‘Venom’ breaks records, ‘A Star Is Born’ shines at the box office

Sony's Venom shattered October's record for highest grossing opening weekend. It opened to a domestic box office of $80 million, shattering the previous record set by Gravity of $51 million.

There was also controversy involving Venom and its only true opponent for the box office, A Star is Born (which made a little over $41 million).

But this exceptional box office debut is noteworthy for more reasons than one.

Wenk mentioned that he's still "just beginning the process" with the comic book movie project, but this comes as a major surprise because the web-slinger - who had a key role in Eddie Brock becoming Venom - played no role in the Lethal Protector's new movie; however, Sergei becomes "Kraven the Hunter" well before he ever meets the wall-crawler in NY. 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 film, which stars Gaga in her first major feature role, brought in estimated $42.6 million for its opening in the United States this week.

"Venom" and the critically acclaimed "A Star Is Born" were both able to draw effectively from beyond their core audiences. Always a good sign.

Warner Bros.' second weekend of animated entry "Smallfoot" finished third with $14.4 million at 4,151 venues, followed by Universal's second session of Kevin Hart-Tiffany Haddish comedy "Night School" with $12.3 million at 3,019 locations.

A Star Is Born hit theaters last week, and it's already generating Oscar buzz.
