Even without the appearance of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Tom Hardy and director Ruben Fleischer proved that Venom could successfully grab the attention of audiences as easily as the eponymous Symbiote could snatch up his enemies for lunch. And with that box office, a sequel was never far behind.
In Venom: Let There Be Carnage, motion-capture performance wizard Andy Serkis takes to the director’s chair, and Tom Hardy returns as the journalist turned parasite host. New additions to the cast include Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady, a serial killer transformed into the super-violent, Symbiote-powered antagonist whose sadistic personality perfectly matches that of its alien host.
With two Symbiotes on the loose, Venom: Let There Be Carnage required many visual effects. Award-winning visual effects supervisor, Sheena Duggal, was on point to keep the two aliens in check—a job made simpler with cineSync in her toolkit.
