Sink your teeth into the trailer for the Spider-Man spin-off, ‘Venom’

It’s time to get a little dark in the “Venom” Trailer”

Sony released the trailer the upcoming spin-off movie for the “Spider-Man” franchise. Yep, the franchise that can’t even decide what they want it to be after the countless number of films finally has a spin-off. One would think nailing down a direction would be first on the list, but I guess that why I don’t work in the film industry. Also, are we just going to forget that Venom was in the awful “Spider-Man 3?”

“Venom” stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist that is infected with an alien symbiote that bonds with Brock and tries to help Brock reach his potential. Typically in the Marvel universe, the Venom character has been a villain. Most famously, Venom is the one of the archenemies of Spider-Man. Since it’s in the Sony Marvel Universe, Venom is going with the anti-hero route. The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer, who is best known for his first feature film “Zombieland.”

“Venom” doesn’t look your typical superhero/Marvel film. The trailer does give off this extremely gritty vibe to it. The film doesn’t have a rating yet, but don’t be surprised if it doesn’t have an R rating. The way that the movie looks to be shoot and presented is one that would terrify the children that go to this movie with their unexpecting parents. Marvel seems to be trying to give the movies like this one that rating after the success of “Deadpool” and “Logan.”

This is the first trailer to include the first look at the Venom suit. The suit itself look like extremely badass and frankly, quite terrifying. It’s the thing that nightmares make when you take a bunch acid mixed with heroin. It wouldn’t be Venom if he didn’t terrify people. The movie does look like it will be extremely good.

Venom will be out in theatres on October 5th, 2018.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ trailer is here!

After five movies, three of which was decently good, Marvel has released the new trailer for the second attempt to reboot the Spider-Man movie franchise. The Spider-Man movie franchise has had more reboots than any Hollywood plastic surgery would recommend without a psychological exam but hey, it ain’t my reboot.

Unlike “Spider-Man” and “The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming” won’t be an origin story because you’ve already heard that shit before #continuity. The movie takes places after the events of  “Captain America: Civil War,” and follows the hero Peter Parker as he tries to come into his own as an adequate superhero while having a social life. Peter isn’t doing this alone either, he’s mentor is the one and only Tony Stark. So we have a smartass mentoring a smartass because that’s cinematic comedy gold.

The trailer actually did a very good job of setting up the plot, the characters and the dynamic for the movie. It looked really good. Of course, I thought the same about “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” trailer and look what that left me. I feel like the only reason we have Tony Stark in the movie is to make sure the movie warrants a sequel. Yes, there already planning to do a sequel. While I like they actually worked him into the plot, I think they probably go have done without him. Sure, he might have given him the suit but he really isn’t necessary to mentor him. There are plenty of other Avengers to mentor him. Like Hawkeye, give Hawkeye something to do because he’s the black sheep of superheroes.

Marvel also decided to continue to with British actors portraying Spider-Man with the casting of Tom Holland. He does a very good job here, I just wish they would stick with a concept of how they want to portray Spider-Man because frankly, I’m starting to think they don’t know what to do with Peter. In the first three films, he was nerdy.  Then in the first reboot, Peter was the hunky boy next door. In this one, he’s a sarcastic asshole. They just need to stick to how they want Peter to be. It’s getting to the point where it’s hurting the character than helping it. Personally, I enjoyed Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker more than Toby McGuire’s.  I didn’t want to punch him in the face so much.  He also had a very nice face but that’s beside the point. It would also be nice to see them openly acknowledge the many Peter Parkers because that would be funny.

Overall, the trailer is a great trailer for a Marvel’s struggle bus franchise. Hopefully, this would be the last reboot of Spider-Man because I’m tired of the many faces of Peter Parker and his multiple personalities. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” will be in theaters July 7, 2017.

Here’s the trailer for you to enjoy and look at:
