It holds a 32% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. The previous record-holder, Alfonso Cuarón's sci-fi thriller Gravity, had earned 55.7 million dollars.

Bringing in acting talent of that calibre - with recent critical acclaim and awards attention behind them too - alongside a powerhouse like Tom Hardy, whose reputation continues to sky-rocket made Venom look like a bankable asset.

Coming in at No. 2 this weekend is the music-heavy drama "A Star Is Born".

For comparison there, Johnny English's first film opened with just £3.4 million back in 2003, while Johnny English Reborn in 2011 arrived to the tune of £5 million - so this latest instalment has arrived in between the two.

Though Venom's domestic haul is impressive, its $125.2 million earnings overseas during its opening weekend further bolsters its total opening weekend gross to $205.2 million, Variety reports.

"A Star Is Born's" big box office is a good start for a film that will likely be a big contender during awards season this winter.

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.

It's also a great kickoff to the year-end movie season at the box office, which includes other potential blockbusters such as "Aquaman" and "Mary Poppins Returns" still on the schedule for the rest of 2018.
