Sony's comic book creature feature starring Tom Hardy nabbed the No. 1 spot with an estimated $80 million haul at the domestic box office.
Despite all of the critical teeth-gnashing and the suspicions that Venom was going to be a turkey of epic proportions, Sony's first Spider-Man spin-off pulled the proverbial rope-a-dope on its first weekend and broke box office records. It crushed the worldwide box office as well, earning $125.2 million, led by South Korean receipts of $16.3 million. The film opens in Japan on November 2, however no Chinese release date has been announced.
But "Venom" carries a awful 32% on the tomatometer and scored a recording breaking box office debut anyway. At the global box office, the film has collected 56 million dollars.
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. Considering it was directly competing with A Star Is Born, which also took more than $40m, that's pretty damn impressive.
