'Venom' film poised for $60M-$70M+ debut in early October, against 'A Star is Born' at $25M+

Regardless of the fact that we haven't even hit mid-September yet, Hollywood's already looking at early estimates for the box office weekend of October 5, where it'll be critical darling 'A Star is Born' against yet another superhero movie, 'Venom'. Early October admittedly is also the start of the awards film release season, and just keeps going through the new year.

Sony's 'Venom', a spin-off of Spider-Man of sorts, is estimated to make around $60M-$70M+ its opening weekend (on a $100M budget), while Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's musical 'A Star is Born' may bring in mid to high $20Ms (on a $45M budget).

Also coming out that weekend is 'Bad Times at the El Royale' if you'd rather see that instead. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
