A new trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage has just dropped, and you can check it out below (it contains some strong language):
The follow-up to 2018's Venom, starring Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams, gives us a better glimpse at the titular villain Carnage, played by Woody Harrelson.
Hardy returns once again as Eddie Brock, a journalist who plays host to the alien symbiote Venom.
We first saw Harrelson as Cletus Kasady, a prisoner who has his own symbiote buddy - called Carnage - at the end of the first film, which prepared everyone for the plot of this sequel.
From what we can tell, it looks as if the pair are set to square off against one another in a battle for the ages, played out down here on planet Earth.
The film - like so many other things - was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It will be released on 15 September in the UK and 24 September in the US.
As well as the antagonistic relationship between Venom and Carnage, the trailer also teases some more details of the often fractious relationship between Brock and his freeloading alien chum.
Williams returns as Eddie's ex-girlfriend Anne Weying, and Reid Scott returns as Anne's new partner.
The first flick was directed by Ruben Fleischer, but he's been replaced for the second outing by The Lord of the Rings star Andy Serkis, which should be interesting.
Screenwriter Kelly Marcel paid tribute to Hardy for his role helping to devise the script for the second film, explaining how he decided to get involved with the writing process.
She told Empire: "This is new for him, to get credit,
"But it's not new for him to be this involved. He's absolutely 100 percent committed to everything that he does."
She added: "He's married to Venom,
"He loves this character. He's very involved in what he thinks should happen.
"He doesn't get a pen and write. We spent months breaking the story together on FaceTime, riffing on ideas, seeing what worked, seeing what didn't.
"Then I took everything we spoke about and holed up somewhere for three months quietly, knocking out a script."
Later this year, we'll get to see what they came up with.
