Watch: ‘Venom’ Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment



Sony Pictures

The team at Screen Junkies have crafted their first Honest Trailer for 2019, and Venom is the first film off the block to receive the honest spotlight.

“Get ready for a gnarly, sick, tight movie you’ll love… as long as you’re the kind of person who says, ‘Gnarly, sick and tight.'” As you’d expect, plenty of fun is poked at the comic book adaptation, which featured Tom Hardy doing his best “crackhead squirrel” investigative reporter, Michelle Williams donning a terrible wig, and a villain with an overly familiar game plan.

Personally, I wasn’t a big fan of the film, but as the Honest Trailer below points out, the critics and general audiences were on pretty different pages with this one. The film topped $US855 million worldwide, a massive haul that almost guarantees Sony will be juicing a franchise from it. Fingers crossed for what unfolds.
