First VENOM Trailer Teases the Alien Symbiote
Tom Hardy is about to become a lethal protector.
Sony Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for Venom, based on the Marvel Comics antihero and starring Tom Hardy as Venom/Eddie Brock and Michelle Williams as Ann Weying.
The 90-second trailer opens with a scenic lake that's revealed to be a large television screen hanging next to an MRI machine. Eddie is inside the machine, being examined by a pair of scientists.
We see a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, and hear a voiceover from Eddie and see a glimpse of Ann inside a hospital. "Everyone's got their thing. Maybe it's a breakup, a death, an accident..."
At that moment, we glimpse what appears to be a downed alien spacecraft, presumably what brings the alien symbiote to Earth. "Whatever it is," continues Eddie, "you used to be one thing and now, you're something else."
Next, we see Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), the founder and CEO of a powerful company known as the Life Foundation. He admires the alien symbiote, which is housed in a clear container, as a group of research scientists looks on.
"We all have our own problems," continues Eddie as we see him on a motorcycle with cars crashing behind him and then running through a forest, "our own issues, our own...demons."
Inside the MRI machine, Eddie begins screaming and convulsing in agony.

Venom is currently expected to arrive in theaters on October 5th, 2018.
