Venom lands in China with an incredible $34 Million opening ; becomes first solo superhero film to do so2 min read
Venom is a commercial success , there’s no way denying it now. Standing at a Worldwide gross of about $545 , Venom continues to rack more cash in as it landed in China. According to Forbes , the Ruben Fleischer film opened in China with an incredible $34.2 M including a $2.5 M preview gross , which is already way ahead than Spider-man : Homecoming’s $21.6 M. That , according to Forbes analysts , equals to about a $95 M weekend window in the Middle Kingdom.
The opening day numbers is one of the finest that block buster movies has seen in China. Ahead of Captain America: Civil War ($30m in 2016), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($33m in 2015), Transformers: Age of Extinction ($30m in 2014) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($33m in 2016) , Venom also has the second-biggest day for any superhero movie ever in China, ahead of Ant-Man and the Wasp ($24m), Spider-Man: Homecoming ($21.6m) and Black Panther ($22.7m).
What’s more interesting is the possibilities it could achieve with a nice multiplier over the consecutive weeks. According to the report , it can end its run as much high as $170 M gross in China. That will put the SONY flick’s worldwide gross well above the likes of The Amazing Spider-man 2 , Ant-Man and the Wasp , Doctor Strange , Justice League , Captain America : The Winter Soldier and X-Men : The Days of Future Past.
Things that initiated pretty dim for SONY’s Venom looks very bright for it and a sequel at this point is not even the question. The real question now lies is that what would SONY chose to do after the phenomenal success they got out of this movie ? Would they renew their partnership with Disney to retain Spider-man in the MCU even after Far from Home or bring him back and cross him over with Tom Hardy’s Venom ?
