Tom Hardy transforms into 'Venom' in rip-roaring thriller

  • New Venom TV Spots Reveal a Terrible Friendship

With Tom Hardy given free rein to be as twitchy and slapstick-disastrous as he wants, it's hard to believe this movie came out in 2018. However, Hardy has expressed interest in wanting to see Spider-Man in the Venom universe. The overall vibe is akin to the Nic Cage movie Vampire's Kiss; the one where Cage insisted on eating a real, live cockroach.

Venom now has a 35% Rotten Tomatoes rating and hits theatres on Friday. Through a lot of heavy plot lifting, Eddie ends up backpacking a symbiote named Venom that allows him to shoot out sticky-icky tentacles, scale skyscrapers, and occasionally transform himself into a hulking S&M man-beast with severe orthodontic issues.

Following a scandal, journalist Eddie Brock is trying to take down Carlton Drake, the notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation. News to talk about their new movie Venom and shared some of the feedback they've been receiving from their loved ones.

This isn't a Joker situation, where we're rolling our eyes at the very idea of it (even if we still can't look away), nor is it a situation where we're enthusiastic about the potential of something different and a bit unconventional, like with Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool, or even the upcoming Aquaman.

Our very own Animation Investigation host, Hector Navarro, brought along some visual aids to demonstrate the jokes that used to appear in Venom's solo comics. That's why the story works. But without Spider-Man, can Venom stand on its own and potentially lead the way for other Marvel spinoffs? But here, we have no particular investment in Eddie's wellbeing. Hardy is giving his all to comically elevate material that does not deserve it, and that becomes especially clear when his dual roles start getting romantically involved with one another. The first reactions to Venom are in, and they're kind of mixed at best. (In the world of Hollywood blockbusters, a sadly rare dynamic.) To be fair, it would be a hard sell to suggest she's better off with Eddie, a guy whose main hobbies are homicide, unintelligible yelling, and guzzling frozen Tater Tots straight from the bag.

When an outer space research vessel comes crashing to Earth with a sinister black goo aboard, the planet is ripe for invasion in director Ruben Fleischer's Venom. Indeed, it's hard not to evaluate the film in light of many comments from numerous people who made it - especially director Ruben Fleischer, who vacillated between saying the film was always going to be R- and PG-13-rated, and hedged in recent interviews about how deliberately amusing it's supposed to be - since the end result is stupefyingly incomprehensible. Together, they are capable of anything - a terrifying proposition as Venom is fueled by rage.

Netflix considering interactive films and TV shows
In December 2017, Netflix released a handful of episodes of choose-your-own-adventure animated programs designed for children. It's certainly attention-grabbing, and I could see the concept working on an extremely meta-level with Black Mirror .

I'm a Tom Hardy fan and as fun as it was seeing him argue with an alien being inside his head, this movie will just be a blip in his filmography.

Really, Sony and Marvel should have just called this origin story of Venom (the highly popular antihero/villain from many Spider-Man universes) Tom Hardy. Initially, he liked the power it gave him. And the old Jekyll-and-Hyde push-pull between civilized man and his inner animal remains intermittently entertaining and, every so often, quite telling.
