting their local multiplex — which is a dip of 3% compared to last week, and down 14% from one month ago.”
We saw a slight surge of success in theaters very briefly, but with the resurgence of COVID cases, theaters have seen a dramatic drop in attendance once more showing that they have not recovered from the last 18 months of the pandemic. You can’t really blame the studio’s decision given the numbers some very great films put out recently such as The Suicide Squad which earned $26.5M in its opening weekend despite being praised by fans.
Andy Serkis directed the film that stars Tom Hardy as Venom, Woody Harrelson as Carnage, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, and Naomie Harris (Moonlight), who is reportedly playing the villain Shriek, Carnage’s love interest and accomplice.
