Sony has announced the release date of Venom 2’s that have been delayed to October 15. This film was first to be premiered on September 24. The production hopes for theatrical release for the film but as there is null attendance in both domestic and overseas box-office they would push back the film for the improvement of the box-office.
Studios like Disney and Warner Bros have taken a step to lower their box-office by applying for hybrid or day-and-date releases with films to be premiered on their respective platforms at the same time in theatres. With such types of releases, this helps them lower the box office but it provides controversial as Scarlett Johansson sued Disney for an alleged breach of a contract with the relation of the hybrid release of Black Widow. This is the main problem for Sony as they do not have popular and dedicated streaming platforms like HBO Max or Disney+.
