Considering “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” only has a runtime of about 90 minutes, 7 minutes of free footage is pretty significant. And it’s a great way to dip your toes into the story without having to pay a cent.
The sequence kicks off with our introduction to Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson). It turns out Eddie Brock isn’t the only person with a dysfunctional relationship in the film as Cletus is utterly ruined when his beloved Frances Barrison (Naomie Harris) is taken away from him and locked up at Ravencroft many years ago. Even before he became infused with a symbiote, namely Carnage, Cletus was not someone you wanted to upset. From there, the film transitions to Eddie working alongside the San Francisco police department to get more information out of Cletus in the present day.
The clip perfectly encapsulates the movie’s tone. It’s a little dark, a little wacky, and entirely appropriate for what audiences expect out of a “Venom” film. Check out the first seven minutes now, and if it tickles your fancy, the rest of the movie’s there to satiate whatever appetite for carnage you might have.
