Venom Early Buzz

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.

Venom Deleted Scenes

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 »

Venom clip new

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.

A brand-new Venom clip is here, and it’s loaded with action and also Tom Hardy‘s goofy voice. In the clip, Eddie Brock finds himself confronted by a SWAT Team who want him to surrender. He’s not in the mood for that, and instead unleashes Venom in all his CGI glory. A severe ass-kicking follows. Watch the Venom clip below!

There are only two weeks left until Venom arrives in theaters, giving us all the face-licking, head-chomping, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde comic book action fans could ever want from the Marvel Comics anti-hero. That means Sony Pictures is ramping up the marketing for the movie, and what do Venom fans want to see from this movie the most? Tom Hardy doing hard-hitting journalism by confronting Riz Ahmed about the dangerous experiments supposedly being conducted by the Life Foundation. Read More »

Venom will chomp his way into theaters next month, giving Tom Hardy the chance to do yet another weird voice. While Hardy is covered in CGI goo while playing Venom, there’s a surprising amount of practical effects work in the film as well. If you don’t believe that, check out the Venom featurette below, showcasing Hardy’s work in bringing Venom to life.

venom unrated

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.

venom song

“Knock knock, let the devil in!” shouts Eminem on his new song “Venom”, and it just gets worse/more amazing from there. The song appears on Eminem’s new surprise album Kamikaze, and is also featured in the new Venom movie, starring Tom Hardy as a slime monster. For nearly five minutes, Eminem raps about Gandhi, Edgar Allen Poe, and Elliot from E.T.. What does any of this have to do with Venom? I have no idea. Hear the Venom song below!
