With those two major openings helped out by other films, this was "easily the best October (box-office) weekend ever", the Associated Press reported.
Wenk mentioned that he's still "just beginning the process" with the comic book movie project, but this comes as a major surprise because the web-slinger - who had a key role in Eddie Brock becoming Venom - played no role in the Lethal Protector's new movie; however, Sergei becomes "Kraven the Hunter" well before he ever meets the wall-crawler in NY. Venom marks the first attempt by Sony to build a comic-book universe of their own by using supporting characters of the Spiderverse whose rights Sony owns.
Venom also dominated the worldwide box office with $125.2 million, setting an global opening record.
Also featuring singer Lady Gaga, the film will release by Warner Bros Pictures in India on October 12. All of which suggests the aliens are going to absolutely love the Venom/A Star Is Born cross-over film someone is frantically pitching as we speak. That's a whole $2 million above the last movie to hold the title, 2011's Paranormal Activity 3, and over double what A Star Is Born made in its Thursday night preview-which was about $4.55 million.
