The 'symbiote' appears to be Eminem's lyrics
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.”
