VENOM officially passes $500M at the worldwide box office


Despite its initial lukewarm welcome by fans and middling reviews Venom has undoubtedly been embraced by the box office. Following another $10.6M weekend in North America the movie has officially crossed the $500M mark worldwide.

At the time of writing the worldwide total for the movie is sitting around $508M. Current domestic figures put the film at around $187.1M, whilst internationally the total is closer to $321M. Based on an approximate $100M budget it seems Sony Pictures have a hit on their hands.

Bare in mind Venom is yet to open in Japan or China and the movie could make up to $700M by the time it exits cinemas. We expect a sequel to be officially announced before the end of the year so watch this space!

One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.

Venom stars Tom Hardy in the lead role. Supporting cast includes Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott and Woody Harrelson. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) from a script by Scott Rosenberg & Jeff Pinkner. Executive producers are David Householter, the legendary Stan Lee and Kelly Marcel.
