After having a few hours to collect myself and watch the trailer numerous times… It’s time to give my thoughts on the upcoming horror/anti-hero movie trailer that dropped this morning… It was absolutely exhilarating. I feel as if I was one of the few who thoroughly enjoyed the first trailer, with basically no complaints. This trailer though… blew my frickin’ mind. I have always been one to get pretty hyped for anything Marvel or DC, but this is such a new taste for the superhero genere.
The trailer starts out with Eddie Brock giving a little idea of who he is. He is a reporter who believes the goverment is missing some very important/dangerous events in the world, and that he has found “something really bad.” Following that introduces the beginning of the tear between Eddie and Venom. The trailer then cuts to the main antagonist of the film Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) stating why he is trying to learn more about the symbiotes which is for finding a way to combine man and symbiote to start a new evolution of man-kind. This trailer does an extremely good job of giving a glance into the intentions of the two main characters of the film.
Then… we get some action of Venom…
Eddie and Venom have some back and forth showing the difficult time Eddie is having controlling the symbiote to use it for only good. I’m sure this will be a struggle we will see at the beginning of the film when they are converged into one-being: the malicious intent of venom and the good guy of Eddie Brock. This will give us a fun roller coaster to keep our eyes on throughout the film. We get some more direct dialogue from Venom when he has captured the enemy from the first trailer, where he begins to describe the human body, “Eyes, lungs, pancreas so many snacks so little time.” This line gave me a rush of chills down my spine. This is where the R rating is going to come from. They seem to be wanting to portray the very maniacle/cannibal side of Venom which is going to give an extremely interesting characteristic for a character we are rooting for.
To touch on the special effects of the trailer we got an amazing look at the full standing Venom! This was something I was petrified about because in the first trailer Venom didnt seem to be THAT big… Well Sony has eased our hearts revealing a monstrosity that is Venom, a solid 7/8 foot or so standing creature that will terrify all oncoming foes. Speaking of foes of within the film, we got a more improved look at the enemy symbiotes in the film mainly Scream/Donna Diego (Michelle Lee) and what looked like Toxin/Patrick Mulligan (Reid Scott). It is really exciting to see what Venom will be potentially up against in the upcoming film!
All in all the trailer was super satisfying to have a peak at the story, giving some light to the villains of the film, and the amazing special effects. What did you think about the trailer?

The dates have finally been announced when the beta will drop for Black Ops 4, the upcoming installment for the Call of Duty franchise. It has been a sigh of relief the last few years when the developers have allowed us to indulge on early gameplay for multiple reasons. The biggest of course is for the not so hardcore fans to know if they will be interested in the newest Call of Duty. Then another benefit for the hardcore fans is they will be able to express their opinions of different gun balances pre launch. Even though some people may view the Call of Duty as a second evil to EA with their microtransactions, it really has been much appreciated that we have been getting betas for the past few games. Yes, for most part the franchise has become stale, but I will argue that the recent Call of Duty installment betas have lead to a much more polished game release.
Multiplayer Beta Dates:
Playstation 4 (First Weekend):
Start: August 3rd 10am PT / 1pm ET
End: August 6th 10am PT / 1pm ET
Playstation 4 and Xbox One (Second Weekend):
Start: August 10th 10am PT / 1pm ET
End: August 13th 10am PT / 1pm ET
Start: August 10th 10am PT / 1pm ET
End: August 13th 10am PT / 1pm ET
Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta: Classified
There are a plethora of different elements the community is eager to get their hands on in the beta. Black Ops 4 is trying it’s best to make Call of Duty feel innovated again, but this could be its ultimate downfall. As much as the community complains about Call of Duty being stale by not taking risks, these same people lash out when the game does change (jet packs). There is potential for a pivotal year for Call of Duty with the addition of new combat changes such as self healing, medics, five man matches, and BATTLE ROYALE… this could be a huge turning point for the franchise. If pulled off correctly, fans will find their love for the game again. But if the additions lack, it could be the final dagger to the heart for the franchise. As a long time Call of Duty lover… I really hope this could be the change we are needing.
Let us know what you think about the upcoming Call of Duty game, Black Ops 4. Are you interested with the changes? Are you buying in on a AAA title making a battle royale game mode? Are you excited for a possibly new tactical game play with self healing? Or do you just want Call of Duty to die already?
Yesterday was the first day of C2E2, and it was a blast! We got there right around the time of opening at 10am, and were there till around 5pm. The day started very well when I brought Seth to his first ever booth… He had the intensions of not spending any money, but those planes were demolished intently when he drops about 100$ at his first booth on some statues and key chains… We then went and met Jennifer Hale for an autograph, and it felt amazing to meet one of the most popular voices in video games throughout the years. It was really great to see a huge a cluster of nerds who love and share a bunch of common interested! All around day one was a huge success we will post some of the art work sometime this weekend for everyone to check out!
