Hello!

Cast of VENOM (2018) was marked as completed but it's missing at least one credit.

Rxchie as Guard

I've sent the update:
190310-002923-494000
I've verified this through a screenshot and on Fandango and several other websites:

https://www.fandango.com/venom-2018-208501/cast-and-crewhttps://sonys-marvel-universe.fandom.com/wiki/Rxchie


Please advise on how this can be fixed :)
Thanks!
David

I verified this cast and as you can see from the credits from my DVD, Rxchie as Guard is not listed.

It is interesting indeed. But as this film was reportedly problematic, my suspicion is that the dvd and the theatrical release may have different cuts and maybe different credit rolls.

Fandango is listing the credit through their provider Rovi, they’re supposed to be pretty accurate.

In this case a dvd may not be the most accurate source, as it may differ from the theatrical version.

I can attest that credits should be different: at the very least, a post-credits scene from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) was deleted in video releases.

Thanks for the clarification, but my question is... What if the theatrical version of the film has different credits than the DVD release?
Isn't a theatrical release an official source? 
Why are Google and Fandango reporting different credits? Shouldn't that be also valid proof?

It's amazing that you do not see your own assumptions. No one can prove a negative. You have to prove the positive. Google "burden of proof" if you do not know what I'm talking about.

You have to prove that your copy is the theatrical one. The DVD specifically says that it is the theatrical cut. None of your sources make that distinction, so know, your proof is not as valid.

You’re assuming as much as I am assuming. So we’re just gonna aggree to disagree.

If no one can prove a negative, why are you assuming that you’re right and that google and fandango used the wrong version of the film?

I’m just gonna leave that there...

Go and google: Proof

Occam's razor demonstration lead to decide that DVD and theatrical release are most likely to be identical...

Thanks Vincent. I agree that we should assume the simplest solution here.

But that still leaves the question open: IMDB relies on people’s input but Fandango/TiVo are likely to get the information from the distribution company directly... and the discrepancy is there...
