Venom breaks October opening record with $205 million globally

Columbia Pictures’ Venom is officially the #1 movie in the world and has achieved the biggest opening in October both domestically and internationally. The Spider-Man less spin-off opened to $80 million domestically, obliterating the previous record for highest opening weekend in October set by Gravity (5$5.78 million back in 2013). Internationally, the film took in $125.2 million, beating out the life time gross of some high profile comic book adaptations in some markets. Directed by Ruben Fleischer, the film stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, and Michelle Williams. Venom is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ A Star is Born opened in second place, with a still impressive haul of $41.25 million. The film added another $14 million internationally for a global debut of $54 million. A Star is Born stars four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper and multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga (as Stefani Germanotta), in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Cooper helms the drama, marking his directorial debut.

Warner Bros. upcoming animated adventure Smallfoot fell from second to third place, adding another $14.9 million to its total for a domestic haul of $42.7 million. The animated adventure added  $11.7 from international markets, giving it a worldwide total of $75 million. Smallfoot boasts an impressive voice cast, including Channing TatumJames Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez, Danny DeVito, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, and Jimmy Tatro.

Universal Pictures‘ Night School fell an average 55% in its second weekend, slipping from first to fourth at the domestic box office with $12.2 million. The Kevin Hart comedy has now brought in $46 million at the domestic box office, putting it on the lower end of his filmography and far from the likes of Ride Along or Central Intelligence. Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, Night School also stars Tiffany Haddish, Taran Killam, Rob Riggle, Romany Malco, and Ben Schwartz

Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s The House with a Clock in its Walls third to fifth place in its third weekend of release, bringing in another $7.29 million. The film is now technically Eli Roth’s highest grossing movie (though factoring in inflation adjustments, 2006’s Hostel is still his highest with $66.9 million). The adaptation has now brought in $79.3 million worldwide, just behind Hostel’s worldwide gross of $80.6 million. Based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is directed by Eli Roth and stars Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams and Sunny Suljic.
