Venom Movie Sets October Box Office Record

Irene MckinneyOct 10, 2018

Venom released on October 5th, 2018 and managed to clear over $80 million at the domestic box office during its first weekend. This would easily give Venom the biggest October opening, beating former record holder Gravity, which debuted to $55.7 million in 2014. Sony is trying to make films with great comic book characters, but with their own flare and style, rather than copying the Marvel format or even the DC format.

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

Venom already had a record-setting Thursday night preview ($10 million), getting ahead of 2011's Paranormal Activity 3 ($8 million).

'Venom' sets October record with US$80M; 'Star Is Born' soars

Both movies have done better than original projections, although Venom's low scoring amongst critics might stop it from having a good follow-up weekend.

Kind words: Taylor Kinney said he "couldn't be more proud" of his ex-girlfriend Lady Gaga, 32, following her lauded performance in A Star Is Born. The soundtrack for A Star Is Born is now available on all streaming platforms. All of which suggests the aliens are going to absolutely love the Venom/A Star Is Born cross-over film someone is frantically pitching as we speak. 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".
