The movie is slated for an early release on October 1st, 15 days before its rumoured release date of October 15.
The original series, Venom directed by Andy Sirkis, was released to surprising success in 2018, grossing approximately 855 million US Dollars at the box office.

In this installment, Eddie is trying to revive his journalist career by scoring an interview with a serial killer named Cletus Kassady (Woody Harrelson) who in a fashion similar to Eddie is host to another alien symbiote named Carnage. The series also sees the return of Michelle Williams as the ex-girlfriend of Eddie Brock, Anne Weiying. It also introduces Naomi Harris as Frances Barrisson aka the Shriek.
The release of the series has gone through an equal number of twists as the plot itself. It was expected to be released in October of 2020 when the unexpected alien virus launched the word into a pandemic and shifted moving to go into the bottom of many peoples to do lists. The hope for the old normal has placed Sony into shifting the release dates. However, the recent release and success of series like Shang-Chi and The Legend of 10 Rings have propelled forward the release date for the Venom franchise as well. The caveat to the news is that the date is confirmed only for the US audience and not for other regions that might have to wait a bit more.
