With one month until its release in cinemas, 'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' had its London premiere last night, with a screening for eagerly-awaiting fans of the franchise.
If what we're hearing is anything to go by, the early reactions to 'Venom 2' are glowing, delivering a fairly solid entry in Sony's next anti-hero offering.
Director Andy Serkis joined stars of the movie Tom Hardy (and his pooch, Blue), Woody Harrelson, Stephen Graham, Michelle Williams and Naomie Harris on the red carpet for the event last night, which afterwards hosted a Fans First screening.
After viewing the hour and a half action film, fans have been praising it to no end, so much so that one viewer even reckons it has Oscar nominations written all over it. We won't be holding our breath on this one (but you never know?).
The biggest talking point, however, appears to be the reactions to the 'Venom 2' post-credits scene.
We can hypothesise all day about who or what it could be that appears in said scene, but it's interesting that the news arrives on the same day as director Andy Serkis discusses the potential Venom and Spider-Man crossover we've been waiting for. Speaking with IGN, the star said: "Of course it's gonna happen."
Here's what has been said about the upcoming sequel film. As always, it's advised to be wary of fan reviews, as they can be biased a lot of the time.
And there's also this, which we couldn't help but applause for its accuracy.
'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' releases in cinemas on October 15.
