  • Venom Box Office Collections Day 2

The dire reviews seem to have done nothing to keep folks away from Venom over the weekend as it pulled in $80 million, breaking the opening weekend record for October by around $25 million (set by Gravity in 2013). It crushed the global box office as well, earning $125.2 million, led by South Korean receipts of $16.3 million. It holds a 32% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.

The unlikely dynamic duo of "Venom" and "A Star Is Born" have livened up the fall moviegoing season with the best October weekend of all time in North America.

However, on Metacritic, Venom has a 5.8 user score, way below than the 9.2 user score for Lady Gaga's 'A Star Is Born'. In stark contrast to the overall critical reception, the audience score on the review aggregator is almost 90%.
