The film industry is cheering the decision of the Maharashtra government to open the theatres from October 22 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Many celebrities have expressed their delight by announcing the release dates of their respective movies. However, there are some Hollywood films that will release before the predetermined release dates but will certainly gain from this decision.
One of the Hollywood ventures to hit the screens before cinema halls open in Maharashtra is Venom: Let There be Carnage. Amid the announcements by makers, even an international filmmaker has announced a change in release dates. The Tom Hardy-starrer action film is set to arrive a day earlier on October 14 in India.
It was earlier announced last week by Sony Pictures Films India that Venom: Let There Be Carnage would be releasing on October 15. And now, it has been shared that it would be hitting the theatres, a day earlier on October 14. It will arrive in Maharashtra a week later on October 22, the day cinema halls open again in the state. Apart from English, the movie is also releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages.
