    ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Trailer Unleashes Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson

    The new “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” trailer truly lives up to its name.

    The long-awaited new, official trailer for “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” dropped Monday, and it pits Tom Hardy against Woody Harrelson. A sequel to the largely successful 2018 film “Venom,” which earned over $850 million at box offices worldwide, “Let There Be Carnage” is packed with CGI superhero action.

    In the film, investigative journalist Eddie Brock (43-year-old Hardy) struggles to adapt to daily life after becoming the host of Venom, an alien symbiote. Venom gives Brock super-human abilities and wants to be the “Lethal Protector” who prevents Brock from getting his life back together.

    Brock interviews Cletus Kasady (Harrelson, 60), a serial killer who becomes the host of another symbiote, Carnage, who escapes prison. Kasady only speaks to Brock while in prison, but chaos ensues as the film progresses.

    In the opening moments of the trailer, Venom tells Brock, “Eddie, we should be out there, snacking on bad guys,” a hint at Venom’s overbearing influence on the journalist.

    “Venom: Let There be Carnage” is the newest film by director Andy Serkis, who had major acting roles in “The Lord of the Rings” film trilogy and the “Planet of the Apes” reboot series. The Columbia Pictures film, in association with Marvel and Tencent Pictures, also stars Michelle Williams, Reid Scott and Naomie Harris. Harrelson’s character was first teased in the post-credits scene of the original film.

    The trailer gives viewers the best look at Kasady and his alter-ego Carnage, who is seen scaring Venom back into Eddie’s body. Viewers also catch a glimpse of Eddie dealing with his ex-fiancée, Williams’ Anne Weying, who becomes engaged to someone else.

    The trailer hints that Kasady’s symbiote “infection” comes after drinking a mouthful of Eddie’s blood straight from his arm. Then, Kasady transforms into Carnage and breaks out of prison. Yet the trailer also plays up the comedic relationship between the two monster-like figures, an homage to the intense humor of the first film.

    Viewers also catch glimpses of Harris’ character Shriek, who can manipulate sound and may play a major role in the Venom-Carnage feud.

    The trailer has left many pondering whether the trailer is building up to a possible Spider-Man/Venom showdown that fans have obsessed about for years.

    The movie was originally scheduled to release in cinemas back on October 2, 2020, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. “Let There Be Carnage” was later moved back to June 25, 2021, then Sept. 17, 2021, and finally to Sept. 24 in the United States.

    “Venom​: Let There Be Carnage” will release in theaters — and only in theaters — on Sept. 24.
