Sony Pictures has announced that the next instalment of its 2018 superhero movie Venom could arrive in the Indian cinemas by 17th September and the movie will be called “Venom: Let There Be Carnage”.
The next instalment of the movie Venom will be dubbed in Hindi, Tamil as well as Telugu, and the film shall have 3D along with the IMAX releases.
Venom 2018 managed to gross close to ₹ 35 crore at the box office in the country.
Over the next few months to come, the Americal movie industry is all set to offer an eventful summer in India with a slate of big releases such as Disney’s spy thriller Black Widow from its Marvel Universe, the latest instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise, F9, and also the Tom Cruise-starrer Top Gun: Maverick.
Top Gun: Maverick is the much anticipated and asked for sequel of the 1986 movie Top Gun starring Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer which was a huge hit.
Several smaller titles such as Mortal Kombat, an adaption of the insanely famous game of the same name, A Quiet Place: Part II, Godzilla vs Kong and The Conjuring will also draw attention during this period.
During the pandemic which was caused by the Novel Coronavirus, the first movie titles to hit the big screen in India were from Hollywood. Some of the most famous of these included Christopher Nolan’s Tenet and superhero film Wonder Woman 1984 with box office collections of ₹ 12.43 crore and ₹ 15.54 crore respectively.
The prospects for movies are looking bright as the COVID vaccine are now being rolled out despite a spike in the cases continues.
Though India is a small market for Hollywood, it is very important and it is very crucial for the western movie industry to build on the success of both Tenet as well as Wonder Woman that enjoyed the first-mover advantage given the absence of new local films, some film and trade experts say.
In the past, the big-scale Hollywood movies hardly ever notches up a screen count of 1,500 to 2,000 in the country, however, as the space left by the Bollywood industry, it would not come up as a surprise if Hollywood movies manage to get more screens during this time.
Additionally, the release of Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984 are clear signs of Hollywood’s intention to look at theatrical showcasing.
