Venom: Let There Be Carnage's First Trailer
Venom: Let There Be Carnage's First Trailer

About three minutes long, the first look at the Sony-Marvel film showcases Eddie Brock’s (Tom Hardy) life with Venom and how they have something of a Seymour-Audrey II Little Shop of Horrors-thing going.

Viewers witness Kasady become Carnage in the midst of being executed in prison for his horrendous crimes.

Tom Hardy returns to the big screen in Venom 2.

Directed by Andy Serkis, the Venom sequel also stars Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris and Woody Harrelson, in the role of the villain Carnage (Cletus Kasady).

The screenplay is by Kelly Marcel from a story by Tom Hardy and Kelly Marcel. Sony's Venom: Let There Be Carnage opens only in theaters on September 24 in the US, September 15 in the UK and September 16 in Australia.

Along with our hero, the teaser gives us our first look at Carnage, Venom’s red symbiote counterpart who’s hellbent on causing chaos and destruction.

While the first trailer for the original movie was filled with unintentional comedy — including a tongue that set the internet on fire — this one seems to be a little bit more aware of its jokes. In fact, the first movie’s best moment may have been Tom Hardy’s improvised scuba diving trip into a fish tank, which seems like the slap-stick style that sequel director Andy Serkis is leaning towards. Also back is Tom Hardy’s excellent Jekyll and Hyde routine, as both Eddie and Venom.

There was little doubt Kasady would be back in the upcoming sequel, Let There Be Carnage, and in the new trailer makes clear that the sequel’s bringing its own new titular symbiote into the mix.

Slight as the trailer is in the way of plot details aside from Kasady finally transforming into Carnage, it does show how Eddie and Venom’s relationship’s grown in the time since the last movie. Let There Be Carnage seems to have kept the first Venom’s sense of humor, as it plays Venom and Eddie’s bro-y deadbeat vibes for comedy in moments where the pair aren’t in action, drooling, and threatening to eat unsuspecting victims.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage was originally supposed to debut in Oct. 2020, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the film was delayed until June 25, 2021. In March, the movie was delayed again — thanks in part to F9 being moved to June 25 as well — and is now set to be released on Sept. 24.
