Venom Towers Over San Francisco On Awesome New Poster

The alien symbiote at the center of the upcoming Venom movie has a pretty twisted diet that apparently includes the heads of trembling criminals, so it only figures that he would have the menacing tongue to match, right?

That’s something which is on full display on the latest poster for Sony’s spinoff, which is quickly approaching its October 5th release date, and don’t we know all about it. In the past few weeks, the studio’s brought us a whole bunch of promo material – TV spots, photos, posters, you name it – and their marketing barrage continues today with a new one-sheet that you can see down below.

Featuring the titular symbiote towering over the Golden Gate Bridge, with Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed and Michelle Williams pictured under him, it’s far from the most spectacular poster you’ll ever lay eyes on, but it’s another welcome

New Venom Trailer Sees Eddie Brock Letting The Devil In

“I’m Eddie Brock. I’m a reporter.”

By this point, those words should be burned into your brain as Sony seemingly loves starting off pretty much every trailer for Venom with that very line. Honestly, it’s becoming more of a tagline for the film than the ominous “we are Venom.”

Repetition aside, it’s always nice to see the studio dropping some new footage, and with the pic’s release quickly approaching, TV spots are now beginning to circulate as we inch closer and closer to opening weekend. That continues today, too, with the latest Venom trailer arriving online to give Eddie Brock a chance to let the devil in, so to speak.

Featuring the song that Eminem wrote for the film, there’s not much in the way of new footage here, but it still serves as a nice little teaser of what’s to come. That being said,

October Box Office Gets A Makeover: ‘Venom’ Poised To Swing To $60M-$70M+ Opening; ‘A Star Is Born’ Eyes $25M+

  • Deadline
There’s money in that first weekend of October and studios have been tapping the frame for some time, trying to pump more and more out of it. Gravity took the frame to a record opening with $55.7M in 2013 and 20th Century Fox came close with The Martian three years ago when it debuted to $54.3M. Further proof of how studios want to turn this October weekend into a serious blockbuster playground: Warner Bros. has Todd Phillip’s DC Joker movie scheduled for Oct. 4 next year.

This year though Gravity‘s opening record is bound to be shattered finally as Sony opens its Marvel title Venom on Oct. 5,but there’s bound to be even more traffic from Warner Bros. awards season darling A Star Is Born. Both hit tracking this morning and industry estimates are wild for Venom ranging from $60M-$70M+. Sony insiders are being conservative noting that

30 Unused Spider-Man Concept Art Designs Better Than What We Got

Everybody has their favorite superhero, but there is no denying that Spider-Man is one of the most popular crime fighters. He first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 in August 1962 and was created by Stan Lee and the late Steve Ditko.

Spider-Man can do anything a spider can including the abilities to climb up walls, super-human strength, speed and agility as well as a precognitive spider-sense.

Spider-Man has not only appeared in the pages of comic books for years, but has also been the star of multiple TV shows and films.

In the early 2000s, San Raimi crafted his Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man. The films brought in a lot of money for Sony and Spider-Man even stood as their all-time highest grossing film until Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was released in 2017.

While all three films brought Sony a lot of money, Spider-Man 3

New to Netflix in September: ‘Black Panther,’ ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’

Ah, movies. Remember those, Netflix viewers? Because why binge every episode of “Queer Eye” when you could do a “Black Panther,” “Spider-Man 3,” and “The Breakfast Club” triple-header? It would take just as much time and be much more educational.

All three are heading to the streaming giant next month, along with “The Cider House Rules,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” and “Groundhog Day.” Netflix gets into the comedy game with originals, including Sanaa Lathan in “Nappily Ever After” and “Sierra Burgess Is A Loser,” starring Shannon Purser of “Stranger Things” and “Riverdale” fame.

Venom Trailer Gets Recut With Topher Grace As The Symbiote

Aside from each successive trailer for Venom looking even more badass than the one to have preceded it, one thing about the film that’s reassured my confidence in the final product is that of Tom Hardy’s casting. In my view, he always brings something special to his performances, and I still feel his turn as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises was one of the best things about that particular movie.

Conversely, I was one among many who had misgivings regarding Topher Grace being hired to play Eddie Brock over a decade ago in Spider-Man 3. Though I loved him on That 70’s Show, it was quite difficult picturing him as the iconic villain. Ultimately, the concluding chapter in Sam Raimi’s trilogy fell flat for a number of reasons, so it’s unfair to pin everything on a single actor.

Venom Battles Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man In Awesome Fan Trailer

We’re so close to the release of Venom that you can practically smell the toxicity in the air. And although we’ll undoubtedly get a live-action adaptation of the sinister symbiote worthy of the antagonistic moniker – due in large part to typically magnetic work from Tom Hardy – whether or not everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be stopping by, does remain to be seen.

The latest intel on the situation, according to director Ruben Fleischer, is the titular web-head will not be apart of the cantankerous Klyntar’s first solo venture. Naturally, however, that hasn’t stopped the fandom from envisioning what Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock locked in battle with various Spider-Men could look like.

After all, Hardy did have a choice word or two for the current portrayer of the eponymous web-slinger, Tom Holland, last month at Sdcc, and seeing as such a showdown has even been teased by Fleischer himself,

Venom will be rated PG-13 as Sony still hopes for a Spider-Man / McU crossover

Although early reports had suggested that Sony Pictures would be going down the R-rated route with its first entry in what is being referred to as ‘Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters‘, Variety is reporting that the upcoming Venom movie will instead look to “push the very limits of PG-13 without crossing over into a higher rating.”

According to the report, Sony executives are still hopeful that Venom and the other instalments in this new shared superhero/supervillain universe may one day cross over with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and/or the Marvel Studios-owned Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The thinking is that if Venom proved to be too dark and gory, it could prevent any possible future crossover with Spider-Man, given that the wall-crawler is a much more family friendly character, and the McU is yet to venture beyond the PG-13 rating.

What’s Next for the Spider-Man Universe After ‘Venom’ (Exclusive)

  • Variety
What’s Next for the Spider-Man Universe After ‘Venom’ (Exclusive)
Venom,” the highly anticipated comic book adaptation that hits theaters in October, isn’t just an attempt to do justice to the legendary symbiote after a lackluster appearance in 2007’s “Spider-Man 3.” It’s also a big-budget bet by Sony Pictures that the world of Spider-Man can spawn an inter-connected series of superhero movies to rival what Disney has created with its Marvel characters and what Warner Bros. is attempting to pull of with its DC Comics heroes and villains.

With Disney’s acquisition of Fox’s film studio, Sony is now the only major studio outside of the Magic Kingdom with the licensing rights to Marvel characters. Fox has long had rights to “Fantastic Four” and “The X-Men,” pillars of the Marvel empire, that will now thanks to the magic of a multi-billion dollar corporate merger, be able to interact with Captain America, Iron Man, and other members of the Avengers.

Topher Grace Was Surprised Sony Wanted Him To Play Venom

Despite what some naysayers may have to offer, Venom has remained among my most anticipated comic book movies to drop in 2018. Sure, the studio may be foregoing any connection to Spider-Man, but that doesn’t detract from how the film looks positively badass in the slightest.

With that in mind, one must remember the first time that Sony brought Eddie Brock to the big screen, that being in 2007’s Spider-Man 3. Having been shoehorned into the script by the Powers That Be, it’s quite apparent that the character was superfluous, but who are we to question the infallible wisdom of Hollywood execs?

When it came to casting, it’s not like we had the Tom Hardy of today, but rather, Topher Grace, who’d been mostly known for comedic roles to that point. Funny enough, even Grace himself can express confusion in hindsight, doing just that during a recent

Topher Grace recently stopped just shy of admitting that Tom Hardy’s Venom from Venom will be better than his Venom from Spider-Man 3, but maybe the secret to Hardy’s apparent success is the eclectic influences he kept in mind while coming up with his take on the goopy, brain-eating, Marvel villain.

Spider-Man 3’s Topher Grace is “really excited” to see Tom Hardy as Venom

It’s fair to say that Venom’s first big screen outing wasn’t quite what fans of Marvel’s symbiote were hoping for, with Sony pressuring director Sam Raimi to include fan favourite villain in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, which saw Topher Grace taking on the role of Eddie Brock.

By Raimi’s own admission, he “didn’t really believe in the character” and it was evident on screen that Venom had been shoehorned into the movie, coming across as an afterthought. However, Sony now has a chance to redeem itself with the upcoming solo movie, and Topher Grace has revealed to Inverse that he’s very excited to see what Tom Hardy does in the role.

“To me — I truly mean this — I think Tom is the guy to play that role,” said Grace. “I’m thrilled to watch it as a fan. I really mean that. I think

Topher Grace Can't Wait to Watch Tom Hardy as Venom

Topher Grace Can't Wait to Watch Tom Hardy as Venom
Topher Grace's version of Eddie Brock in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 wasn't exactly what comic book fans were looking for and many considered the film to be a major letdown. Raimi has admitted that he didn't have complete creative control while working on Spider-Man 3, which led to the failure of the movie at the box office. Now, Sony is preparing to launch the standalone Venom film and Grace says that he's "really excited to see" what Tom Hardy is able to do with the character.

Sony's Venom is going to be the first time that the character has been on the big screen since Spider-Man 3 when Topher Grace was Eddie Brock and the symbiote. While Grace's version of the character gets a bad rap, he's still a major fan and says that Tom Hardy is the best actor for the role. Additionally, Grace says that he's

Topher Grace Says Tom Hardy Is the Right Actor to Play Venom, and He Really Means It: ‘He’s Just the Best Dude’
Tom Hardy is taking on the title role in a comic book movie for the first time with this fall’s Sony tentpole “Venom,” but it isn’t the first time the anti-hero has graced the big screen. Topher Grace brought Eddie Brock/Venom to life at the movies in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” although critics weren’t too kind to the film or Grace’s late introduction as the film’s third primary antagonist. So how does Grace feel about Hardy taking over his role in a “Venom” standalone movie? Quite thrilled, actually.

“To me — I truly mean this — I think Tom is the guy to play that role,” Grace recently told Inverse about Hardy. “I’m thrilled to watch it as a fan. I really mean that. I think he’s just the best dude.”

Spider-Man 3’s Topher Grace Says Tom Hardy Is The Better Venom

Though some might have issues with what we’ve seen in the trailers so far, it’s fair to say that most fans are more pleased with Tom Hardy’s version of Eddie Brock from the upcoming Venom solo movie than the one we got from Spider-Man 3 just over a decade ago.

Topher Grace’s interpretation was never well received by Spidey lovers for the divergences from the classic comic book depiction of the villain, and it turns out this judgement that Hardy trumps Grace is actually supported by Grace himself, too. While talking to Inverse to promote his new movie, BlacKkKlansman, the star revealed that he thinks Hardy’s born to play Venom and is excited to get to watch him in action when the film arrives this October.
