Whereas Gal Gadot starrer Wonder Woman managed to collect 821.84 million dollars globally. Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom is the first movie from Sony's developing comic-book cinematic universe which already includes Spider-Man.
As per the movie, Hardy plays the role of an investigative reporter Eddie Brock who is probing into shady human trials of an alien parasitic species called the symbiote by businessman Carlton Drake aka Riz Ahmed. One of the symbiotes referred as Venom, embodies Eddie, and gives him superman strength, agility and speed.
Besides Tom, venom also features Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed in pivotal characters.
Although, the Tom Hardy starrer failed to get positive reviews from the audience but the box-office collection surely reflects the opposite. One of the reviews of Venom read: “Venom’s first standalone movie turns out to be like the comics character in all the wrong ways – chaotic, noisy, and in desperate need of a stronger attachment to Spider-Man.”
Reports further added that although Venom has beaten Wonder Woman globally but t is still more than 200 million dollars behind in domestic (North American) earnings. As far as the domestic earnings are concerned, Venom grossed 211.70 million dollars where Wonder Woman made 412.56 million dollars.
