What’s Happening:

  • Previously set for release on June 25th, the next Venom movie from Sony, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, has been pushed back by a few months with a new release date set for September 17th.
  • Not only will the move allow more work on post-production, but will also provide extra space between the James Bond tentpole No Time to Die.
  • This is not the first time Venom: Let There Be Carnage has been delayed. Originally set for a release in October of 2020, the closure of theaters due to the global COVID-19 pandemic caused the original delay to June 25th, 2021.
