The follow-up to the 2018 blockbuster promises more Tom Hardy 'n' trashy fun, including a particularly amusing breakfast scene
Anyone who came away from the quite bad but undeniably entertaining 2018 Venom movie wondering how Tom Hardy and his new symbiotic pal would deal with everyday activities like “eating breakfast,” you're in for a treat: the new trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage is here to tackle that very question. Hint: they make quite the mess! Take a look:
Not merely breakfast, but Woody Harrelson, too, seen here chewing the scenery as Venom's nemesis, Carnage, thus ensuring that pun in the title works. A movie in which Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson both compete for the hammiest performance? Sounds like the exact thing we need to bring back cinema from the brink.
The first Venom movie did little for the critics, but was a box office smash, pulling in close to a billion dollars at the box office, and now enjoys a healthy afterlife as a “good trash” classic. Whether or not Venom: Let There Be Carnage can manage a similar feat remains to be seen, though on this breakfast-based evidence director Andy Serkis (!) certainly has his priorities in the right place.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is scheduled for release in the UK in September.
