Sony Unveils New Trailer for Tom Hardy’s ‘Venom’ at CinemaCon

Tom Hardy appeared at opening night of CinemaCon on Monday evening to show off a new trailer for his upcoming film featuring everyone’s favorite symbiote, Venom! The new clip features the first footage of Hardy in the iconic costume, as well as more hints as to what the movie will be about.

Based on the new footage, it’s clear that Hardy’s Eddie Brock  will be the deeply conflicted anti-hero from the pages of the comic book. While there’s certainly an explosion or two, the trailer shows this film is going to have a darker tone than your typical Marvel cinematic universe movie. You can watch the full trailer below:

Variety reports that Hardy expressed his passion for the project at the CinemaCon event. He told the crowd, “Being part of this movie is a dream come true… He’s one of my favorite characters as well.”

For fans who are looking to catch another glimpse of Hardy in partial Venom make-up, the film’s new teaser poster features a nice split shot of Brock and his symbiotic mask creeping its way across his face:

Venom was directed by Ruben Fleischer, and it also stars Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, and Riz Ahmed. Sony Pictures will release the film to theaters on October 5th, 2018. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on this exciting project as they break!
