Venom bites head off October box office record

Venom bites head off October box office record

Even if the estimated numbers for Venom fall down, the film will easily get ahead of 2013's George Clooney starrer Gravity, which made $55.7 million over its opening weekend.

"Venom" also dominated at the worldwide box office with $125.2 million, setting an global record for an October opening.

Venom has shattered a North American box office record in October with an $80 million opening weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Venom has received negative reviews. Scoring a dismal 32% on Rotten Tomatoes, many believed the film would be a huge bomb.

At the end of the day, Venom has definitely been an enjoyable and successful start to Sony's Spider-verse of movies.

What Brock Holt and the Red Sox said about history-making cycle
But if things aren't look great the first time through, the bullpen has to be ready to go, specifically the top relievers. I was going to try to hit a home run, but I figured I'd ground out to first, be out in front of something.

Sony's opening effort to create a larger universe for its available Marvel characters shrugged off bad reviews to set a new box office record for an October debut.

In second place was another new release, musical romance "A Star Is Born", which took in $41.25 million.

The third movie in the Rowan Atkinson-starring spy comedy opened to £4.1 million, over a million more than Bradley Cooper's drama.

However, on Metacritic, Venom has a 5.8 user score, way below than the 9.2 user score for Lady Gaga's 'A Star Is Born'. In stark contrast to the overall critical reception, the audience score on the review aggregator is almost 90%. The consensus goes, "With appealing leads, deft direction, and an affecting love story, A Star Is Born is a remake done right - and a reminder that some stories can be just as effective in the retelling".
