The first trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage has arrived and wastes no time highlighting just how unpleasant things can get when a symbiote bonds with a human host. This time around, Eddie Brock (the returning Tom Hardy) and his ravenous alien pal will face off against Cletus Kasady, an unhinged, remorseless, and red-haired serial killer with an alien goo of his own. Not a very good combination. Kasady is played by Zombieland’s Woody Harrelson, who briefly appeared in the mid-credits scene of 2018’s Venom.

Hoping to emulate the success of the first film, Venom 2 once again highlights the symbiotic relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom, both of whom were played by Tom Hardy. The strange, unsettling, intriguing, and even somewhat romantic courtship between this disgraced reporter and his gooey friend is once again at the heart of this anti-hero story, and their sequences together were among the movie’s better beats.

Michelle Williams and Reid Scott also return to reprise their roles of Anne Weying and Dan Lewis, respectively. Naomie Harris is among the newcomers, playing the antagonist known as Shriek. Stephen Graham and Sean Delaney have been cast in undisclosed roles. Screenwriter Kelly Marcel, who co-wrote the first movie, takes solo credit for the sequel.

Originally scheduled to open in October 2020, Venom: Let There Be Carnage was pushed to Friday, Sep. 24 of this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
