That's an October box office record, knocking off previous record-holder "Gravity", which brought in $55.7 million in 2013.

Did you check out Venom this weekend? Meanwhile, Venom has earned 125.2 million dollars worldwide. And that's without China, where a premiere date is still set to be announced.

Venom has shattered a North American box office record in October with an $80 million opening weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

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

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. A Star is Born stormed out of the gates as counter-programming and locked in a $42 million box office.

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'. Considering it was directly competing with A Star Is Born, which also took more than $40m, that's pretty damn impressive.

A Star is Born did much better with the critics, leading to a 91 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The third movie in the Rowan Atkinson-starring spy comedy opened to £4.1 million, over a million more than Bradley Cooper's drama.

First Man, another Oscar-bait movie, is also out - with Ryan Gosling reuniting with the La La Land director to portray Neil Armstrong.
