Trivia

Michelle Williams told "The Hollywood Reporter" that Tom Hardy was a big reason why she decided to sign on for "Venom." "He's so talented and so committed. He also makes unusual choices in a moment-to-moment, scene-by-scene kind of way." See more »

Goofs

Before the mercs knocked on Eddie's door Venom sensed them. When Anne was taking Eddie to the hospital later on in the movie Venom didn't sense the drone flying behind Anne's car. However, we don't know how Venom's senses work. It is possible that he senses living beings much better than machines. Besides, hearing approaching humans from a quiet apartment is much easier than hearing a drone from inside a moving car on a loud street. See more »
