Tom Hardy was looking significantly less possessed by an amorphous alien symbiote at the premiere of Venom on Monday. His apparent affinity for playing characters that wear masks in movies can sometimes make us forget how gorgeous he is, but thankfully his red carpet appearances remind us of his alluring smile and smolder. He was accompanied by many of his fellow Venom castmates, including Michelle Williams, Kelly Marcel, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate.
Although the movie hasn't officially hit theaters yet, there have already been talks about a sequel and spinoffs. We're definitely hoping that the film delivers at the box office, and not because we want to see more of Tom Hardy, but because — OK, it's because we want to see more of Tom Hardy.
