Sony Moves Up Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s Release Date
After rumors of the film being delayed into 2022, Sony has done the opposite and moved up the release date for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Originally set to be released on October 15, the film will now be released on October 1. The decision is based on the “success” of Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings which saw an estimated $90 million Labor Day weekend.
Tickets will go on sale Wednesday for the film which will screen in 3D, PLF, and Imax.
The original Venom was released on October 3 and opened with $80.3 million. The sequel would have seen competition with Halloween Kills if it kept its October 15 opening, so the move is not unexpected and likely helps boost the film’s first weekend gross. October will still be a touch month with No Time to Die opening on October 8, Halloween Kills on October 15, and Dune on October 22.
