‘Venom’ breaks box office records, ‘A Star Is Born’ shines – CNN

New York (CNN Business)Lady Gaga and a popular Spider-Man villain managed to scare up blockbuster ticket sales in October, a month not known for big returns.

Sony’s “Venom” and Warner Bros.’ “A Star Is Born” did so well they helped bring in the best weekend in October history at the box office, according to comScore.
Sony’s comic book creature feature starring Tom Hardy nabbed the No. 1 spot with an estimated $80 million haul at the domestic box office. That’s an October box office record, knocking off previous record-holder “Gravity,” which brought in $55.7 million in 2013.
“Venom” pulled off its big box office success despite some awful reviews. The film holds a 31% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes.
Coming in at No. 2 this weekend is the music-heavy drama “A Star Is Born.”
