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
