Venom: Let There be Carnage is continuing to dominate the box office.
The sequel has officially crossed $100 million at the domestic box office after just 5 days in theaters. This ties it with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings for the fastest film to cross $100 million at the domestic box office during the pandemic. As if not impressive enough, the film also beat 2018’s Venom to the milestone, with the first film taking 6 days to do so.
This year has been a difficult one for most blockbusters. While hitting $100 million would be easy in a pre-pandemic era, most films have struggled to achieve the feat this year. Marvel Studios’ Black Widow hit $100 million after 6 days in release (with the film also on Disney+ at the time), F9 took 8 days to hit $100 million and A Quiet Place Part II did so in 20 days.
With little to no competition set to hit theaters this weekend, Venom: Let There be Carnage looks likely to rule the box office for a second weekend. The film was directed by Andy Serkis and stars Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson.
