Despite being panned by critics, the movie comfortably broke the October opening weekend record by more than $20 million, according to Box Office Mojo figures.

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

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

But despite the film's opening weekend success, Rotten Tomatoes has the movie ranked at a low 32 percent with an average rating of 4.5 out of 10. In stark contrast to the overall critical reception, the audience score on the review aggregator is almost 90%.


This weekend we finally saw the release of Ruben Fleischer's Venom starring Tom Hardy.

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.

A Star Is Born, which also stars Lady Gaga, made £900,000 from previews as well, putting it overall at £4 million in this country so far - £100,000 behind Johnny English 3. However, the role also came with a bit of pressure, especially because Shangela said Gaga "handpicked" her to be in the film. That's an worldwide record for an October opening, Variety reports.

"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.
