Is Sony’s Venom bad? Early reactions are in!

Published

on

So, Monday night was the premiere of this Friday’s much anticipated, Sony/Marvel’s Venom, starring Tom Hardy as an anti-hero. And taking in consideration the latest reactions from several eminent critics and film experts who have watched it yesterday, the film is-according to their reactions-tilting towards an average side.

The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer, and apart from Tom Hardy, stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Woody Harrelson and Jenny Slate.

The film was initially rumored to be an R-rated flick, when it was announced last year that Tom Hardy is starring in a project which is R-rated. But as the release date gradually came closer, it was revealed to the fans, by Sony Pictures, that the film in actual is a PG-13 flick instead.

The initial teasing trailers were also slammed by many die-hard Venom lovers who criticized the film for not revealing the Venom look. But their demands were fulfilled by successive, new, trailers in which Venom was seen in full action, and even some cool clips were also released from the film.

Though, some curious eyeballs were skeptical about this Marvel film under Sony, as they knew what happened to Sony’s previous Marvel ‘film franchise idea’, like the unforgettable The Amazing Spider-Man movie series.

Only their new Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who is now again rebooted (thanks to the MCU impact), is a big name among the fans of Spider-verse at the moment. Sony also wanted to create their own franchise akin to MCU or other contemporary Marvel film franchises.

Well, it now seems as if Venom, too, is under suspicion now!

Dave Chappelle refuses to bend to transgender demands: ‘You will not summon me’

Dave Chappelle refuses to bend to demands from a group of transgender Netflix employees.

The comedian’s representatives announced he would meet with the employees after refusing to meet with them for weeks.

Chappelle joked he will meet with the Netflix employees – if they admit lesbian comedienne Hannah Gadsby isn’t funny.

Hannah is a male-identified lesbian who criticized Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos after he defended Chappelle’s Netflix special, The Closer.

The controversial comic, who is currently on a 10-city comedy tour, shared a video to Instagram from his Nashville show, in which he addressed the Netflix employees directly.

“To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience, but you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands,” the Emmy winner says in the five-minute Instagram clip. Comments on the post appear to have been turned off.

He added:

“And if you want to meet with me, I’d be more than willing to, but I have some conditions. First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end. You must come to a place of my choosing at a time of my choosing, and thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny.”

In the Instagram video, Chappelle said he was disinvited from film festivals following The Closer backlash.

“Thank God for Ted Sarandos and Netflix, he’s the only one that didn’t cancel me yet.”

According to a source who was at the Nashville show, Dave started his set with a “statement” to those he’d offended, jokingly pulling out a piece of paper and reading “F**k y’all, n**gas!” TMZ reported.

Chappelle will air a documentary, “Untitled,” during his tour stops in 10 cities, including Atlanta on Nov. 21.

Angelina Jolie‘s uneven hair extensions went viral on Monday after she attended the Rome Film Festival on Sunday. Angelina’s hair extensions were the talk of Twitter.

The mom-of-six looked stunning in a strapless custom Atelier Versace platinum gown made from heritage metal mesh.

But it was the Eternals star’s hair extensions that got the attention of social media users.

Many on Twitter.com questioned why Angelina’s hair stylist chopped her extensions so badly.

“How do you let Angelina Jolie walk a red carpet with her hair extensions looking like this, somebody getting fired,” one user tweeted.

Another Twitter user wrote: “Well, maybe she had one of her kids do the extensions, which is kinda sweet.”

And a third person tweeted:

“The dress is perfection but did one of the children get angry and take a scissors to her hair in the middle of the night.”

15-year-old Shiloh stole the show for her unusual choice of footwear – yellow and black sneakers that she paired with a short black Versace cocktail dress.

Her older sister Zahara, 16, looked glamorous in a Grecian-inspired vintage dress from Catwalk Designer Vintage in L.A, according to PEOPLE magazine.

At the film’s Los Angeles premiere last week, Zahara also went for a vintage look, wearing her mum’s 2014 Ellie Saab Oscars dress.

It was Jolie’s first time in public after being forced to quarantine following a potential exposure to COVID following the L.A. premiere.

Angelina, who is fully vaccinated, and her Eternals co-stars Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Lauren Ridloff, and director Chloe Zhao, had to miss Elle’s Women in Hollywood event last week while they quarantined.
