Fighting it out for a place at the top of the box office were two film that couldn't be more different, Venom is a super villain movie from Sony and A Star Is Born is a romantic drama from Warner

A Star Is Born

Venom

The super villain movie based in the Spider-Man universe hit the right note with movie goers this weekend and scored an excellent $80 million debut.

The film stars Tom Hardy as the title character and is directed by Ruben Fleischer and despite mixed reviews sets records for an October debut in the US and has set up a new Marvel (not MCU) franchise.

A Star Is Born

Directed by Bradly Cooper and starring himself and Lady Ga Ga the dramatic comedy scored well with reviews but didn't quite have what it takes to beat a Marvel super villain (hero) movie and made its debut with $41.2 million, half that of Venom.

Smallfoot

The animated comedy is at number 3 this week with a second weekend gross of $14.9 million which brings the films total US gross to $42.7 million after 2 weeks of release.

Night School

After an impressive top spot debut last weekend the romantic comedy falls hard this week to number 4 after taking $12.2 million, this brings the films total gross to $46.7 million after 2 weeks of release.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

The Eli Roth directed film has done really well at the box office and on its third week takes $7.2 million which brings the films total US gross to $55 million.
