'Venom' First Reviews: See What the Critics Are Saying

So during my recent interview with Fleischer I need to know exactly why "Venom" was ultimately rated PG-13. They then attempted to reboot the franchise with Andrew Garfield in the The Amazing Spider-Man movies, but once again something was off. As directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), it's not all that amusing, with Hardy topping out at a dry sarcasm and the jokes fitting safely into its PG-13 rating. Even to date while watching the movie on our television screens, we love it when the veteran actor says the dialogue.

The actor is signed on to play Eddie Brock in three Sony films, but Venom's box office performance this weekend will likely go a long way in determining whether he'll have a chance to sing and dance in a sequel.

"Well, if they didn't make it into the film..."

The film's producer Matt Tolmach added: "Everyone is asking us that". I took him right out there and played with it and had a lot of fun because there's a lot of fun you can have with a project and with this character and I've done that. So it's hard to decide just how serious Hardy is being. Well the volume of tweets from professional critics is admittedly a bit low so we don't have a huge sample size, but those that did choose to air their thoughts about them film are decidedly mixed.

We're not going to reveal what the scene is about but we will do a breakdown of the movie's ending and this mid-credits scene after the film opens October 5th. Eventually, though, Eddie crosses paths with the symbiote Venom and bada bing, you've got yourself an extraterrestrial antihero and a dynamic straight out of Little Shop of Horrors, between a man, generally disposed to helping humanity, and an alien who wants to eat people's heads.

Venom was first seen on screen in 2007's much derided Spider-Man 3, and "this cumbersome movie - so different from the recent nimble, populous and often genuinely amusing Marvel films - feels like something that should be facing off with Tobey Maguire".

This clip is a more detailed version of Venom vs SWAT scene.

"He was pretty much in the driving seat for a lot of it, and I did use him as my anthology and my mythology wizard", Hardy said.

Venom hits theatres on October 5th.

As you can see on the Rotten Tomatoes website, the current rating for Venom is a low 30% as of time of writing.
