TV & FILM

The more we see from the new movie Venom, the more it seems like it's not going to be the total disaster we all thought when the film was first announced. This latest trailer—which debuted at San Diego Comic Con earlier this month—is the best one yet, making the character of Venom seem like he might actually be able to carry his own film.
After an absolutely stupid looking teaser and a mildly better but still pretty lame first trailer, this new trailer finally gives us a taste of what's going on in the film. Intrepid reporter Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) finds himself mixed up in some experimental tech being created by Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), and it isn't long before Eddie is overtaken by the symbiote that transforms him into Venom.
There's some quick looks at the character Drake turns into, which in this film is Riot, and his battle with Venom at the end of the trailer looks pretty epic. Still no sign of Woody Harrelson, who is rumored to be playing Cletus Kasady, the character who becomes Carnage, but it looks like there's plenty of other stuff going on in the film that he may be more setup for a sequel than anything else. I'd expect him to become Carnage in a stinger scene at this point.
Venom opens on November 5.
