  • Venom Box Office Collections Day 2

But it seems to have resonated much more with moviegoers: it has a B+ score from viewers on CinemaScore, and in the USA it easily shattered Gravity's record to earn the best October opening of all time.

Superhero blockbuster "Venom" saved the day at the North American box office this weekend, pulling in an estimated $80 million in ticket sales, industry tracker Exhibitor Relations reported Sunday.

Best Tweets - 'Just in: Riyad Mahrez penalty has landed'
If it is an open game at Anfield, you don't even have one percent of a chance because they are so good, they play for that. Not struggling in the sense of playing badly but I felt as though Liverpool just had the edge on them when I was watching.

Along with a really strong domestic showing, "Venom" made even more money from the foreign box office - pulling in a better than expected $125 million.

Venom has received negative reviews.

USA job growth slows but unemployment rate falls to 3.7%
The trade gap increased 6.4 per cent to a six-month high of $53.2 billion in August, the Commerce Department reported on Friday. The US unemployment rate fell to a 48-year low in September even after Hurricane Florence kept many Americans away from work.

That movie went on to earn £30.7 million overall in the United Kingdom, and though it seems unlikely that Venom will go quite that high, bosses will no doubt be relieved that the negative buzz from critics didn't affect ticket sales.

Unlike Venom, A Star is Born has a favourable critical reception.

Supreme Court Nominee Kavanaugh Clears Crucial Senate Hurdle
Hundreds of protesters against Kavanaugh had gathered on Saturday on the grounds of the Capitol and at the Supreme Court. Trump said on Saturday he was "100 percent" certain that Ford named the wrong person when she accused Kavanaugh.

In their tweet, the pop duo encourage fans to "make the right decision today", implying music lovers should purchase a copy of "Trench" instead of the "Star Is Born" soundtrack, with band members Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun portraying Gaga and co-star Bradley Cooper. THR also reports that the strength of these two movies delivered an "all-time high of roughly $174 million for the month of October". However, the role also came with a bit of pressure, especially because Shangela said Gaga "handpicked" her to be in the film.
