VENOM Devours Projections with $205.2m Global Opening Weekend

VENOM Devours Projections with $205.2m Global Opening Weekend

For comparison, Spider-Man Homecoming - the title character of which shares a universe with Venom in the comics - opened to £9.4 million in 2017. 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.

Taking the No. 2 spot this week is the latest iteration of the "A Star Is Born" story bringing in an estimated $41 million and producing buckets of tears along the way. "Venom" smashed the record for an October opening, topping the $55.8 million launch of "Gravity" by 43%.

It was a tough marketplace this weekend, but Johnny English Strikes Again managed to beat A Star Is Born.

In their tweet, the pop duo encourage fans to "make the right decision today", implying music lovers should purchase a copy of "Trench" instead of the "Star Is Born" soundtrack, with band members Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun portraying Gaga and co-star Bradley Cooper. However, the role also came with a bit of pressure, especially because Shangela said Gaga "handpicked" her to be in the film.

Fifth place went to Universal's family-friendly offering "The House With a Clock in Its Walls", which slipped from third place last weekend with takings of $7.3 million.
