Shots of helicopters filmed in San Francisco.
Venom: Let There be Carnage will be broadcast this Sunday for the first time unencrypted: see you at 9:10 p.m. on TF1. If the editorial team doesn’t really recommend this sequel, still carried by Tom Hardy and this time directed by Andy Serkis, this super-production has a funny filming anecdote which concerns another film unveiled this week in the same way in France (but on TMC): Matrix Resurrections.
Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage, a sequel without head and tail (review)
The team of Venom: Let There be Carnage took advantage of the simultaneous filming of Matrix Resurrections in the heart of the city of San Francisco, revealed the supervisor of the filming locations of Andy Serkis’ blockbuster to ScreenRant, in October 2021. During an action scene filmed on the roof of Coit Tower, Eddie Brock and Venom (Tom Hardy) are chased by the police, and we see helicopters in the background, which the public supposes to be reinforcements of the local authorities to catch the anti-hero and his extra-terrestrial sidekick. Except they were actually in use on another shoot, explains Christopher Kusiak: “The helicopters were flying for the new Matrixwhich was being filmed at the same time, so we captured some of their activity with our cameras.”
The craziest theories about Matrix Resurrections
He specifies that if this coincidence was very practical concerning this sequence (Sony certainly saved money by not having to pay for the use of helicopters, nor by adding them digitally in post-production), the filming of Matrix 4 in parallel with theirs has sometimes complicated the manufacture of Venom 2.
Particularly because he had started a few weeks before, and therefore had priority when booking filming locations. “There are lots of things that impacted our shots, he explains. Several planned city driving scenes were skipped because the crew Matrix controlled the whole lower part of town… We ended up moving a waterfall onto the roof of a parking lot because we couldn’t access certain areas because of the other filming. Finally, if it had been us who had started the shots first, it would have been the opposite, it was undoubtedly the team of Matrix who would have suffered all this.”
Here is the trailer for Venom 2, while waiting for news of issue 3, which must be designed by Kelly Marcelthe screenwriter of the first opuses:
