Ruben Fleischer’s Venom was a bigger hit than expected. The supposed first step in Sony’s “Venom Extended Universe” (which will include Morbius and Venom 2) has made more than $800 million internationally, meaning that we live in a world where a Venom solo film made more than the goddamn Justice League. Venom got plenty of love from the movie-going public, even if the critics panned it.
Even this very site gave it a bad review, but we’re far from a hivemind. I loved the stupid movie for being a fun and funny exercise in Tom Hardy being as ridiculous as possible. I loved it enough that I’ve already pre-ordered the Blu-ray.
That’s even before I found out what’s even on said Blu-ray outside scenes of a raw lobster meals and goofy, red wigs.
Venom DVD/Blu-ray Release Date
Venom will be hitting digital on December 11, but the blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack will be coming out on December 18. Which works out great because being a liquid lifeform, Venom is in fact the perfect stocking stuffer. You can pre-order it here.
There’s a lot of extra stuff in this baby – advertised as over an hour – which includes deleted scenes, extended scenes, a Pop-Up Video option called Venom Mode, behind-the-scenes documentaries, that Eminem music video, and some stuff on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Anyone who hates that trailer suffers from Toxin masculinity.
…aw man, this is probably why they don’t let me review movies on this site.
