Carnage Could Look Like This in Venom

The latest trailer for Sony's Venom was released earlier this week, giving fans their first long awaited look at the symbiote. Back at the beginning of the year, a teaser trailer was released for the movie a few weeks after production had wrapped and it really didn't go over very well with fans because it didn't show off the symbiote. However, the latest trailer gives us more action than before along with the symbiote, but now Marvel fans are wondering what Carnage will look like when he's revealed.

Artist BossLogic set out to solve the Carnage mystery after watching the latest Venom trailer and as with all of his work, it's awesome. While that art is unofficial, it's based off of the look of Tom Hardy's Venom, which isn't too different from what we've seen in the comics, which leads one to believe that BossLogic's rendering is pretty

Will Tom Hardy's Venom be the darkest ever Marvel movie?

The trailer for Sony’s first step into its new movie universe hints at a visceral grisliness very different to the Avengers’ smiling saviours

A penny for the thoughts of Sam Raimi, director of the original Spider-Man movies, should he have happened to watch the new trailer for Sony’s Venom this week. For the first instalment in the studio’s own Marvel universe looks like just the sort of movie Raimi would have chopped his own hand off to be given the chance of directing.

Raimi was cast aside by Sony after the critical drubbing received by 2007’s Spider-Man 3, even though that movie’s well-documented problems (mainly involving Venom) were allegedly not all of his making. He appears to have been in the directorial sin-bin since 2013’s middling Oz the Great and Powerful,

Venom Poster Has Tom Hardy in Harmony with the Symbiote

Venom Poster Has Tom Hardy in Harmony with the Symbiote
The official Venom poster is here. Sony is currently working on several Spider-Man spin-off movies that won't actually include the famed webslinger in them. Instead, these movies will center on other characters from Spidey's world, starting with the historically villainous Venom, as portrayed by Tom Hardy. Now, to go along with the reveal of the full-length Venom trailer, a new poster for the movie has arrived, featuring Tom Hardy working with the symbiote in harmony.

This poster is in many ways exactly what you might think it would be when you hear Tom Hardy is going to be playing Venom. The left half of the poster is his face as the character from the world of Marvel Comics and the other half is just Tom Hardy's as Eddie Brock. We can see a little bit of San Francisco in the background, since that's where at least part of the movie

Two Become One On This Stunning New Poster For Sony’s Venom Movie

“You should be extremely afraid…”

The symbiote’s officially out of the bag, folks. Two months after Sony’s initial (and somewhat disappointing) teaser for Venom, the Powers That Be have finally unleashed Eddie Brock’s demonic anti-hero, and he’s every bit as sinister and primal as you might expect.

Said to be attached to screenings of Avengers: Infinity War later this week – fitting, really, given they’re two of the most hotly anticipated comic book movies of 2018 – the Venom trailer actually included one or two shots of the alien symbiote wreaking havoc on Eddie’s mind and the hapless fools who dare get in his way.

And just like Ruben Fleischer promised, Tom Hardy looks set to deliver a tour-de-force performance as the crippled anti-hero – hell, he’s basically playing two characters at once. And it’s that bipolar nature that’s projected on the official first poster for Venom.

Venom Movie: Every Update You Need To Know

Venom brings the titular Marvel Comics character to the big screen for the first time since 2007’s Spider-Man 3 and stars Tom Hardy as reporter Eddie Brock. Directed by Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer, it’s being positioned as a launching pad for Sony’s own Marvel franchise – and may or may not be connected to the McU. We’ve collected everything you need to know about Venom, from its cast to story details.

Elizabeth Banks Throws Shade At Tom Hardy’s Venom Look

Spider-Man trilogy veteran Elizabeth Banks went on Twitter and threw some brutal shade at Tom Hardy’s Venom. In comic books, the evil alien symbiote Venom first merged with Spider-Man back in 1988, essentially turning Spidey into an evil twin type villain. The character later made his movie debut in Spider-Man 3 when he merged with host Eddie Brock, played by Topher Grace. Now, Venom gets his own movie starring Hardy as Eddie Brock, with Spider-Man likely nowhere to be seen (unless Peter Parker gets a surprise cameo).

Tom Hardy’s Stopped Fighting The Symbiote In Venom Poster

Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock surrenders to the power of the symbiote in the new teaser poster for Venom. Venom will be the first appearance for the comic villain since his ill-fated live-action debut in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. Raimi famously tried to resist using the character since he didn’t understand the appeal of Venom, but eventually gave into producer demands. Sadly, Topher Grace’s take on the role was widely rejected by fans, and Raimi clearly struggled with how to use the villain effectively.

Watch the New Trailer for Venom

After teasing fans earlier this year with a video that hid the full Venom reveal, everyone's favorite alien Symbiote is now on full display in the new trailer release from Sony.

In Venom, Tom Hardy stars as Eddie Brock, a man who becomes linked with an alien Symbiote that turns him into Venom, one of the ultimate villains in the Spider-Man universe. Although Venom and the Symbiote have a big influence on Spider-Man in the Marvel comic books, this film is expected to take place outside of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which includes the appearance by the web-slinger in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

Ruben Fleischer directed Venom from a screenplay by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, with Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal on board as producers. In addition to Hardy, Venom stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Reid Scott, and Jenny Slate.

Tom Hardy Debuts New ‘Venom’ Trailer at CinemaCon (Watch)

Tom Hardy Debuts New ‘Venom’ Trailer at CinemaCon (Watch)
Tom Hardy impressed the nation’s movie exhibitors with an extended showing of footage Monday night from Sony’s upcoming superhero movie “Venom.”

The film, which doesn’t resemble a superhero tentpole, began with Hardy’s Eddie Brock as a tough journalist dealing with Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed as he uncovers nefarious exploitation at a corporate entity — resulting in a subsequent visit at his run-down apartment from henchmen who are there to dispatch him.

At that point, Hardy transforms into Venom — a much-larger gooey alien symbiote with massive powers who quickly kills his attackers. Other footage showed a puzzled Eddie Brock wondering what has happened, then transforming back into the new character. “We are Venom” he proclaimed at the end of the footage.

The footage received by far the most positive response from Exhibitors at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for the opening night of the CinemaCon convention. Hardy

New Venom Trailer Is Dropping at CinemaCon This Week

New Venom Trailer Is Dropping at CinemaCon This Week
The brand-new trailer for Venom will be released tonight at CinemaCon, according to Tom Hardy. The first bits of footage that were released for the movie earlier this year weren't received very well by fans. There was a slight tease of the symbiote, but the rest of it looked like a regular action movie starring Hardy. The stakes are high for the new Venom trailer, and fans are hoping that we will get our first look at the symbiote and even further, fans are hoping that we get a Carnage tease this time around as well.

Tom Hardy took to Instagram over the weekend to announce that he was taking a break from working on Josh Trank's Fonzo and heading out to Las Vegas for CinemaCon to debut the new footage from Venom. Hardy stars as Eddie Brock and the host of the symbiote in the movie, which hits theaters this October.

Tom Holland Says There Are Currently No Plans For Spider-Man’s Black Suit In The McU

Avengers: Infinity War will see Spider-Man get himself a new upgraded suit in the form of the Iron Spider armor, as designed by Tony Stark. While that suit looks awesome and all – even coming with retractable spider-like limbs – the fact that the wall-crawler is getting a new costume so soon into his stint as part of the McU leaves us with the question of could another one of Spidey’s most famous outfits from the comics turn up as well?

Screen Rant recently quizzed Tom Holland on whether an appearance for Spider-Man’s black suit – which fans will know is actually the symbiote that becomes Venom – is on the cards in the future of the McU. Unfortunately, the actor was quick to quash the theory, as he revealed that it’s not something that’s ever been discussed “in the Disney studio.”

“The black suit hasn’t even been a discussion.

Sorry, Sony: ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Is Not Your Studio’s Biggest Hit

With $403.7 million as of April 11, Sony declared “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is its biggest-ever domestic hit, passing the figure “Spider-Man” achieved in its 2002 run. Of course, this is complete nonsense.

Assessing box office without adjustment is like the Labor Dept. calculating the consumer price index without correcting for inflation. Today’s average ticket price bears no resemblance to those of prior decades. And, unlike books and downloads, which track not the price tag but the units sold, North American movies sales are calculated solely by revenue. European cinemas track both admissions and ticket sales, presumably to avoid this problem. The North American system leads to a lot of skewed figures, and announcements like Sony’s.

None of this should diminish the unexpectedly strong response to the “Jumani” sequel. The reboot of the very strong 1995 Robin Williams-starrer doubled the most optimistic expectations with its Christmas release. The film had

What Will Tom Hardy’s Venom Look Like?

Sony’s taking a big risk with Venom, their first foray into stand-alone films starring Spider-Man’s rogues gallery, but not the wall-crawler himself. Like the upcoming Silver & Black, Venom may or may not be set in the McU. There’s a lot riding on the Ruben Fleischer-directed film, as it’s one of very few R-rated superhero films, and one of fewer still which focuses on a primarily villainous character. Furthermore, Venom is a fan-favorite anti-hero, and his fanbase is very wary of attempts to translate him from the page to the screen; Sam Raimi played a key role in the modern superhero renaissance, and even he couldn’t quite nail the character. Fans generally rejected Topher Grace’s take on Eddie Brock in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, but Sony is giving it another shot.

Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman Gets a Late Summer 2018 Release Date

Focus Features has announced that Academy Award winning director Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman will open in theaters later this summer on August 10, 2018 starring previously announced John David Washington, Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Inside Llewyn Davis), Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming), and Topher Grace (Traffic, Spider-Man 3).

From visionary director Spike Lee comes the provocative story based on Ron Stallworth's real life as Colorado Springs's first African-American police officer who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Unbelievably, Detective Stallworth (John David Washington) and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) penetrate the Kkk at its highest levels to thwart its attempt to take over the city. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award&#174 winning Get Out, Spike Lee uses his trademark take-no-prisoner style and humor to tell this story often missing from the history books.

BlacKkKlansman is being produced by Sean McKittrick and Raymond Mansfield for QC Entertainment,

This Scene From Spider-Man 3 With "Realistic" Audio Will Make You Violently Uncomfortable

In today's "This Fills Me With So Much Secondhand Embarrassment I Need to Leave the Room" news, an old, remixed clip from Spider-Man 3 is once again making the rounds on the internet. Now, while Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy holds a very special place in my heart, I've long been of the opinion that the third film's detour into Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) becoming a "cool" guy after coming into contact with Venom is a campy misstep. Case in point: a scene where Peter struts his stuff on the streets of New York City, pointing finger guns at the women he passes as jazzy music plays in the background. I truly thought there was no possible way to make the scene more uncomfortable, but now I know I was wrong. Horribly, painfully wrong. Some poor, twisted soul went ahead and replaced the music in the background with "realistic" audio (think: snapping,

Rumor: We May Not Actually See Much Of Venom In His Own Movie

Despite leaving myself open to verbal thrashings from friends and readers online alike, I’ve been honest in admitting that Venom is one of the comic book movies I’m looking forward to most in 2018. After missing the mark with the iconic character in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, surely Sony would have to do a better job with a solo outing, right?

Well, if recent chatter is to be believed, then those of you in the same boat as I have reason to go in with lowered expectations.

You see, former IGN editor Jeremy Conrad has broken down an alleged plot synopsis that’s surfaced online – one which he didn’t provide in full, mind you – but there were a variety of details to mull over, regardless. As such, we advise you to take the following with a grain of salt as you normally would in cases such as this, but we can’t help thinking,

Topher Grace to star in faith-based drama The Impossible

Deadline is reporting that Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3, War Machine) has been cast in The Impossible, an upcoming faith-based drama from Fox 2000, which is being directed by Roxann Dawson.

The film is based upon Joyce Smith’s book and will see Grace as Pastor Jason Noble, “the small town’s new hip man of God who helps the mother of a drowned son through this horrific time, galvanizing the town.”

Also featuring in the cast of the film are Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Marcel Ruiz and Isaac Kragten.

Fox 2000 scored a hit this past weekend with its faith-based feature I Can Only Imagine, which pulled in $17 million at the North American box office.

Grace has recently wrapped filming on Under the Silver Lake alongside Andrew Garfield, and also stars in Spike Lee’s Black Klansman, where he plays a white supremacist.

All The News From The Bruce Campbell Panel At Walker Stalker Con London

Bruce Campbell at Walker Stalker Con London

Horror icon Bruce Campbell took to the panel stage in London this past weekend to host a Q and A with attendees of the third annual Walker Stalker Con. This was an opportunity for fans of Bruce to ask all their burning questions, and they didn’t waste a single minute. During the hour-long panel he shared many a story, here of some of the highlights:

The future of Ash Vs Evil Dead looks uncertain…

The first question of the panel began with the words ‘In Ash Vs Evil Dead…’ at which point Bruce Campbell, perhaps jokingly, interjected with ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead, the television show that’s about to be cancelled’. This revelation was met with resounding boos to which Campbell retorted – ‘Don’t cry for me Argentina. If you don’t pay for Starz, they’re gonna cancel it.’ At several
