One of the most unexpected hits in the comic book world was 2018. Poison, which became a Spiderman comic book villain into a main hero with a grossing of one billion dollars. Now, the sequel to the film will be released this summer. But the marketing campaign for Poison 2 It has been strangely quiet until now. In a new interview, the film’s director, Andy Serkis, explained that the state of theaters after closure has slowed the project’s marketing efforts.
“I am very excited for [the movie]. Again, it’s not something I can particularly talk about right now because we’re saving it for when everyone can go and enjoy it at the movies. I don’t want to spoil it or talk too much before then, but I’ve had a great time working on that movie. It has been great. [It’s] another group of brilliant actors, and it’s headed by another enthusiastic SAS man, Tom Hardy [Laughs]. I hope you are not disappointed. It was a real pleasure working on it … I think that’s the question I get asked the most: ‘When is the Venom trailer coming out?’ [Laughs]”
Considering as the first Poison made a killing at the box office, Sony is understandably wanting to release the sequel to packed theaters as well, which means Poison: let there be slaughter It is very possible that it will be delayed again if the situation with the empty theaters does not improve by the summer.
A great question that fans were hoping the marketing campaign of Poison: let there be slaughter I would answer is with respect to the rating of the film. The original Poison managed to survive with a PG-13 rating, but fans are hoping the sequel will unleash a fully R-rated story with lots of gore and graphic violence. In 2019, Poison producer, Matt Tolmach acknowledged that the success of jester, dead Pool other Logan had made the possibility of an R rating Poison film more likely.
“I mean, I think you always have to think about [it], now that it works. Having said that, our movie performed very well. Our franchise exists as it is, and I don’t think anyone is looking to just say, ‘Hey, they [did it]! ‘We have a place in the world. So it’s not like everyone is suddenly considering what to do with the rating. … I think what Joker does is tell you that you can be successful. For a long time, that was the narrative. And Deadpool struggled with that on the lawn, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally off-limits. … So, you know, I think it’s the best thing in the world that R-rated movies are being embraced by a mass audience. And it just means there are more opportunities for that kind of storytelling. “
