While the early trailers for Venom may have been divisive, those who are keen to see the film may be interested in pre-screenings available locally.

Ster-Kinekor will have early bookings for the film allowing those with tickets to watch it on 4th October, which is a day before the general release on 5th October.

While these earlier screenings have been offered before, the way you buy tickets is a bit different this time around.

Bookings will only be available for a scant five hours on Tuesday 25th September. You’ll need to go to the Ster-Kinekor website and make your purchase starting at noon.

Once 17:00 rolls around the tickets will no longer be available.

While we don’t usually encourage buying media before reviews are out, we assume most fans are going to see this one regardless. Hopefully Sony has learned some lessons from Marvel and Spider-Man: Homecoming and they can give Venom the movie the character deserves.

Finally, if you need more Venom in your life, make sure you listen to the song by Eminem created for the movie. This is less about the film and more about us trying to get you to listen to the new album Kamikaze, because it’s brilliant.
