“Venom” is director Ruben Fleischer’s (Zombieland) theatrical adaptation of the comic book character, of the same name. It follows disgraced reporter Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) whose life is turned upside down by Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed). Eddie becomes bonded with an alien symbiote named Venom. This plunges him into the middle of an alien conflict. Venom is traditionally an adversary of Spider-Man. Due to legal reasons, Spider-Man is not in the film.
