A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
Originally, Tom Hardy was going to portray Venom in motion-capture visual effects, but that plan was scrapped because the facial features couldn't be imitated: "Your eyes and teeth and tongue are not going to match with his, and you need a seven-foot tall basketball player in a Lycra suit for the physical shots!" Venom is fully computer graphics imagery in the film.
However, Tom Hardy did perform as Venom on-camera in the costume of Brock, over which Venom was animated in key-frame to match the movements and stunts of Hardy. See more »
At the end when Eddie enters Mrs Chen's store, it is in the middle of the day, but when he exits the store only a few minutes later it is suddenly night time. See more »
We just came out of the theatre and I can honestly say. I liked it! It was funny and it paid great homage to the Todd McFarlane bombastic Venom era of the late 90's. It truly baffles me that Sony would not take enough risks to release the film with an R rating. I wonder how much of this film was left on the cutting floor!?! Tom Hardy's performance is also on point and...just go see it.
