Venom Trailer #3

venom

After showcasing some new footage at Comic-Con a couple of weeks ago, Sony has finally unveiled a brand new Venom trailer for the rest of the world to see. The trailer features our best look yet (and best pronunciation yet) of the alien symbiote including some new glimpses of various action sequences. We also get a bit more of Riz Ahmed’s character, now confirmed to be the villain Riot. Is Carnage also in the movie? That remains unclear but it’s worth noting we still have yet to see Woody Harrelson in any of the marketing. Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) and it hits theaters on Oct. 5th. Check out the new trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    So Venom is a thinly veiled metaphor for demonic possession? Superpowernormal Activity.

  • Jake

    I didn’t even know Woody Harrelson was in this. Was that a late addition to the cast for reshoots or something, like Antonio Banderas with The New Mutants?

  • Sean

    I don’t think he was a late addition but they’re obviously keeping his character under wraps for some reason which is why you haven’t heard much about it.

  • the villain Riot

    Mhm, the hero fights an evil version of himself. Intriguing. I like how Sony twists the usual formula.

  • john collins

    Looks fucking ridiculous. Why did Tom hardy get involved with this crap?

  • eliantigiorgi

    Why is eddie brock portrayed like a wuss?!

  • Tim

    huh? I mean, if you are thinking of a demonic possession (fictional, because they all are) where the possessor attacks only morally malevolent people due to a semi-friendly deal with the possessed.

  • Tim

    Almost there… the one liners from Venom are pretty good, the Venom voice is AWESOME from Hardy – listen to that pronunciation on “panc-ri-azz”. What is happening on ‘pancreas’, did Antonio Banderas give him a reading just for “panc-ri-azz”? That choice is worth 50% of his salary for this flick.

    I like him as smart but meek Eddie Brock, good contrast.

    Visually – the digital replicants in certain shots is BAD.

    (0:34) Why do his eyes go BLACK? Venom’s eyes are milky white. I’d rather see a subtle shape change and the white milky membrane.

    (1:20) Cartoons. I mean, I guess Roger Rabbit worked.

    (1:37)The criminal he is holding up the wide shot? Sorry, put the actor in a rig with a moving arm and make him look at the monster and be scared. That digital man is looking down, his legs are moving man, he’s not holding his arms up and out to try and push away from the monster? That’s just bad decision making.

    (1:49-1:51) ugh… Edward Norton Hulk level all-digital shot. Use a real analog plate with a real camera zoom and animate against that. I know movies aren’t real but can we fight against the tide of video games and movies being the exact same thing? Please? Spielberg has sold out to nobody’s benefit with RP1.

    (2:17-2:21) Awful… I don’t know if those are plates of the real actors but putting that in slow-mo long take is a big mistake – that’s saying to the audience -“hey, look, it’s CG”. David Fincher Mixing that much super-fake, computer lit CG with any sort of human semblance is as well.

    (2:47) I like the little smile at the end but again it’s just a mistake to mix this much shiny cgi with a human face, and again I think it’s not a filmed take of him but a digital recreation (or at least manipulated so much as to look digital), to no good end.

    I’m sure if anyone definitively knows whether demons are real or not, I’m sure it’s you Tim. I have no doubts of that. Just sayin though, trailer makes it look like a demon possession movie.

    Deals between the possessor and the possessed? No, I’ve never heard of any sort of deals made with the devil before. Not in all of history has there been such a story as that. Of course, I leave it to you Tim, the expert on all things theological to school us on the issue.
