‘Venom’ Launches to $80 Million, ‘A Star Is Born’ Draws $42.6 Million

039;Venom' latest hit to trump bad reviews with great box office while 'A Star Is Born' soars into second spot

That's the best October debut in box office history beating "Gravity's" 2013 debut by almost $25 million. It crushed the worldwide box office as well, earning $125.2 million, led by South Korean receipts of $16.3 million.

But despite the film's opening weekend success, Rotten Tomatoes has the movie ranked at a low 32 percent with an average rating of 4.5 out of 10.

Check back next week for more updates on Venom's box office performance!

OnePlus 6T Arrives October 30
The OnePlus 6T will come with a feature that few, if any, smartphones in the USA have: An in-display fingerprint reader. Rumour has it that the OnePlus 6T will come with 3,700mAh battery, 400mAh more than the OnePlus 6 (3,300mAh).


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

Actor Bradley Cooper says his biggest challenge was to keep going on through the long process of filming his first directorial venture A Star Is Born.

Bringing in acting talent of that calibre - with recent critical acclaim and awards attention behind them too - alongside a powerhouse like Tom Hardy, whose reputation continues to sky-rocket made Venom look like a bankable asset.

"A Star is Born" carries a 91% on the tomatometer and has all the film nerds making Oscar predictions way too early.
