Met Venom heeft Ruber Fleischer een film gemaakt die door de bezoekers zeer goed is ontvangen en door de pers is vergruist. Deze regisseur had een interview met de website Collider en daar van kan je hier onder een stukje lezen.
Collider: I like asking about the editing process, because ultimately, that’s the final re-write. What did you learn from early friends and family screenings, or any test screenings, that impacted the finished film?
RUBEN FLEISCHER: We actually did very few screenings of the movie because of the protective nature of not wanting a lot of word to get out about the film. So, most of what we learned about the movie was from our own internal process of trying to figure out the relationship between Eddie, and Venom, and wanting to mine that, because I think that’s the core of the movie, is the dynamic between Eddie and Venom. That’s what we really, through the editing process, were mining and leaning into, and wanting to cultivate and expand upon. That was for me, the most exciting aspect of the movie, and what I was trying to cultivate.
I always am curious about deleted scenes. How long was your first cut, compared to the finished film?
FLEISCHER: Well, the movie was pretty short. I’m trying to remember. The original cut wasn’t…sometimes, you hear about three hour long assemblies. It wasn’t that. I think the original editor’s assembly, where it has every single scene in it, maybe two hours, which is a surprisingly short amount of time for a movie, because we ended up not that much shorter than that. So, it didn’t get pared down too significantly.
This movie was always intended just as a really fun, crowd-pleasing ride. It’s full of action. It’s just a fun movie, so it was always from script to finish line, it was just a tight, just exciting ride.
