Sony Pictures has released a new three minute trailer for its upcoming and highly anticipated new Marvel movie Venom starring Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom. Check out the official trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the storyline. The Venom movie will be premiering on October 5th, 2018 and stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze and Reid Scott alongside Tom Hardy.
“Following a scandal, journalist Eddie Brock attempts to revive his career by investigating the Life Foundation, but comes into contact with an alien symbiote that bonds with Brock, giving him superpowers as long as they share the same body.” Director Ruben Fleischer noted that unlike a werewolf or Jekyll and Hyde, the relationship between Brock and the symbiote is a “hybrid” with the two characters sharing a body and having to learn to work together.
“One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom. An investigative journalist who becomes the host of an alien symbiote that imbues him with super-human abilities and a horrific alter-ego: “Venom”. Hardy was drawn to this duality, and compared the two characters to Ren and Stimpy. He gave each a distinctive voice: an “aw-shucks American accent” for Brock; and a James Brown “lounge lizard”-like voice for Venom. Hardy called Brock an “anti-hero” who would “do whatever he has to” accomplish a goal.”
