Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Sony has shifted back several films by a little bit, pushing the release dates of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Uncharted, and Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. The studio has announced that the Venom sequel will now release on September 24th, a week after its most recently-planned September 17th release date.

Meanwhile, the Tom Holland-fronted Uncharted will now release on February 18th, 2022 which is also a week later than the original February 11th premiere. Finally, the new Resident Evil film has moved from September 9th to November 24th.

The studio is, like all other film studios, in the midst of reshuffling its film slates as theaters begin to open again due to the pandemic. It’s become a sort of shell game, with studios moving films in response to other reschedulings. For example, Venom’s delay moves it away from The Suicide Squad’s August 6th release date and that in turn likely necessitated the move for the Resident Evil film.
