Tom Hardy lets loose his inner demon in the New film “Venom”
Eddie Brock, after failing to make it as a photographer in NYC, lives with his girlfriend Anne in San Francisco and makes his living as a TV “gonzo” journalist that excels in getting the truth and uncovering all the dirt in the world. Anne is a corporate lawyer and represents millionaire philanthropist Carlton Drake.

The ship crashes in Malaysia, as Drake and the Life-force scientists watch. Four of the 10 samples survive the fiery impact and one lone astronaut survives the crash. The astronaut was infected by one of the specimens and when a paramedic comes in contact the sample transfers to her.
