The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.
The Venom character is an alien symbiote that need a human host to survive. In return, the alien empowers its victim with incredible powers. The teaser trailer does it’s job of teasing, as it doesn’t show an ounce of a symbiote suit to be seen in any of the clips and obviously that’ll disappoint a lot of people, but we get a quick glimpse of it in a container and technically it’s a teaser so they’re not going to give it away until they have it sorted with the VFX team. It’s still got a lot of work to do in order to pull people in as not much of the plot/story is being given here and the dialogue feels pretty generic for a trailer. Ruben Fleischer is directing the film on a script that Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner wrote, with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach serving as producers alongside Amy Pascal.
Venom is scheduled for cinematic release on the 5th October 2018.
