Taking the No. 1 spot this week in spectacular fashion is "Venom" bringing in an estimated $80 million in its first weekend out.

"Venom" pulled off its big box office success despite some bad reviews. That's the best October debut in box office history beating "Gravity's" 2013 debut by almost $25 million. And that's without China, where a premiere date is still set to be announced.

The Tom Hardy-fronted movie, based on a popular Marvel Comics favourite, had received cold reviews from critics, winning only a 31% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

"I know it's his directorial debut and I wish all of them the best; I hope it really does really well, ' said Kinney, who noted that the Grammy-winner 'was in good hands" with the A-list actor.

"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.

According to estimates Sunday, the two very different films fueled an unusually robust October weekend at the North American box office.

Animated movie Smallfoot finished third with US$14.4 million, followed by comedy Night School, with US$12.3 million.

As for next week, Ryan Gosling stars in the new feature film "Oscar Bait".
