Lady Gaga's ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney 'proud' of 'A Star Is Born'

What the ‘Venom’ post-credits scene means A scene from the movie"Venom

"Venom" smashed the record for an October opening, topping the $55.8 million launch of "Gravity" by 43%.

Venom also dominated the worldwide box office with $125.2 million, setting an global opening record. That's an global record for an October opening, Variety reports. And that's without China, where a premiere date is still set to be announced. However, it was the exact opposite, setting an October box office record and an audience "fresh" score of 89%. It holds a 32% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.

Sony's first film in their own Marvel movie universe, separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Spider-Man, the Venom movie, had a lot of hype behind it before its release, and most of it was actually pretty bad.

Venom earned $80 million domestic, which is well past Deadline's projected $65 million estimate.

With those two major openings helped out by other films, this was "easily the best October (box-office) weekend ever", the Associated Press reported.

Animated movie Smallfoot finished third with US$14.4 million, followed by comedy Night School, with US$12.3 million.

A Star Is Born hit theaters last week, and it's already generating Oscar buzz.
