'Venom,' 'A Star is Born' Lead Another Weekend

Cast member Tom Hardy attends the premiere for the movie "Venom" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., October 1, 2018.

As for newcomers at the box office, the Ryan Gosling-led First Man, which is also receiving plenty of critical praise, looks to be settling for third place with $16.8 million.

Columbia Pictures' Venom maintained the #1 position at the global box office, bringing in $35.7 million domestically and another $69.7 million internationally for a global haul of $105.4 million.

Rock "n" roll weepie: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born which hung onto second spot for a second week with $28 million. Originally expected to bring in somewhere between $18-20 million, the film earned a less-than-perfect B+ CinemaScore from audiences. Universal's distribution president Jim Orr said that the "First Man" results were not disappointing, given that the core audience is an older demographic. "This weekend's results are a just a starting point. This is very much a marathon, not a sprint".

Another reason Jack likely won't get a title, is due to the Royal Collection Trust official wedding china for Jack and Eugenie. After the royal wedding Harry was gifted the Dukedom of Sussex, while Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex.

The films, both backed by considerable commercial push, managed to edge out the critically-acclaimed First Man which finds star Ryan Gosling reuniting with La La Land filmmaker Damien Chazelle for a biographical drama surrounding Neil Armstrong's landing on the moon. The comedy fell from number four last weekend, but is still doing pretty well in theaters, despite a 28 percent Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

In fourth place is the Goosebumps sequel, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, which is eyeing $15.7 million. Universal's third weekend of "Night School" followed in sixth with $8 million at 2,870 sites giving the Kevin Hart-Tiffany Haddish comedy almost $60 million.

Venom's take boosts the massive $80 million it scared up last weekend. And, finally, in fifth place is newcomer Bad Times at the El Royale, which looks to be settling for a $7.9 million opening. The opening was a bit of a disappointment, especially considering that it has some pretty strong reviews and features Dakota Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Cynthia Erivo, Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm, and Nick Offerman.
