As expected, Venom and A Star Is Born did huge numbers at the weekend box-office.

Venom, the Tom Hardy starring anti-hero action flick raked in $80 million over the three day weekend, shattering the October box office record previously held by Gravity. Combine that with the $41 million that A Star Is Born pulled in this weekend and you wind up with the largest opening weekend for October films ever.
