Just before New Year’s Eve, Sony Pictures lost yet another director who was attached to helm the video game adaptation Uncharted. The project felt like it was finally becoming a reality, but then Dan Trachtenberg left. He was replaced a month later by Travis Knight, but the fast-track that Sony had the movie on resulted in him leaving too. Now we’re dealing with the eighth director who will attempt to make the project happen: Venom and Zombieland franchise director Ruben Fleischer. Read More »
Venom is in theaters now, and despite negative reviews from critics, audiences decided to see the Marvel Comics movie for themselves, taking the movie to an $80 million opening weekend. Whether audiences walked away satisfied and hungry to see where Venom goes next remains to be seen, but there is at least one hint of what might be included in future Venom movies thanks to an alternate opening to the film revealed by director Ruben Fleischer.

You likely could’ve guessed this, but Venom director Ruben Fleischer has made it perfectly clear: Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios had nothing to do with Venom. Fleischer is quick to add that he hopes one day, Feige and the MCU will play a hand in Venom‘s future. For now, though, Tom Hardy‘s brain-eating slime monster is on his own.

Much like the symbiote monster at the center of Venom, it appears director Ruben Fleischer has crafted two wildly different movies that don’t come together to form a single cohesive film. Keeping audiences engaged is Tom Hardy (as many social media reactions indicated), but it seems that he only truly becomes a mesmerizing character when it’s too late in the movie, though it just might be enough to get audiences intrigued in a totally insane sequel.

You’ve been patient, and finally the time has come. The first reactions to this week’s release of Venom have arrived, and they certainly pack a punch.
The anticipation for Venom has been lukewarm, mostly because the trailers painted quite an odd movie that felt like it came out of a time capsule that was lost in 2004. Well, it sounds like that’s exactly what the movie delivers, complete with a bizarre and fascinating performance from Tom Hardy that makes the movie surprisingly funny, intentional or not.

This week brings Venom to theaters, and fans will finally get to see if Sony Pictures can pull of a movie featuring a prominent Spider-Man villain without including the webslinger himself as a major character. Tom Hardy takes the lead role as Eddie Brock, an intrepid reporter who ends up infected with a dangerous and deadly symbiote that turns him into a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type of personality who is hungry for flesh and keeps getting him into dangerous situations. Can an eclectic actor like Tom Hardy make this work?
That’s the question everyone is wondering, and if we’re to believe Tom Hardy, the answer might be no. In a recent interview, Tom Hardy was asked what his favorite scene to film was, and he surprisingly answered: “There’s scenes that aren’t in this movie.” Well, that’s not a very good sign. Find out more about the Venom deleted scenes below. Read More »
Another day, another Venom clip. Like the most recently released footage, what we see here is Tom Hardy fighting a room full of dopes with the help of his trusty symbiote buddy. The result is essentially Hardy arguing with himself as he flails and kicks about, sending fools flying. Watch the Venom clip below, and enjoy the admittedly amusing moment where Venom grosses Tom Hardy out by suggesting he bite off some heads.

Zombieland 2 continues to creep along. The long-awaited sequel to the 2009 horror-comedy will go into production sometime in January 2019, according to director Ruben Fleischer who, alongside the original cast, will be returning to the sequel.
This will push the Zombieland sequel’s release date past a planned 2019 anniversary release, as early reports had previously suggested. But after years of false starts and rumors, it seems like the sequel’s production is finally kicking into gear.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Despite much of the hoopla surrounding Venom that it would be darker, bloodier, and more R-rated than most superhero fare, the Sony comic book movie has been saddled with a teen-friendly PG-13 rating. It’s a rating that makes sense considering the film’s supposed appeal to “the fans,” most of whom are teen boys. But it’s one that doesn’t live up to Sony’s year-long hype train of Venom as a dark and dangerous spin on the superhero movie — nor to that buzzy San Diego Comic-Con scene involving Venom’s teeth and someone’s head.
But director Ruben Fleischer teased that a potential Venom unrated cut could appease fans wishing for something more brutal.

One of the central questions about Sony’s Venom movie has been about its rating, and now the answer has officially arrived: Venom is going to be PG-13.
Also, some new box office tracking numbers have arrived and have zeroed in on how the film might perform during its opening weekend. If these numbers are correct, Tom Hardy‘s anti-superhero movie is about to break a box office record.
