The decision to make the film exclusive to cinemas has been two-fold for many. While some praised the Studios’ decision, others criticised it for not putting into consideration that some viewers may not feel comfortable returning to the cinemas just yet.
Why did Sony Pictures move up the date for “Venom: Let There be Carnage”? This has been the question on many people’s lips, and the reasonable explanation is that Shang-Chi’s impressive outing has encouraged the production company.
With $90 million raked in in its first four days, Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings” has become a beacon of hope for studios. It is a sign that viewers will be willing to leave their homes to see a movie in theatres again with the right hype.
Likely, other coming Sony Pictures films like “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” may also get new dates soon depending on how Venom 2 performs in the box office. The sequel starring Woody Harrelson, Michelle Williams, Reid Scott, Naomie Harris, and Tom Hardy (reprising his role) is expected to surpass the first instalment.
However, to do this, “Venom: Let There be Carnage” will have to make more than $740 million —after its budget has been deducted. Director Ruben Fleischer is also returning to helm the film, so it is in good hands behind the scenes.
