If you thought the first movie was gory, buckle up because Venom: Let There Be Carnage appears to turn it up to eleven. Thanks to the brand new trailer, we can see that things are not going as swimmingly as they should be.

The trailer shows us that Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and the symbiote Venom are still trying to figure out how to live with one another. For example, Venom is really jonesing for “bad guys” to eat while Eddie is vehemently against it.

Things are about to get worse for the two after an incident with serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson). The inmate had gotten a symbiote in his system and it transformed him into Carnage, a red symbiote with a taste for blood. Now Venom and Eddie have to work together to stop Cletus’s rampage across the city.

You can check out the trailer below:

First off I have to say – THANK GOODNESS FOR THE UPGRADED LOOK ON HARRELSON! Goodbye terrible, curly wig. Hello, flat, ugly wig. At least he’ll shed that wig as well. I’m also looking to his performance. It seems he takes on his symbiote much faster and easier than Eddie did.

I also enjoy that Carnage, like his comic book counterpart, is essentially the son of Venom. A son that scares the bejesus out of his father but nevertheless. While we did see some of the action, you know the symbiotes are going to cause a lot of destruction and gore. Especially after Eddie promises that Venom can eat everyone.

We also got a good look at Frances Barrison aka Shriek (Naomie Harris), despite not being addressed at all in the voice-over. Plus we can’t really tell what her role will be in the story. She will be Eddie’s love interest in the film, even though in the comics she’s the lover of Cletus Kasady. Could they perhaps keep it comic book accurate and see Frances betray Eddie? We’ll have to wait and see.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is directed by Andy Serkis and written by Tom Hardy and Kelly Marcel. The film stars Hardy, Michelle Williams, Harris, Reid Scott, Stephen Graham with Harrelson. It’ll eat its way through cinemas on September 24th, 2021.
