Tom Hardy's Son Told Him What He Was Doing Wrong With Venom

Tom Hardy has revealed that his favorite moments from Venom didn't make the final cut of the film.

"There are like 30 to 40 minutes worth of scenes that aren't in this movie... all of them". Like mad puppeteering scenes, dark comedy scenes. The cast seems to all know they're in a darker superhero movie, except Tom Hardy who is basically remaking Jim Carrey's Liar Liar.

Other reactions are more nuanced, acknowledging the film's flaws but praising Tom Hardy's performance and the buddy dynamic between him and his Venom alter ego.

Full reviews will follow this week, with the movie taking its bow across the United Kingdom tomorrow.

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". So what I'm saying is I had a lot of time improvising and a lot of freedom to play with Venom. Apart from Riz and Tom, the film also stars Michelle Williams, Scott Haze and Reid Scott.

"I read this thinking: thank God", says McGurk. As an executive producer I knew anyway what the story was about and that's not what it was. "What I've said in the past is that we wanted to push the violence to the hilt". Even to date while watching the movie on our television screens, we love it when the veteran actor says the dialogue.

If it's from Ed Woodward (the chief executive) to Mourinho and then Mourinho to his players, the place just looks unstable. The players brought in - I'd question if they're good enough. "He is a special character", Mourinho said.


Tell It to Us StraightA few fun Venom-centric moments aside, it has almost nothing to offer. (These two takes do not seem mutually exclusive to me.) Some were impressed at just how close to the original comic book concept of Venom the film got. Yeah, me neither. Well, unless you're reading this internationally, because in that case you may be able to watch it tomorrow.

The Tom Hardy movie is in cinemas tomorrow, October 3, with reviews not due to be published until just hours before the first public screening. But Drake wants the alien, thugs are dispatched, and Eddie and Venom (yes, the alien's name is just "Venom", saving any kind of Spider tie-in) start working somewhat together to cause as much chaos as possible.

'Venom, ' directed by Ruben Fleischer, is due for an October 1 premiere in Los Angeles.
