“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” Unleashes Official Trailer

The official trailer for Sony Pictures’ Venom: Let There Be Carnage reveals a serious symbiote vs symbiote brawl for the ages. While the last time we saw Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), he had thrown down with another symbiote, Riot, who was being hosted by the body of Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), it’s safe to say Eddie and his symbiote life partner Venom have an even tougher challenge ahead. They’ll be facing—and fighting—the titular king of the alien symbiote carnivores Carnage, taking a ride in the body (and mind) of serial killer Cletus Kasday (Woody Harrelson).

The new film comes courtesy of the multi-talented actor/director Andy Serkis, and his involvement brings with it a tremendous amount of anticipation for just how crazy Let There Be Carnage will get. Brock has been trying to Venom under some semblance of control, but that will always be a challenge when you’re sharing your headspace and your body with an insatiably hungry alien monster. Increase the difficulty of Brock’s situation a thousandfold by not only pitting him against Carnage but by seeing the love of his life, Michelle Williams’ Anne Weying, get engaged to Reid Scott’s Dr. Dan Lewis. Tough times ahead for the perpetually beleaguered Eddie Brock. 

Joining Hardy, Harrelson, and Williams are newcomer Naomie Harris, playing Shriek—yup, yet another symbiote. With this talented cast and the immensely gifted Serkis behind the camera, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is one of this fall’s most eagerly anticipated films.
