Breaking Down the Official Venom Trailer

Author Thumbnail BY Jon Arvedon - April 26, 2018

After a largely underwhelming teaser trailer in February, Sony Pictures has finally released the first full-length trailer for the studio’s upcoming Spider-Man-adjacent superhero film, Venom. Not only is this trailer jam-packed with new footage, but it also gives fans their first look at Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock/Venom in all his symbiotic glory.

Follow along with us as we break down all the biggest and best moments from the official Venom trailer:

#1- It Came From Outer Space

Feature Detail

Back in the teaser trailer, we saw a shot of a wrecked spacecraft, and it was assumed by most that this would be the source of the symbiote’s arrival on Earth. Here, that assumption is confirmed, as we see a canister housing the symbiote being extracted from the ship and placed in the protective custody of the Life Foundation.

#2- Multiple Symbiotes

Feature Detail

We witnessed part of this shot in the teaser trailer, but from the way it was cut, all we saw at the time was Riz Ahmed’s Dr. Carlton Drake opening up the back of a van and finding the Venom symbiote. However, here, we can clearly see that Venom isn’t alone, as it’s just one of multiple symbiotes the Life Foundation has in its possession. This, of course, lends credence to the possible inclusion of the five symbiotes from the popular Venom: Lethal Protector miniseries, or even the rumored appearance of Carnage.
