It's Dr. Venom and Mr. Brock

Venom is lurking just around the corner, ready to tear through cinemas come October 3, and Sony just released some sick clips from the alien symbiote’s debut film.

The first comes in a clip entitled “To Protect and Sever" and we could not think of a better pun than that when talking about Venom mauling police officers because “Swatting Away The SWAT” isn't as witty.

Eddie Brock (played by Tom Hardy) somehow gets cornered by these armored men. With their red dots all pointed at Brock’s sweaty hoodie, he warns the officers that “you don’t want to do this, trust me.” One of the officers yell “Mask!” and every agent puts on their, well, masks. We hear the symbiote say “Copy” before turning into Venom. And of course, savagery ensues. They shower the symbiote monster with bullets and flash grenades, the latter significantly affecting Venom because of his weakness to soundwaves. But in the end, of course, the symbiote gets his way.

The other video is more toned down in terms of violence and symbiote appearance. But what this lacks in beast brutality, it makes up for in some reporter business. We can see Tom in Eddie mode, in a state of mind of wanting to expose the Life Foundation headed by Riz Ahmed’s Carlton Drake. It seems that Eddie, at first, was asking about space exploration, and Drake enthusiastically acknowledges that. But then Eddie goes into questioning the testing of pharmaceuticals, and the allegations that the Life Foundation’s tests their medicine on the most vulnerable, which ends up killing them. The interview is cut short as Eddie is escorted away.

We don’t know about you, but Sony did a great job at exploring the two facets of the Venom character: journalist Eddie Brock, and the symbiote creature. It just shows that this is more than just an action movie where Venom tosses people around and straight up murders them. We also get a look at the character of Eddie without the alien goo and how he is at his job. What brings the two of them together is they're both after the same thing: justice. One is just a little more, err, persuasive. Which one? You decide.
