Today Sony have announced the title of the sequel movie Venom 2, it will be called Venom: Let There Be Carnage, it rolls off the tongue doesn't it?

They have also announced a confirmed release date of 25th June 2021, later than the original 2nd October 2020 Sony had originally penciled in for the movie.

Tom Hardy

The movie will be directed by Andy Serkis unlike the original which had director Ruben Fleischer in the chair.

Once again the film stars Tom Hardy as Venom/Eddie Brock and Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, they will be joined by Woody Harreldon who plays Cletus Kasady.

Interestingly this is the same release date as Jurassic World: Dominion is set for but expect Universal to change that at some point.

Sony had a runaway hit with Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse earlier this year, even winning the Oscar for best animated feature, so its no surprise they have announced a sequel for release in 2022.

Sony Pictures

The exact date of release is April 8th 2022, not much more is known about the sequel yet although I guess we will get drip fed information until the release date.

Its no surprise they are releasing a sequel, the first film made $375 Million globally, and as they are sharing profit for the movie franchise with Disney this keeps their hand in the Spider-universe.

They also have their Spider-villain franchise going with Venom for which their is a sequel due next year.

There was a rumour that Tom Holland would be in the Spider-Verse sequel as the real life Spider-Man who gets sucked into the animated world, that would be fun if true.

At the UK box office this weekend, Friday, 18th October 2019, there are 6 new releases looking to take your attention at the local multiplex and knock Joker from the top of the UK box office chart next week.

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil

The Todd Phillips directed Joker hits the top of the US box office ahead of expectation and breaks the American October debut record while Abominable falls to number 2.


Starring Joaquin Phoenix as the title character the DC villain movie has had its fair share of controversy, but good reviews, especially the performance of Phoenix has helped it to a $96.2 Million debut weekend.

This beats the record for the top October opening, held by last years superhero villain movie Venom, which took $80.3 Million this weekend last year.

This is a very different film and with Oscar potential for lead actor this could have a good run.


The animated movie from Dreamworks falls from the top to number 2 this weekend with a gross of $11.2 Million.

This takes the well received films total gross after 2 weeks to $37.7 Million.

Downton Abbey

The British made film about the famous stately home falls to 3 this week with a weekend take of $7.9 Million.

This takes the films total US gross to a very respectable $73.6 Million after 3 weeks of release.

The film has now taken a excellent $91.4 Million after 4 weeks of release and should hit the $100 Million mark by next weekend.

IT Chapter Two

Andy Muschietti horror sequel has done better than initially though on release and this week slips to number 5 with $5.3 Million which pushes the films total to $202.1 Million after 4 weeks of release.

The Lion King

Disney's remake is the film with the longest run on the this weeks US box office as it spends its 12 week inside the top 15 with a total gross of $541.2 Million.

Disney dominate the global box office of 2018 but the Dinosaurs make a good challenge and Sonys Super Villain experiment pays off with Venom showing its legs.

Avengers Infinity War

Avengers Infinity War

Disneys Superhero powerhouse ran away with the global box office in 2018 with the first part of their Avengers story which will conclude in 2019.

Avengers: infinity War took just over $2 billion at the global box office, the first film to reach the milestone since The Force Awakens in 2015, also from Disney.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdon

A strong international showing for the Dinosaur film stopped Disney from totally dominating the global box office as the Jurassic World sequel is the third top film of 2018 with $1.30 billion.
