When Venom first hit the theatres, it received 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes by the critics. However, now the numbers indicate that the audience thought otherwise.
Venom outgrossed the critically acclaimed Wonder Woman at the worldwide box office. The DC power packed solo adventure of Princess Diana is considered to be the best DC movie till date, thanks to Gal Gadot and Petty Jenkins. However, it seems like the power of Wonder Woman wasn’t able to hold off Venom. Thanks to this weekend collection of $ 21.3 million, Venom is now at $822 million at the worldwide box office.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams,, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott.
One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters takes center stage as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom. As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious founder of the Life Foundation, genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) – and that obsession ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams). Upon investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, as well as the chance to do just about whatever he wants. Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating. As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined – where does Eddie end and Venom begin?
Venom is now playing in theaters.
