Venom Gets First Promo Art

Published

on

Steve Weintraub of Collider was lucky enough to attend the CCXP (Comic Con Experience) event in Brazil, where he noticed what appeared to be the first promo art for Sony’s upcoming Venom movie hidden away in the Sony booth.

The tagline ‘We Are Venom’ is a direct reference to how in the comics, Eddie Brock usually refers to himself usual plural personal pronouns (such as ‘we’ instead of ‘I’) when merged with the Symbiote. Also note how the first two words are written in blood, which is hardly surprising considering reports that the film will carry an R-rating. The logo shows an image of Venom’s face, which fans will be relieved to see looks pretty much the same as it does in the comics, aside from the fact that his signature long tongue is nowhere to be seen.

Whilst we still haven’t received official confirmation, it’s now looking less likely that Venom will connect to Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. At first it seemed as though they would be taking a similar approach to the Marvel shows on Netflix, which are set in the MCU but only occasionally reference the characters and events from the films, but it now appears that Venom will be set within its own separate continuity. Movie Pilot even created a timeline of all the times  people involved with Venom stated stated that it was either either part of or separate from the MCU, and it’s so pretty damn complicated that at this point it’s probably best to wait for official confirmation from either Sony or Disney.

Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer and stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, and Riz Ahmed, and will open in wide release on October 5, 2018. Which is less than a year away, so expect to see a lot more marketing soon.

THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE Pouncing onto Blu-ray Next Month

Published

on

The Curse of the Cat People will be released on Blu-ray for the first time by Scream Factory on June 26. Originally released in 1944, the film was a sequel to Cat People, which was released two years prior, with Kent Smith returning as Oliver Reed, a father who thinks his daughter may have fallen influence to his deceased first wife (played by Simone Simon, also returning), who was descended from a race of mythical cat people.

The film was co-directed by Gunther von Fritsch and Robert Wise, the latter of whom went on the helm classics including West Side Story, The Haunting, The Sound of Music, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It also starred Jane Randolph, Ann Carter, Sir Lancelot, and Julia Dean.

The Blu-ray will include audio commentaries from historians Steve Haberman and Greg Mank, trailers and stills, and a video essay by filmmaker Constantine Nasr called Lewton’s Muse: The Dark Eyes Of Simone Simon. As this classic film has never before graced the Blu-ray format with its presence, we can’t wait to get our hands (or paws) on it when it releases next month.
