Despite all of the critical teeth-gnashing and the suspicions that Venom was going to be a turkey of epic proportions, Sony's first Spider-Man spin-off pulled the proverbial rope-a-dope on its first weekend and broke box office records.

Say what you want about how underused some of the key cast are in Venom - particularly Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed, who gets precious little in the way of good material to work with - but it was an ingenious move to hire them.

With those two major openings helped out by other films, this was "easily the best October (box-office) weekend ever", the Associated Press reported.

But "Venom" carries a bad 32% on the tomatometer and scored a recording breaking box office debut anyway.

Despite receiving a bad critical score (31% rotten), Venom now holds an 88% "fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes, while "A Star Is Born" has received a 92% fresh critic score on the website.

However, on Metacritic, Venom has a 5.8 user score, way below than the 9.2 user score for Lady Gaga's 'A Star Is Born'.

A Star Is Born, whose estimates sat at US$30 million, earned US$42.6 million. So it's no surprise, she had "a blast" working with the singer on the set of A Star Is Born.

Third place went to Warner Bros.'s "Smallfoot", with earnings of $14.9 million in its second weekend.

A Star Is Born hit theaters last week, and it's already generating Oscar buzz.
