‘Venom’ Sequel Gets Official Title, But Has Its Release Date Pushed Back Several Months

The Governor of Georgia has announced that he will allow theaters to reopen next week, but that doesn’t mean they will open. In fact, all the major theater chains are expected to remain closed.

Not only would it be irresponsible to reopen right now, it would be an incredibly odd movie financially because there are no movies being released until at least July or August.

Most movies are still being pushed back, including Sony’s ‘Venom’ sequel. The studio gave the film an official title, ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘ but moved the release date back.

It was expected to hit theaters October 5, 2020, but now it has been pushed back to June 25, 2021. That’s an eight month delay.

By postponing ‘Venom’ until next year, Sony has reshuffled nearly every movie scheduled to release in 2020. The studio already pushed back many of its major films — including ‘Morbius’ (from July 31, 2020, to March 19, 2021), ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ (from July 10, 2020, to March 5, 2021) and Tom Holland’s ‘Uncharted’ (from March 5, 2021, to Oct. 8, 2021).

Sony is not taking any chances. Other studios have films lined up to be released in September, October, November and December of this year, but Sony is pushing most of their releases back to 2021.

As mentioned above, there are no major releases planned until at least late July and August, and it’s likely those might get pushed back as well.

So it wouldn’t make sense for theaters to open back up. If I had to guess, I’d say the majority of theaters won’t open until August. Maybe some in July, but who knows. It’s just a guess. I know nothing.
