It Was Shot By Oscar-Winning Cinematographer Robert Richardson
The original Venom had the benefit of having Oscar-nominated cinematographer Matthew Libatique (Black Swan, A Star Is Born) on hand to shoot the movie. While he wasn’t able to return for the sequel, the production wasn’t hurting in the visual department. Director Andy Serkis hired acclaimed cinematographer Robert Richardson to manage the camera this time around. The three-time Oscar-winning D.P. is behind many acclaimed titles, including (but not limited to), Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, JFK, The Aviator, Inglorious Basterds, Hugo, Django Unchained, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2, Wall Street, The Hateful Eight and, most recently, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Richardson also shot Serkis’ directorial debut, Breathe, and he agreed to work on the filmmaker’s latest directorial feature. With such a prestigious cinematographer on hand, Venom 2 should hopefully look great.
