Venom: Tom Hardy Announces Release Date for New Trailer


CinemaCon is set to kickoff in Las Vegas tomorrow, and according to Venom actor Tom Hardy, Sony will be debuting a brand new trailer for its Spider-Man offshoot.

Hardy took to Instagram late Saturday to post a selfie of him heading to Las Vegas to attend CinemaCon for Venom. While the actor will be there to try and hype up the film, much like Tom Holland did back in 2016 for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Hardy revealed that Sony will also be debuting the second trailer at the convention -- suggesting a new trailer isn't too far off for the general public.

Sony Pictures is set to take the stage at CinemaCon tomorrow evening, between 6:30pm and 8:30pm PT, and while it's yet to unveil what it have planned, the official CinemaCon website suggests the studio will be teasing its schedule for "2018 Summer and Beyond." Sony Pictures Chairman, Tom Rothman, will be hosting the event, and he'll be joined by President, Worldwide Marketing & Distribution, Josh Greenstein, as well as the President of Domestic Distribution, Adrian Smith.

It's currently unknown if the studio will launch the new trailer online following its presentation. Either way, Hardy's post suggests a new trailer isn't too far off. Here's to hoping Sony reveals a first look at Venom following Hardy's dismissal of the rumors that the suit won't appear until the very end of the film.

What'll be interesting to see is if Sony decides to promote the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Of course, tomorrow evening is the premiere for Avengers: Infinity War in Los Angeles, an event that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Spider-Man actor, Tom Holland, are sure to be attending, and unless Holland jets between the two like he did with the premiere for Captain America: Civil War, it seems unlikely we'll learn anything new concerning the upcoming sequel. It's more than likely, however, that we'll at least get some news concerning the studio's first animated Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which thus far, has only released a teaser trailer.
