The Venom 2 box office has crushed all estimates and again proven that people are not afraid of going to movie theaters, just as I have said all along.
Sony estimated Venom 2 at a low $40k for the weekend while industry estimates offered $60k+, but following the Thursday preview night, I said Venom 2 was looking to be on track for $86 million, which wasn’t too far off.
It’s reported that Venom 2 brought in $90.1 million for its opening box office weekend, which crushes those estimates.
It’s also hilarious that some shills are still spinning the pandemic as a reason for various movies failing at the box office and that people were afraid of going to theaters, but guess what? Venom 2 actually also beat the first movie’s box office where there was no pandemic. The first Venom movie released in 2018 made $80.2 million in its debut, so for Venom 2, MORE people came out. A buddy of mine who runs a big movie theater in Los Angeles also said movie theaters are coming back and that this past Saturday was their busiest in October EVER.
This is nice to see in a post-pandemic world and hopes the trend continues till we get back on track with the entertainment world in the theaters. Covid 19 has shaken the world and the fear is still out there for public events but we have to move forward as a society and this is a good sign.
