Despite negative reviews from critics, Sony’s Venom has proven to be a box office force to be reckoned with. It earned the biggest October opening in history, and it has held up in the days since. Now, its second weekend estimates are in.
Venom grossed an estimated $35.7 million this weekend, retaining the top spot. This is a 55% drop from its opening, which is on par with other modern comic book movies. This brings its domestic total to $142.8 million.
Overseas, Venom took in $69.7 million, bringing its international total to $235.3 million. Its combined worldwide gross is now $378.1 million. The movie had a production budget of just $100 million, not counting marketing costs. So, it’s having no trouble turning a profit for Sony. This is also promising for future installments of Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters (SUMC).
Stay tuned for more box office updates as we have them.
