Venom: Let There Be Carnage started rolling out in overseas markets this weekend and earned a solid $62.3 million in the process. Now, the sequel's international total sits at $115.6 million overseas and a mighty $283.7 million worldwide. With just days to go until it tops $300 million, it's fair to say the Venom follow-up has performed pretty well in this pandemic era of box office takings.

It was a good weekend for No Time to Die as well, as Daniel Craig's final Bond movie topped $447.5 million globally and looks set to soon become the #2 Hollywood movie of 2021, surpassing Godzilla vs. Kong to sit behind F9: The Fast Saga. It's surprising not to see a Marvel Studios movie in those top spots, of course, but that comic book universe has been performing much better domestically.

Inevitably, Halloween Kills took a slice out of both those movies in North America this weekend, but with $16.5 million during its third weekend, Venom: Let There Be Carnage has earned over $168 million domestically. Later this week, it will surpass F9 to become the #3 highest-grossing domestic title of 2021 behind Black Widow (#2) and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (#1).

It's still an uncertain time for the box office, and these numbers are obviously well below what they would have been two years ago. However, these results are pretty damn amazing for 2021, even if they do prove that there's still a long way to go before people feel fully confident in that big screen experience. 

As for Halloween Kills, we recently reviewed the movie, concluding that, "Halloween Kills sidelines Jamie Lee Curtis for a laughably bad middle chapter of a trilogy that features heaps of gore and inventive kills, but is ultimately more filler than killer and a real letdown after 2018's Halloween."
