Clay Enos  Warner Bros

The strong domestic openings pushed the weekend's total business to about $174 million, or 15% above the prior mark of $151.5 million set in 2015 when Matt Damon's "The Martian" opened, according to comScore. "Venom" smashed the record for an October opening, topping the $55.8 million launch of "Gravity" by 43%.

Box office stats courtesy of Box Office Mojo. Meanwhile, Venom has earned 125.2 million dollars worldwide. The Tom Hardy starring comic book film will break the record for an October movie debut by the time the box offices close on Sunday night.

Venom has hit the ground running at the box office and it seems a new franchise is born at Sony.

Wenk mentioned that he's still "just beginning the process" with the comic book movie project, but this comes as a major surprise because the web-slinger - who had a key role in Eddie Brock becoming Venom - played no role in the Lethal Protector's new movie; however, Sergei becomes "Kraven the Hunter" well before he ever meets the wall-crawler in NY.
