Venom Sets October Box Office Record With $80 Million Opening Weekend

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

This would easily give Venom the biggest October opening, beating former record holder Gravity, which debuted to $55.7 million in 2014.

Internationally, Venom earned $125.2 million, making for a total pull of $205.2 million.

Superhero blockbuster "Venom" saved the day at the North American box office this weekend, pulling in an estimated $80 million in ticket sales, industry tracker Exhibitor Relations reported Sunday.

The turnout in the elections fell by 4% compared with the last elections and amounted to 54%. That's where the populism kicks in", he said.

Venom has received negative reviews. A lot of ink has been spilled about the power a rotten "Rotten Tomatoes" score has and how damaging it can be to a film's bottom line. The consensus reads, "Venom's first standalone movie turns out to be like the comics character in all the wrong ways - chaotic, noisy, and in desperate need of a stronger attachment to Spider-Man". Starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, it is directed by Cooper.

A Star Is Born, which also stars Lady Gaga, made £900,000 from previews as well, putting it overall at £4 million in this country so far - £100,000 behind Johnny English 3. At the global box office, the film has collected 56 million dollars. So it's no surprise, she had "a blast" working with the singer on the set of A Star Is Born. 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.

While Venom is already in Indian theaters, A Star is Born releases on October 12.
