Although Venom is actually produced by Columbia Pictures in association with Marvel, the character from the Spider-Man universe is still the latest Marvel personality to hit the big screen. A lot of hype surrounded the upcoming film, what with Venom never being explored like this before. However, some viewers disliked the quality of special effects in the trailer, along with various other aspects. According to Rich LeDuke, “I thought the lines were funny when they weren’t supposed to be. It kind of sucked.”

Despite these criticisms, according to The Washington Post, the movie made a total of $378.1 million in just ten days, snaking its way to the top of the box office two weeks in a row. Evidently, regardless of some critics’ reviews, Marvel fans (and even those who aren’t) still wanted to see Venom in action.

“I think the critics were very wrong,” Joseph Nash said. “It shouldn’t turn people away from seeing the movie. Venom was a good watch and a fantastic Marvel addition.”

Venom stars journalist Eddie Brock, played by Tom Hardy. Brock realizes that Carlton Drake, the founder of the Life Foundation, is conducting extremely questionable experiments on both animals and humans involving “aliens” called symbiotes. While trying to take Drake down, a particular symbiote called Venom “bonds” with his body. Now Brock not only has to get used to losing his job and wife but has to deal with a foreign entity vying for control of his body.
