Let There Be Money! The first box-office reports are saying that the highly anticipated movie Venom: Let There be Carnage earned $90.1 million, which is the second-biggest opening for a movie released in October (2019 movie Joker is still the first), and the biggest opening since the pandemic began.
This is a pretty impressive number, especially when you take into account that Venom 2 earned even more than its predecessor on the first weekend ($80.2 million). Also, it’s important to know Let There Be Carnage had a regular theatrical release unlike, for example, Black Widow and The Suicide Squad which were both released in theaters and on respective streaming services of their developer companies (Disney+ and HBOMax).
This box-office success could finally mean that theaters are finally coming back to the life they had before the pandemic. We still have two more Marvel films to get before the end of the year, and only time will tell how will the pandemic influence their box-office results.
Directed by Andy Serkis and starring Tom Hardy in the main role, Venom: Let There be Carnage now plays in theaters.
