Venom: Let There Be Carnage hit theaters last October and delivers on the promise of symbiote-on-symbiote action. In the short 90 minutes, we saw the troubles in the relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom, along with the origin of the Murder Massacre. It wasn’t a groundbreaking cinema, but it did the job.
Now, for some reason, Sony Pictures has announced that they will be returning to some theaters for a second screening. This comes out the same day as the Blu-ray and digital release, check out the small trailer:
Let there be carnage making an unexpected return to multiplex channels is a bit confusing. The most likely possibility is with Morbius pushed back again come summer, Sony Pictures have a gap in their release schedule and nothing to fill it, so might as well try and make a little extra cash from this good sequel.
The company may also be based on going in the direction of Spider-Man: There’s no way home, as it also gives a brief introduction to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man (albeit on a TV screen). Audiences seem to care less about COVID right now, so anyone who decided not to see it in theaters in October might decide now is the time to see it.
The funniest but most unlikely reason is that Sony has Academy Award ambitions. After all, successful films are often re-released in January to create Oscar campaign hype, so perhaps they see Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson as contenders for some acting?
Anyway, if you want to see Venom: Let There Be Carnage in theaters from January 14.
