Sony acts after the blockbuster weekend seen by Shang-Chi!
Okay, I officially give up now! The release of the sequel ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ has been shunted all across the calendar. First, it was to open last year. Then it was delayed until this summer. Next, it was shoved to a September release. Then it was decided that an October 15th release would be in order. Now, thanks to the box office success of Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings’, it is on the move again. But this time, the news is good for the film.
The film has now shifted its release date FORWARD by two weeks. Instead of hitting screens the same day as ‘Halloween Kills’, the film will now open on October 1st instead. In the United States, it gives the film a one-week head start on the latest James Bond film ‘No Time To Die.’ A two-week head start on ‘Halloween Kills’. And a three-week head start on the powerhouse that is ‘Dune’. However, in the United Kingdom, no release date change has been announced or confirmed as yet. If ‘Venom’ does move to an October 1st release date there, it will open one DAY after ‘No Time To Die.’ It may be an idea to hold back or bring forward the film there by a week. Otherwise, it will get squashed by the 007 Juggernaut.
‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ will now open on October 1st.
Are you happy that the film has shifted forward by two weeks? Will you still be going to see it in the theater? Let us know your feelings!
