  • Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born

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

"Venom" also dominated at the global box office with $125.2 million, setting an worldwide record for an October opening. Both movies have done better than original projections, although Venom's low scoring amongst critics might stop it from having a good follow-up weekend.

Tom Hardy starrer Venom opened at 80 million dollars at the USA box office, breaking the October opening weekend record by a huge margin.

Despite receiving a bad critical score (31% rotten), Venom now holds an 88% "fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes, while "A Star Is Born" has received a 92% fresh critic score on the website.

The Other Woman actor expressed words of warmth not just directed at Gaga, but Cooper as well.


"Venom" pulled off its big box office success despite some terrible reviews.

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.

A Star is Born is in theaters now.

"A Star Is Born" holds a 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes and rode that buzz to a very strong opening weekend for an awards film.

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.
