Fortunately, the vaccine against COVID-19 is already a reality, but it will still be a while before everything goes back to the way it was before the pandemic started in the world. In some locations, cinemas are reopening following strict safety and hygiene protocols, but studios are still figuring out how to catch up with the upcoming releases for the year.
In early 2021, Sony released a list of premieres set for the entire year, including highly anticipated titles such as Spider-Man: No Way Home, Morbius and Venom: Time of Carnage. The latter, scheduled to hit the big screen on June 24, has been postponed to September 17.
The second film will continue the 2018 film, portraying and further developing the relationship between Eddie and Venom and how this curious junction is evolving every day. Searching for the best way to deal with this inevitable symbiosis, the two discover how they can live together and, in some way, become better together than separated.
Tom Hardy is back in the new feature, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, signing the script alongside Kelly Marcel, who will be followed by none other than director Andy Serkis. Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson will repeat their roles, and Harrelson is expected to make revealing appearances after the easter egg from the post-credits scene of the first film, as Cletus Kasady, a serial killer who inherits a symbiote generated from the original Venom, becoming Carnage.
With the postponement of Venom: Time of Carnage, another work by Woody Harrelson for Sony has also been rescheduled. Scheduled to arrive on September 16, the day before the new date for the Sony Pictures feature, Man From Toronto has been removed from the release schedule. The film follows the actor alongside Kevin Hart, Ellen Barkin and Kaley Cuoco in the cast and tells the story of a cheater who is forced to join a killer after the two get confused while staying on an Airbnb. Filming began in October last year and is being directed by Patrick Hughes alongside screenwriters Robbie Fox and Chris Bremner.
