Venom Movie Trailer

"Whatever it is, you used to be one thing… and now you're something else." Sony Pictures has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the Venom solo movie, a new sort-of spin-off from the Sony Spider-Man universe, focusing on the fan-favorite symbiote villain character. Tom Hardy stars as journalist Eddie Brock in this movie, directed by Ruben Fleischer (of Zombieland, 30 Minutes or Less, Gangster Squad). As usual, Sony has released two trailers - a domestic and an international teaser trailer - to give us a quick introduction. There's some cool footage, but no actual shots of Venom (in full) revealed here yet. The full cast includes Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Riz Ahmed, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Lee, Sailor Larocque, Reid Scott, and a rumored appearance by Tom Holland as Spidey. I'm curious but still not entirely into this yet, maybe with some better footage, because I trust Fleischer knows what he's doing. Get a look below.

Here's the first teaser trailers (+ teaser poster) for Ruben Fleischer's Venom, direct from Sony's YouTube:

One of Marvel's most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen. From Wikipedia: Development on this Venom film, a spin-off from the Spider-Man franchise, first began with producer Avi Arad in 2007. After going through various iterations, an R-rated standalone film was confirmed in March of 2017. The intention was to begin a new shared universe featuring the Marvel characters to which Sony has the film rights, though Sony also intends for the film to share the world of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is set in the MCU because of a deal between Sony and Marvel Studios. Rosenberg and Pinkner were set to write, with Fleischer and Hardy brought on-board in May 2017. Filming began in October, in Atlanta and New York. Venom is directed by American filmmaker Ruben Fleischer, of Zombieland, 30 Minutes or Less, and Gangster Squad previously. The screenplay is written by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner, and Kelly Marcel. Sony releases Venom in theaters everywhere starting on October 5th this fall. First impression?

Good teaser. Don't show too much first time around.

I'm happy and mad they didn't show Tom as Venom ha. The teaser definitely teased, footage looks nice. I guess to me it's not distinctive. Like I believed this was going to be Sony's Deadpool in a way. Never said this but I need to see more.

Based on this teaser, this looks like a movie about a guy who had an accident and is having a really bad day.....

Yea, this was underwhelming.

Good enough and it's Tom hardy. I am in.

Tom Hardy is cool, but Venom is a shit character. I'll probably skip this one.

I'm in because it's Tom Hardy but that trailer was kind of lame.

Sean Taylor on Feb 8, 2018


Don't really know how to feel about this film yet. Until I see an actual full length theatrical trailer I'll reserve judgement. But I gotta say I'm not in the least bit excited for this film yet. Especially after hearing who the director's going to be. Hopefully that R-rating sticks and they give us something with a little more edge and substance, a la "Logan".

Cool stuff this! I kind of want one scored with Linkin Park's CRAWLING or a remixed version.

DAVIDPD on Feb 8, 2018


Another mindless fun film people are taking way too seriously. I watch it for fun, definitely not for art ...

First impression: I'm going to need a full trailer to get me excited about this movie. I was hoping for a glimpse of the Venom face at least. The footage here was nothing to get excited about! Pretty lame teaser.

Yeah, this almost could have been some other movie.

grimjob on Feb 8, 2018


The only difference in the trailers is the U.S. one says "this fall" and "October" where the international one says "this year" and "in IMAX" LOL Anyway, I'm intrigued, but I wonder how they could strike a deal for Marvel to make and Sony distribute Spidey films, and have him in the Avengers movies, and then still be able to include Tom Holland (if true) even in a cameo.
