The music video for rapper Eminem's Venom movie tie-in song, titled "Venom (Music From The Motion Picture)" was released today. The video depicts a young man picking up a mysterious black disc that turns out to be a symbiote. The boy gets onto a bus, where he passes the symbiote on to another person, who then passes it on to another person, and so on and so forth.
As each person is infected, they take on Eminem's role, rapping as they walk throughout the city and generally messing things up along the way. The symbiote is eventually even passed on to a dog. The eponymous Venom doesn't appear until the very end of the video, which isn't surprising. That CGI couldn't have been cheap.
The song itself was released in full back in September on Eminem's album Kamikaze. At the time, we found the song to be a strange, dated affair.
In theaters nationwide, director Ruben Fleischer’s Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate,Woody Harrelson, Sope Aluko, Scott Deckert, Marcella Bragio and Michelle Lee.
