‘Venom’ Sequel Tops Original At Domestic Box Office

by Thomas Tuna

Carnage is still ripping it up.

VenomLet There Be Carnage–the sequel to the 2018 Marvel horror hit–this week passed its predecessor in one important area: domestic box office receipts, according to a report on Deadline.

The sequel–which opened in theaters last October–has hung around long enough to rake in $213,517 million stateside, edging out Venom’s $213,515 million haul. Carnage earned $18,500 at 725 theaters yesterday, pushing it through the tape.

Carnage’s debut weekend last fall pulled down a cool $90 million, which was the benchmark for a pandemic opening until SpiderManNo Way Home swung in with its $260 million coming-out party.

In addition, Carnage this week passed the half-billion-dollar mark globally, checking in now with an impressive $506 million worldwide.

Carnage–directed by Andy Serkis from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel–follows Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), the host of the symbiote Venom, as he battles another symbiote, Carnage, inhabiting the body of serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson).
