‘Venom’ Breaks Records, ‘A Star Is Born’ Shines at the Box Office
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.
