Box Office Mojo

I thought the commercials looked good, and the reviews were all good/great/5 Star.
I want to see this.

But it’s not something I’m compelled to see in the theatre. Perfectly fine to see it on my own couch.
I guess a lot of people thought the same way.


#3025

So is Venom officially a hit?


#3026

Box Office Mojo says budget at $100m, worldwide take $378m. So yes it is a hit. Nearly 4 times the budget on a second weekend so more to come.

I have no interest in seeing it in the cinema but good for them. Somewhere at this very moment a bunch of lawyers are trying to figure out how to do a crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.

It also got a release for China, so it should do a nice extra chunk there… So yeah, Sony are probably pleased… particularly because of that really bad couple of days before release :smile:

Yeah, I think First Man has more of a problem with the subject matter, really. I mean, yeah, it was an incredible feat and all that, but maybe one that’s a better fit for documentaries? It’s such a well-known story, and one that we all know the ending of… for me personally at least, I just don’t have much of an interest in seeing this. In spite of liking Whiplash and La La Land (and Gosling).

But it only had one song.


#3031

Venom managed it without any songs!


#3032

Agreed, Dave.


#3033

#3034

Unless Venom sings it in the movie himself, I don’t think it’s quite the same.


#3035

There’s always the sequel


#3036

Venom 2: The Secret Of The Ooze.


#3037

Wait, there’s no songs in Venom?

Well, shit, I’m not watching that crap now.

#3039

Marvel should cancel Far From Home asap, and let Sony do this.


#3040

I just think you have a vested interest in movie stars called Tom.


#3041

That’s why they cast Tom Hanks as Carnage.


#3042

And Tom Hollander as Toxin.


#3043

That’s actually not bad.
