Here's Where You Can Watch Venom For Free At Home

A standalone film based on the "Spider-Man" sometimes villain, sometimes anti-hero, "Venom" came out in 2018 to surprise box office success, making over $850 million worldwide (via Box Office Mojo). "Venom" became a surprise hit thanks to its campy quality and strong overseas numbers, though critics were pretty negative towards the film, giving it a 30% "rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes

In the film "Venom," investigative journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) discovers that a bioengineering company, led by CEO Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), is experimenting on alien symbiotic life-forms by combining them with human hosts. Brock breaks into the facility housing the experiments only to be possessed by a symbiote in the process. Feeling some strange symptoms, Brock soon meets his possessive symbiote named Venom, whose alien race wants to take over Earth. Despite his misgivings, Brock starts to like the powers Venom gives him. The bonded pair then have to work together to stop Drake from helping the other symbiotes and ending life as we know it.

The character of Venom has remained popular since debuting in Marvel Comics in 1988, even appearing in the 2007 misfire "Spider-Man 3" as portrayed by Topher Grace, and now he's got two solo films of his own. Before (or after) you see the new sequel, "Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage," here's how you watch see the first "Venom" at home.
