Eminem has released the full video for his track ‘Venom’, which appears on the soundtrack of the new Marvel film of the same name.
In the video we see a teenager discover a cracked CD case. As soon as he slips the disc into his rucksack, a transformation takes place. Riffing on the storyline of the new Spiderman spin-off film, ‘Venom’, the teen is possessed by a ‘symbiote’.
Various characters, from a bus driver to a young boy to a pensioner, are then overtaken with the anger behind Eminem’s lyrics. The rapper’s face flickers across their faces as they rap along to the track.
Watch the full video below:
Although featuring on the ‘Venom’ soundtrack, the song first appeared on ‘Kamikaze’, Eminem’s surprise album which was released last month.
The record hears Eminem fire shots at some of hip-hop’s most recognisable faces, as well as sparking an ongoing back-and-forth feud with Machine Gun Kelly.
Venom debuted in cinemas yesterday to an overwhelmingly negative reaction.
In a two-star review, NME described it as “a flawed beast that feels 10 years out of time”.
“Too often though, it proves to be a film without a solid identity, and one that feels a decade too late”, our review stated.
“Venom could have been so much more, a real chance for Sony to mark the beginning of a darkened alternative universe that was capable of taking on the multiplex slaying might of the MCU.
“As it stands, it seems that there’s very little for Disney to worry about.”
