Now that the Venom film is just one more week away from its release, the makers of the action flick have still managed to hide many ‘Venom-in-action’ moments from the film itself-because revealing more can be less during the actual theatrical experience. And Sony has kept it tight when coming to the action footage from the movie, starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock aka Venom.

But less than 24 hours ago, a new official footage has been released by Sony revealing Hardy’s full-fledged CGI embedded action scene in the movie. Though it’s about half-a-minute, it’s quite enthralling!

In the clip titled, ‘To Protect and Serve’, Venom can be seen battling-it-out against a group of armed police officers and shows his abilities.

The decision to show less of Venom doing the action can turn out great for Sony, as fans will be more eager now to watch their favorite comic-book anti-hero in his big-screen appearance.

There have been instances when revealing nearly every action scene of a film before its release leads to disappointing reactions from the audiences if the film is really not up-to-the-mark. Back in 2016, during Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s promotions, Warner Bros. committed this big mistake by showing almost all the fights and actions (which were really vital to the film’s story) in the trailers themselves!

But now, the strategy of a movie’s promotion has changed and the makers and the studios behind a project know that what to show and what to hide in the teasers, posters or trailers.

Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer, and also stars actress Michelle Williams (as Anne Weying), along with Riz Ahmed (as Riot, the villain), Woody Harrelson and Jenny Slate.

The film is distributed by Sony Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Marvel Entertainment, and Tencent Pictures. It releases in theaters on October 5th, 2018.

Captain Marvel now gets a new origin story in comics ahead of the big-screen debut!

Captain Marvel now gets a new origin story in comics ahead of the big-screen debut!

The orthodox method of superhero movies adapting stories from their comics’ counterparts has now become a thing of the past. Because now, comics are adapting their stories-and even changing the existing ones-to cater to the storylines of films based on them. Another recent example of this is the Captain Marvel film under MCU, by Marvel Studios. Previously, Nick Fury’s look and story was also changed in the official comics after his big-screen appearances in MCU movies.

Marvel Comics has officially changed the origin story of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in the comics prior to the MCU flick’s theatrical debut next year.

If you don’t know anything about Captain Marvel’s origin, anyway, then you must make yourself a bit acquainted with original story.

Originally, going by the comics (since 40 years), Carol gains her powers from the Psyche-Magnitron device, that exploded and made Carol’s DNA fuse with that of Mar-Vell’s.

But in the latest fourth issue of the Life of Captain Marvel, it’s been totally altered by comic book writers Margaret Stohl, Carlos Pacheco, and Erica D’ Urso.

SPOILERS AHEAD: IT’S RELATED TO CAPTAIN MARVEL FILM

The Life of Captain Marvel’s fourth issue reveals that Carol’s mother, Marie Danvers, is a member of the alien race, Kree. Which means that Carol is a Kree-human hybrid. And when the psyche-magnitron went off, it activated her abilities. But here, her DNA didn’t fuse with Mar-Vell’s, implying that she did not receive her superhuman powers from a man. They were there inside her all this long, being received from her mother, which got triggered after the explosion.

Marie herself explains in the new comic, that Carol’s powers are “not borrowed. Not a gift. Not an accident”. Further, the comic also reveals that Marie’s name is actually Mari-Ell and Carol’s name is in fact, Car-Ell.

So, this new change will be seen in the movie for sure.

Captain Marvel has been teased by Marvel Studios’s head Kevin Feige, as the most powerful superhero in the MCU history so far. And it’s okay, in a logical sense, if some changes are done for making the story slightly much better. Because what’s the relevance of adapting a comic book into a movie if the same plot is shown on the big-screen too?

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Captain Marvel-the 21st entry into the MCU-will be releasing on March 8th 2019.

Yes! James Gunn is now writing the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2

Yes! James Gunn is now writing the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2

Putting a stop on the rumor train, it’s now been officially confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn, will helm DC’s Suicide Squad 2 movie. Yes, you heard that right. Warner Bros has just recently confirmed that the director has now started writing the story for their film.

After being fired by Disney from Marvel Studios, he was approached by its rival, DC, and since then there were strong predictions that he might end up joining the ‘Worlds of DC’ for its new film. And as expected, it’s happening now.

According to BBC’s Newsbeat, the sources close to this matter told that the director ‘has an eye’ to direct the sequel to 2016’s super villain team-up flick. The first Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer, was a disappointment with the critics, gaining poor reviews but was a very commercially hit film with the audiences. It grossed around $746 million worldwide.

But an even more surprising thing is that Dave Bautista, the actor who plays Drax in the GOTG movies, has also offered to join Gunn on his new DC project. Bautista asked Marvel earlier in August, to release him if they didn’t use the script written by James Gunn for Guardians of Galaxy 3.’

Dave Bautista has always been in support of the director and after he was fired, he along with the rest of the cast of the Guardians of Galaxy, namely Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel, had signed an open letter in support of James Gunn, to force Disney to bring him back. But the move didn’t go as well as expected.

James Gunn had tweeted posts mocking pedophilia and rape, back in 2009, but had apologized for them in 2012 itself. But lately, this year in July, a right-wing online website Daily Caller published them and brought those tweets in limelight on social media, after which Disney, which is a family-friendly entertainment company, fired him spontaneously.

But now that James Gunn has actually joined DC, it will be highly interesting to see whether he is able to pull off Suicide Squad 2 in a great manner or not. He made Guardians the most popular superhero characters among the fans in Marvel, so DC’s expectations will be high too.

Fans of the GOTG and James Gunn had also filed a petition, previously to Disney, to bring the director back. But that too didn’t happen.

Venom achieves ‘symbiosis’ with the box-office! Scores biggest October opening of $80MN

Tom Hardy’s solo superhero Marvel flick, Venom, might not have achieved the ‘symbiosis’ with the majority of critics, but with the audiences, it has, and as a result, shattered the October box-office with a record domestic opening. Venom has scored the best October opening weekend figures of $80 million! This record was previously held by 2013 sci-fi film, Gravity ($55 million in opening week).

And that’s not all. The Sony/Marvel action blockbuster also grossed a worldwide collection of $205 million. The bonding of Eddie Brock and Venom seems to sway the audiences at the moment.

Along with Venom, there was also another big rival movie from Warner Bros studio, A Star Is Born, which also opened on a positive note. The musical drama starring Bradley Cooper and singer Lady Gaga in the lead roles grossed around $42 million from Friday to Sunday.

Both the movies are expected to perform well in the coming weeks since there is no big competition, till October 19 when the big horror flick, Halloween arrives. The upcoming film is a direct sequel to 1978 original Halloween.

But talking about Venom, then this movie has shocked nearly each film analyst by outperforming the negative reviews, ratings, and scores. But another movie rating website, CinemaScore, has given the film a ‘B+’ which means a very-very positive thing because that site combines direct reviews and opinions of the audiences going to theaters. Along with it, A Star Is Born (already being a critically exceptional film), has received a fabulous ‘A’ from CinemaScore, which was expected.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer and distributed by Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures, Venom currently has a very poor score of 32% on rating/review giving portal Rotten Tomatoes. But it just doesn’t matter now, since the movie is a massive entertainer for the audiences and Tom Hardy has proven to be the savior and a big star for Sony.

When it comes to India then here also, the ‘symbiote and Eddie Brock’ amazed the domestic releases, with an impressive collection of over Rs. 9 crores in just two days!
