Sony Pictures has postponed the released date of the film during the pandemic and was most recently set it for a June 25th release. However, despite the reopening of movie theaters in Los Angeles and New York City, it’s not entirely surprising that “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” was rescheduled.

Meanwhile, Universal had recently changed its “Fast and Furious” sequel “F9” later this June, so the two tentpoles would have opened on the same weekend and would have competed for attention from younger male moviegoers. Unfortunately, the box office recovery has been so slow, at least in North America, the commercial prospects for one potential blockbuster, will be a bit uncertain.


Together with the rescheduling of “Venom” sequel’s release date, Sony has also pulled “Man from Toronto,” an action comedy with Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson, from its release calendar. The action-comedy film was originally scheduled for September 17th to hit the big screen.

Tom Hardy will reprise his role as the titular alien symbiote. Venom 2 is directed by Andy Serkis, the original 2018 film became a surprise box office hit, grossing $855 million globally. Woody Harrelson, Michelle Williams, Reid Scott, and Naomie Harris will join Hardy in the second installment.
