With The Predator now in theaters, the next big event film is October 5's Venom, which is currently tracking for an opening weekend in the $60-70 million range. The Tom Hardy fronted film also now has an official rating, and to no one's surprise, the film will be PG-13, following in the footsteps of other neutered comic book films like Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Suicide Squad.

You would think, in the post Deadpool & Logan world, these companies would've realized there's a market for R rated comic book movies. Apparently there's a reason, though not a very good one, for the kid friendlier rating...

This new TV spot doesn't give us much in the way of new footage, but it is set to that ridiculous Eminem theme song. Every time I think I want to see this movie, I just listen to that theme song and am reminded of what a terrible, terrible idea that was...

If nothing else, the film's 112 minute running time—that's right kids, a comic book movie UNDER two hours. That's cause for celebration, I suppose.

Venom opens on October 5.
