We are now living in a world where the Venom sequel might just top most of the major Marvel Studios movie releases this year. Venom: Let There Be Carnage exploded at the opening weekend box office, earning more than $90 million, beating the three day opening weekend totals of both Black Widow and Shang-Chi. Granted, these are pandemic numbers, but still! Venom 2 is apparently a popular movie!
Movie Rating: 6/10 – Pretty Good
I saw Venom: Let There Be Carnage opening night, because that’s how I roll with most superhero movies. I was a lukewarm fan of the first film, finding it to be a rather dumb affair, held aloft solely by the insane fun of Tom Hardy’s dual lead performances. The sequel brings all of that back, while also finally bringing Carnage into a live action movie. Fans have been waiting for Carnage for a very long time. Did he live up to the hype?

I did not know this was coming today, but here it is! A new, fuller trailer for Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage! And this thing is chockablock full of Carnage everywhere!
Man, oh man! Would you look at that! They’re going full Carnage, it seems. He’s got the look, he’s got the viciousness. This is apparently what moviegoers want to see! I’m cool with it too, though I’m still salty that they didn’t use Jenny Slate as Scream in the first Venom movie. That would have been so much better!
I liked the first Venom movie well enough. It was a crap movie, but the Venom/Eddie Brock stuff was fun, and that looks to continue for the sequel. So we’ll see.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is scheduled to come out on Sept. 24…but you’ll notice that neither the trailer nor the description have that date attached. Considering COVID is on the rise again, I wouldn’t be surprised if this film gets bumped back.
