View the Official Final Trailer for 'Venom' below:
We begin with Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) on his motorbike- which we see later on, in what looks to be a European city, could this be Brock on one of his news reports (Brock is a reporter in 'Venom').
Speaking of Eddie Brock, here he is, played by the wonderful Tom Hardy who will also be voicing Venom itself in the 2018 film.
This is the second symbiote we have seen in the trailers, could this be the one that causes Riz Ahmed's character Carton Drake of the sinister 'Life Foundation', to turn into Riot? Riot is rather different to other symbiotes; while most remain bonded to a single person, he moves from host to host, bonding with anyone in order to find its target. Venom's director Ruben Fleischer explained, "He has a unique trait. You don't know where Riot is going to turn up."
Brock is seen here, seemingly in pain and struggling to cope with the troublesome Venom growing in strength within him.
Here we enter the Life Foundation Headquaters with Ahmed's character Carton Drake sacrificing one of his workers to the effects of the symbiote in the laboratory. We see the effects of this below, and trust me, this is arguably one of the most disgusting snapshots I have ever had to discuss...
I mean, I told you it was disgusting. But it's cool though! *silently vomits*
The victim is played by Reid Scott, who is rumoured to be playing Patrick Mulligan, who becomes the host for the symbiote Toxin. It may be that this better-known character is being brought in as a replacement for either Agony or Lasher.
One of the more confusing scenes is this one, involving Eddie lay on the operating table, presumably after the accident seen throughout the trailers cuts. We see Venom 'flickering' in and out of Brock's body, in a mutative manner. Make of this what you will...
Here we see Eddie riding the same motorbike from the beginning of the trailer, with Venom pushing the cars either side of them away to make room for the big entrance, or to just cause chaos and destruction- I mean, it is Venom.
As Brock rightly puts it, 'We cannot just hurt people'. However, the way Venom see's it, 'We can do whatever we want'
Venom has formed its own entity as it protrudes from Eddie and gives him some serious competition for a staring contest- or should we say scaring contest, Venom truly is frightening as he becomes more and more powerful throughout.
As Brock transforms into complete Venom, we see him threaten his soon-to-be supper. He threatens him with a line directly from the comics: "Eyes, Lungs, Pancreas...so many snacks, so little time!".
See the comic panel below:
We then see Venom in full form clambering across what looks to be some form of bridge or highway, and facing off against a potential foe- Riot, who we see later in the trailer.
We also see Venom ripping apart some form of vehicle or construction, although we aren't sure what this is, it surely shows how powerful Venom is becoming.
One key sequence in the new Venom trailer focuses on a woman overtaken with the symbiote, creating a blade with her arm and firing spikes from her back. This is a mix of Phage and Lasher's powers from the Marvel comics, although that's not the symbiote shown here in the trailer. This is Michelle Lee, who's credited as playing Donna Diego aka Scream in Venom.
This is our first look at Riot in his full form, which shows a previously seen piece of footage from the teaser trailer now filled with the CGI symbiote portrayed by Riz Ahmed. We all wondered what that weird shot was from the teaser- at least we now have an answer. In the scene, we see Riot creating huge scythe like weapons with his arms and destroying the office space of presumably the Life Foundation- just another day at the office, eh?
This easy to miss scene shows Eddie Brock falling through flames and quickly transforming into Venom- who knows what's causing the blaze behind them, but its undoubtedly going to cause some serious carnage.
Here we have CGI, I mean, Venom and Riot battling it out in the skyline, ripping each others symbiote suits apart revealing Brock and Drake underneath. This is undoubtedly the final act battle, and ASO are surprised that showed this scene in the trailer.
I'll let Venom do the talking here, he pretty much sums up everything I'm thinking about this trailer:
"We will eat both you arms and then both of your legs and then we will eat your face, and bite off your head. You will be this armless, legless, faceless thing, won't you, rolling down the street like a turd in the wind"
Although we can expect the 'turd' to turn into something a little more expletive by the time Venom hits theatres.
We finish with the wonderful line,
WE ARE VENOM

According to Deadline, the Disney-Fox merger decision was made in about 10 minutes and 99 percent of shareholders co-signed with only a single person objecting saying that Disney was spending too much money.
Initially, Disney offered Fox $54 billion, but Comcast submitted a much larger counter offer before subsequently bowing out of the competition, leaving Disney with a $71.3 billion deal.
Gerson Zweifach, general counsel of 21st Century Fox, told Fox shareholders the merger is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019. He hailed the deal as a "transformative transaction that will enable us to unlock significant value for our stockholders."
Some of the assets now owned by Disney will include the 20th Century Fox studio, FX Networks, National Geographic Partners, and other entertainment assets. After the sale, Rupert Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch will head the company now dubbed New Fox, which will comprise Fox Broadcasting Co. and Fox’s TV station group, Fox Sports and Fox News.
Bob Iger stated "We’re incredibly pleased that shareholders of both companies have granted approval for us to move forward, and are confident in our ability to create significant long-term value through this acquisition of Fox’s premier assets. We remain grateful to Rupert Murdoch and to the rest of the 21st Century Fox board for entrusting us with the future of these extraordinary businesses, and look forward to welcoming 21st Century Fox’s stellar talent to Disney and ultimately integrating our businesses to provide consumers around the world with more appealing content and entertainment options."

After last weekends short teaser, many were left underwhelmed as we were not shown any 'actual' footage from the new series. However, all has changed as we finally have our very first full trailer for the new series. A Space Oddity is here to break down every exciting scene!
Make sure you come back to find out more San Diego Comic Con news and breakdowns!
View the trailer below:
We begin with the Doctor waking up on a sofa, which immediately gives off David Tennant 'The Christmas Invasion' vibes. Will the Doctor spend time out in her first episode after her fall in 2017's Christmas Special 'Twice Upon A Time'? Who knows...
We then see 3 shots of our brand new companions: Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Graham (Bradley Walsh). See below:
We next get a good look at the new worlds on offer in the new series...
And the new times... Could this be our first look at the heavily rumoured Bus Boycott episode featuring Rosa Parks?
We then see Jodie Whittaker glowing with regeneration energy still wearing her predecessor, Peter Capaldi's clothing. Could this possibly be when she first hits the ground after falling out the TARDIS?
Us at ASO are pretty baffled at what's happening in this scene, Thirteen is screaming in pain and holding her head in her hands, however looking at the lens flares given off on this scene, it's presumed this isn't the first episode as you don't get that type of sunlight in Sheffield!
We then get another look at Bradley Walsh's character of Graham, one of three new best-friends of the Doctor!
Speaking of best friends, here we have the money shot! The gorgeous shot of them in what seems to be the same Rosa Parks episode (rumoured to be Episode 2), standing in formation.
Now this scene seems to be set in the first episode, as the Doctor is still wearing the 12th Doctor's shirt and waistcoat. ASO presume the Doctor could be forging either new TARDIS keys or her new Sonic Screwdriver!
We then see a few quick shots of the four riding horseback and walking through dark tunnels.
Our second money shot! Silhouettes of the four stood on a gorgeous landscape overlooking the ocean and mountain range- akin to that of the promotional material released early this year.
We very quickly get a glimpse of the new sonic, which is now available to pre-order!
After a few more action shots, the trailer closes with the amazing Jodie Whittaker saying 'Right, this is gonna be fun!" and we couldn't agree more!
In related news, show-runner Chris Chibnall has stated that this series will feature no 2-parter episodes, with each of the 10 episodes being interlinked however remaining standalone. And further talk from Chris Chibnall has supported that Doctor Who will get a Christmas special this year. The Christmas episode is not part of the 10 episodes filmed for Series 11.
Chris Chibnall also confirmed that we will not be seeing the Daleks this series as he wants to 'focus on new monsters and villains'.
Speaking at this years San Diego comic convention, Chibnall claimed: "We've been making this show in secret- very deliberately in secret- since October last year. This is like our coming-out party".
He added: "All the crew who'd been working on the show for years, saw Jodie in action and one day said, "She's the Doctor"
"They're written so well, there's so much in the characters. There was so much in the script that I didn't need to do an awful lot, I just needed to turn up and have fun. Yaz is a 19 year old girl from Sheffield. She enjoys her job but she thinks she can do a little bit more, so she asks for a little bit more, and she GETS a little bit more. So she gets whisked away on this adventure" said new friend of the Doctor, Mandip Gill on playing Yasmin aka Yaz.
Jodie also spoke about her first day on set: "I was in someone else's costume & someone else's TARDIS & I was afraid to touch anything"

Finally! It is here! The very first Doctor Who Series 11 teaser trailer that fans have been eagerly waiting for, since December 2017. The wait is well and truly over, and this is our review.
See the gorgeous trailer below:
Let's begin with our thoughts. Wow. The cinematography is amazing. The first thing you notice when the trailer opens is how superbly shot the promo is, the lighting, the camera position, everything about it is stunning. The promotional video harks back to previous ones such as the 'Time For Heroes' promo released for Series 10 and Matt Smith's debut appearance for the Series 5 promo involving the Doctor and Amy flying through the vortex and facing new and old foes.
It's presumed that the full trailer will be revealed this Thursday at San Diego Comic Con, so stay tuned! Anyway, let's discuss what happens in the trailer:
The trailer begins with Ryan, played by Tosin Cole (formerly of EastEnders & Hollyoaks) sat in a cafe watching the World Cup final. In the background you can hear the commentary cleverly saying:
"They have great chemistry, out of this world, they have the makings of a really strong team!" - Well played, BBC.
We then see Mandip Gill's character (Formerly of Hollyoaks) Yasmin with friends sharing pizza, as they run out, the Doctor sweeps in and brings her a fresh one- couldn't we all do with a Doctor like that?
Penultimately, we see Graham, played by UK comedian and actor Bradley Walsh. Here we see him sat in what seems to be the pub, reading the newspaper. However with the intrusion of the Doctor, she swaps it with the Beano magazine.
Finally we see our Doctor, our brand new Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, smiling as her work here is done. Who can resist a smile like that!
One last factor to commend is the gorgeous musical score behind the teaser, could this be, new composer, Segun Akinola's first work for the series? Time will tell!
Expect more exciting Doctor Who news this Thursday 20th July, at San Diego Comic Con! Come back for our breakdowns of all trailers, news and reveals!

First up we have Dwayne Johnson's response to the feud between himself and Tyrese Gibson. While on the Andy Cohen show the Jumanji star was answering callers questions and one caller asked if he had ever spoken to Gibson after the feud began over the Fast & Furious spinoff. Johnson replied " No, we haven't talked at all" he continued on to say:
" That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I had been friends with Tyrese for a very long time, I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was pretty one-sided and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media. Apparently, he was going through some stuff, too, in his personal life. But, no, we haven’t talked and I don’t see where we would and, to me, there’s no need to have a conversation."
It started on Instagram when Gibson claimed that Johnson was selfishly " making the Furious and franchise about himself."
With Idris Elba being cast as the main villain the in spinoff 'Hobbs and Shaw' be sure to stay tuned for any more news on the Fast & Furious franchise.
Joaquin Phoenix has finalised the deal that will make him Batman's arch nemesis the Joker. The film is set to start filming in september in New York. Todd Phillips co-wrote the script and said it is an "exploration of a man disregarded by society, it is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale." The films budget is $55 million which is considerably lower than other comic book movies which dominate the box office. Apparently the film is darker and more experimental in tone and content. The film is a standalone project and the earliest it will be released is late 2019.
We have all the Nominations for the Primetime Emmy's:
