Sony releases teaser trailer for Venom starring Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed
Sony Pictures Entertainment has released their first teaser trailer for, "Venom," starring Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed.
Hardy’s character awakens in an MRI machine in the hospital after what appears to be an accident — shown in bits and pieces in flashbacks.
“Everyone’s got their thing. Maybe it’s a breakup, a death, an accident. Whatever it is, you used to be one thing. Now, you’re something else,” he says in the voiceover. “We all have our own problems. Our own issues. Our own … demons.”
The teaser for the film, which doesn’t resemble a superhero tentpole, ends with Hardy’s Eddie Brock screaming at the top of his lungs as his body shakes in the machine. Brock doesn’t appear as his alter ego Venom in the footage.
Ruben Fleischer directs the movie, which also stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate, and Reid Scott.
Riz's character was guarded with secrecy for a while now but fan boys and girls can now confirm that he will be playing, "Dr. Carlton Drake." Check out a little bio form "The Marvel Database": Carlton Drake is the leader of Life Foundation. He hired to Professor Toshiro Mikashi to create The Arachnis Project. This project will help him to cure the cancer that is killing him. When he uses the serum in himself, the Homo Arachnis is created. Drake has an above average knowledge of symbiotes, able to surmise that the Venom symbiote contained five more "seeds," and subsequently extract them.
Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”) and Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”), and Kelly Marcel wrote the script. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal.
Created in 1988 by Marvel Comics, Venom is an alien symbiote that uses human hosts to survive. The character made his big-screen debut in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” where he was portrayed by Topher Grace.
“Venom” hits theaters on Oct. 5.
