In an interview with ComicsExplained, Tom Hardy was asked "what was your favorite scene to film?"

The actor continued, "There are, like, 30 to 40 minutes' worth of scenes that aren't in this movie... all of them". 'Mad puppeteering scenes, dark comedy scenes. That's... I mean, that's really all there is to be said, I think.

"That's been misunderstood. What I'm trying to say is, the question was [what] scenes I was most excited to shoot...and I was like, there's a bunch of stuff that hasn't made the movie".

As you can see in this video, when SYFY WIRE caught up with Hardy ahead of Venom's release, he was joined by Riz Ahmed, the actor who plays Carlton Drake in the movie. I'll talk about this more in my review, but it is a film that has somehow slipped through a wormhole from 2004. "I am Venom", it growls after revealing itself in its full seven-foot, toothy, Gene Simmons-tongued glory.

Rockies avoid Scherzer in series finale vs. Nationals
Speaking of the Dodgers and the Rockies, they'll play at Dodger Stadium (first pitch at 1:09) and you can catch it on ESPN. Even though the Rockies are going on the road, they are keeping it simple and running out the same lineup as yesterday.

Previous comments from both its director Ruben Fleischer and its leading man Tom Hardy had led many to predict that it would actually be rated R.

"That's been misunderstood", Hardy said.

Numerous reviews describe the movie as outdated and that the film belongs in the year 2004. Venom's humor and personality, which plays like a darker version of Spider-Man's corny dialogue mixed with Deadpool's incessant ramblings, is front and center in the film.

Well, it will all depend on Venom's box office success for the makers to decide if the movie will receive a sequel down the line.

Cancer Immunotherapy Researchers Win 2018 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine
Allison focused on a protein on the surface of T cells called CTLA-4, discovering that it inhibits the immune cells. The citation for this year's Nobel Prize in Medicine says the two honorees developed therapies for treating cancer.

"If you replaced Tom Hardy for Steve Martin in "All of Me", and switched out Lily Tomlin for a wad of chewed-up black licorice, you'd have "Venom". But Drake wants the alien, thugs are dispatched, and Eddie and Venom (yes, the alien's name is just "Venom", saving any kind of Spider tie-in) start working somewhat together to cause as much chaos as possible.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's see how Venom fares when it hits theaters on October 5th. "It's too bad they didn't go for the R rating though". But with Tom Hardy doing the iconic Bollywood Mogambo dialogue, one thing is pretty definite.

Venom will be released in our cinemas on the 10th of October next , and after these first opinions of americans, it may well be that our criticism does happen very soon.

Republicans' prosecutor says Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has weak case
She identified Ford's case as an example of "he said/she said" and said her case is "even weaker than that". They don't match - those allegations don't match the Kavanaugh that they knew.
