Okaayyy… “The upcoming Spider-Man spinoff Venom has landed a PG-13 rating, according to the MPAA. …Director Ruben Fleischer was eager to push the limits of what he could do with the comic book property, and it seems that this new rating means he was able to do so.” Is the male teenager demographic really that important to this movie’s success?
Right. Strike that. The question looked stupid even when I typed it out. Still, this is a movie about a barely-anti-hero that goes around and, at various points in the comics, eats bad people. Certainly the trailers imply that. But at the same time, they kind of also suggest that nobody really gets eaten. It is, as they say, a puzzler.
