The first Venom movie, while lacking in story and character development, showed promise. And now with the arrival of the sequel's trailer, the scary morality tale of the battle between humanity and giving into based desires has given way to… a buddy comedy.
Okay. So, it's not fair to judge the entire film by its trailer but we did see snippets of humour with Tom Hardy's character, Eddie Brock, trying to quell the alien symbiote that's bonded to him back in the first film. Now, the sequel is like The Odd Couple but with Woody Harrelson's Mickey Knox thrown in.
Another thing that we noticed, Andy Serkis is also directing this. He, who is the Meryl Streep of motion capture acting, might be able to draw out more convincing portrayals and emotions of the symbiotes.
And the trailer's tag says that Venom: Let There Be Carnage is shown "only in movie theaters [sic]." You know what this means right? THE CORONAVIRUS WILL BE ERADICATED BY THEN! Yeah. I don't know how Sony Pictures is gonna pull off the end of the pandemic but with such a bold claim that the Venom sequel is only going to be shown in movie theatres—AND NOT ONLINE—it's very inspiring. I mean, there's no way that that will led to hubris, right? RIGHT?
Venom: Let there be Carnage is scheduled for a September 24 release.
