"No, the symbiote does not take over and control you! How the hell did Venom swing around that tower without touching anything, can he friggin fly? WHY does Venom have EYEBALLS?"
Its jumping than flying from what I can tell, as for the eye balls, it just makes him look more threatening.
As for this movie, I think its likely to end up being a Box office bomb because outside of comic book fans and those who saw Spiderman on TV as a kid/teenager the charater of Venom isn't that well known, much like a lot of Spiderman's foes to the general public, plus the fact they seem to be leaving out the vitial element of the alien getting a copy of spiderman's powers from Peter Parker, its just going to be a movie that not worth seeing and likely appear in the cinemas and be out within the space of a month or so.
The question that remains is how hard will this bomb for Sony, enough for them to sell the rights to Spiderman movies and all the rouges back to their rightful owners, Marvel?
