Sony moves up the Venom sequel premiere date by two weeks


By Ray Ampoloquio September 8, 2021

So far, the release dates of movies have changed so much these past two years.

It's become customary not to expect a film to premiere on a specific date unless we're just a few days or weeks away

However, while most delays push back the launch of a movie, Sony has decided to do something quite rare.

Sony has now decided to make Venom: Let There Be Carnage earlier by at least two weeks.

Not long ago, there were rumors of Sony deciding to push back Venom: Let There Be Carnage to 2022.

After "confirming" that the Venom sequel will drop on October 15, 2021, Sony has decided to release the upcoming sequel earlier.

Instead of an October 15 release date, Venom: Let There Be Carnage will come two whole weeks earlier.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage will now release on October 1.

Sony did not specify the reason behind the change.

It doesn't take an expert to know that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings played a key role in it.

The latest MCU film pulled in north of $90 million at the domestic box office.

Sony might have taken Shang-Chi's success as a sign that audiences are willing to make compromises just to get a chance to watch movies in theaters.

Only time will tell if this will happen if the Venom sequel will do just as well as Shang-Chi or its predecessor.
