Venom Takes Over Tom Hardy's Luscious Lips In New Trailer

Hardy stars here as investigative reporter Eddie Brock who is on the trail of Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), head of the Life Foundation, an organization which houses a number of alien symbiotes that they use to perform risky scientific experiments on humans. In the Ruben Fleischer-directed film, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is an investigative journalist who discovers questionable experiments conducted on human test subjects by the Life Foundation. Sadly, one day he gets infected by a murderous, psychopathic alien symbiote who turns his arms into stretchy, pointy tendrils, making his hugs extremely deadly.

Now, though, we have our first proper look at Hardy, symbiote and all, in the new trailer below.

Sony Pictures officially released the second trailer for its most-awaited upcoming venture Venom, which stars Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed. One of three villains in the overstuffed threequel, with just a few minutes of screen time, this Venom was widely viewed as shoehorned into the last of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies, and fans were not impressed.

"Venom" will release on October 5 in United States and United Kingdom.

It is possible that Sony's latest Venom movie might try to approach it from a grittier angle (think Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy), and the trailer certainly seems to hint at that.

Venom is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with Spider-Man.

When it comes to Venom's overall look, both versions are similar in terms of being bulky, black and, well, gooey - all traits that faithfully reflect the comic version. In Spider-Man 3, Topher Grace's Eddie Brock changes into Venom and plays the guy Peter Parker fights off. While Brock has something of a moral code, he's also fragile enough to be manipulated and the alien symbiote who clings to him is a rather malevolent entity, unconcerned by bloodletting or property damage.
