New from Reel Talker by Jim Alexander: Trailer Wars: Venom vs Solo

Welcome to the first edition of Trailer Wars. I will pit two recently released trailers and see which one impressed more. Simple as that. This week it’s Venom versus Solo. Two highly anticipated films. Lets get to it:



So Tom Hardy is a strong sell here. A terrific no-nonsense actor who ran-off the sinking Suicide Squad ship, before it sunk. Hardy doesn’t take shit roles and he certainly has great sensibilities on what projects will work. I trust his judgement.

Venom looks like a combination of a Spider-Man movie (Andrew Garfield version) and Wolverine (the first James Mangold one). It reminds me of both due to the humor and apparent darkness of the story and character.  Hardy seems to make light of his super powers, but is still menacing and doesn’t appear to be cartoony in any way.

Michelle Williams is another very credible actor that’s part of this film. I just liked how the trailer focuses on Hardy’s character Eddie Brock discovering and trying to come to terms with his new powers. The reveal of Venom at the end is as good and high quality as you can imagine.

LOOK: 9.5/10
