Last week, the superhero film Venom became the highest-grossing film in North America, grossing around $ 80 million.
In Sony’s Marvel Universe Venom, Tom Hardy stars as a journalist, and his power grows when an alien enters his body. Venom, the anti-superhero character, is the villain in Spider-Man in the comic book.
Venom, which has been widely criticized by film critics, also received only 32% of its reviews on movie review site rottentomatos. Venom, however, easily broke the box office record for October films with just over $ 20 million, and has already grossed more than $ 125 million internationally. Venom cost more than $ 100 million to make, but that’s about enough for a superhero movie.
Second on the list of highest-grossing films was A Star is Born, which grossed $ 41.25 million. A Star is Born, a remake of the 1937 film under that name, debuted as director of Bradley Cooper. In A Star is Born, Kupa plays an artist who falls in love with a young singer (Lady Gaga). Venom and A Star is Born sold a combined 175.5 million tickets last week in the US and Canadian cinemas, marking the best weekend in October.
