Box-Office Mojo reports the PG-13 anti-superhero flick scored a more than respectable $80 million, beating Gravity's $55.8 million opening as the biggest October opening weekend of all-time. It holds a 32% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
But "Venom" carries a bad 32% on the tomatometer and scored a recording breaking box office debut anyway. Considering it was directly competing with A Star Is Born, which also took more than $40m, that's pretty damn impressive.
Pep Guardiola confirms shock team news ahead of Liverpool clash
Against Guardiola, Klopp tends to demand a faster, more direct approach to try to exploit City's high defensive line. I suspect he won't change and will hope Klopp's side are exhausted from the midweek trip to Napoli .
Tom Hardy starrer Venom opened at 80 million dollars at the USA box office, breaking the October opening weekend record by a huge margin. The film, which stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, features a ton of incredible original music. 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 strong domestic openings pushed the weekend's total business to about $174 million, or 15% above the prior mark of $151.5 million set in 2015 when Matt Damon's "The Martian" opened, according to comScore.
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. At the global box office, the film has collected 56 million dollars.
