While I didn’t think much of Venom [you can read my review here], it was a big hit despite much understandable annoyance about Sony heavily re-editing the film down to a ‘PG-13’. I like the basic premise of the film, so I’m still really curious to see something pertaining to the original cut, especially as Tom Hardy rather bravely said that his favourite scenes were removed. However, sadly it seems that we won’t see this supposedly quirkier, darker and bloodier version. As director Ruben Fleischer told ‘LRM’:
“I’m proud of the movie we’ve put out, and I think that the additional material on the DVD adds a little bit of color to the film. I don’t feel the need at this point to release an unrated version, I feel like fans seem to really like the movie that we put out.”
Well, he does say “at this point” so it’s not a 100% no – or am I just clutching at straws? Come on Tom, speak your mind again, we’re behind you even if the studio won’t be….
