    John answers viewers questions about Sony's Venom movie projected box office take.
    Andy Coffee writes, With Venom now getting a PG-13 rating and we’re getting closer and closer to the release, I wanted to know what you think the film will do on opening weekend? Some were saying as low as $30 million. How do you think it’ll do?

    I could see Venom breaking the record for October. That isn't a huge number to beat.

    What if Venom makes a lot of money and is also very good. The executives at Sony might think, “You know what would make even more money? Spider-Man v Venom.” I’ve listened to your opinions on the matter John, but honestly I think Sony will want Spider-Man back regardless of how Venom does.

    I personally don't know anyone who is going to go see Venom. Most of my friends agree it just doesn't look good at all, Venom himself looks off, the CGI looks sub par, the dialogue is horrible, and it feels like a movie from the early 2000's.
    Also, I see it the other way around. If Venom does well, Sony will pull Spider-man from the MCU to square off against Venom in their own movies but if it tanks they will work out a long term deal for Spidey to stay in the MCU.

      George Harry 9 months ago

      oX Poo Xo the dialogue is spot on but ya it does seem pretty lame it’ll only be pg 13 and still won’t have spiderman in it. Still tho that dialogue is directly pulled from the comics. “Turd in the wind” does sound lame but his character was invented in the 90s. Turd in the wind is spot on for the 90s

  • Top5NoQuestions
    Top5NoQuestions 9 months ago +2

    I believe it'll open around 80 to 90 million. Y'all just don't know how many people are pumped for this movie. Even people I didn't even think knew about Venom are ready to see it.

  • Top5NoQuestions
    Top5NoQuestions 9 months ago +1

    That bad ass trailer did it. I know so many people excited to see it.

  • Hitmonkey
    Hitmonkey 9 months ago +3

    I think between $50-65m opening with a huge drop-off in the second weekend. Also breaking the October record isn't impressive when hardly any other big movies have ever been released in the month.

      The Narrator 9 months ago

      Adrian Steven Din I’m not hating on it. I really hope it’s good. Sony just worries me a bit. I just think Halloween is going to be a humongous film. It’s going to be the biggest horror film released close to Halloween in years.

    No way this movie does under 40mill as some were saying. Venom does at least 55-60. HUGE cult following and people love Tom Hardy

    Sony is making the film on 100 million dollars budget. So, opening weekend is going to be interesting. I hope the film does well, but I don't see a lot mainstream folks going out of their way to

    Well, to be fair, if it comes in at $20 mil, then Sony execs will be popping bottles. Just, different types of bottles.

  • Said Charanek
    Said Charanek 9 months ago

    am i wrong to still think sony should keep the Spidey License? tbh id rather them have the property and include venom and all in the films then have them separate. sure sony isnt consistent with positive reviewed movies but at least we can have a light/dark version of the characters and step into that darker world of spiderman, whereas disney Marvel studios at this point wont go that route.
    hence my slight disappointment in xmen returning to marvel

    • 1D4ever

    A $65-$70 million opening is a good reasonable spot for Venom.

      @Adrian Steven Din, aren't all predictions assumptions? So wouldn't it make make all predictions stupid? Which in turn makes your comment pointless?

  • Rose Ryan
    Rose Ryan 9 months ago

    I don't know why anyone is surprised at projected opening numbers. A lot of comic book fans love Venom ( even if they dislike that the film doesn't have the Spidey angle) and a lot of regular movie goers like horror films. At the very least, it has those fans are on board and even those who think Sony will screw it up, will be curious. I, personally, have no interest in seeing the film, but can understand how others will want to be there opening weekend
    Sony won't be happy with just making a profit; they netted 70 million on the last Spidey film that they made. It wasn't enough for them to keep the franchise going. If the film has critical success as well as Box Office, then they're on to something.

    • Supersky GMNG
      Supersky GMNG 9 months ago +1

      Rose Ryan yeah, I don't see this ending well for them at all. Hell, not gonna even see it since I don't want to support this stupid idea of a spider-less universe

    • Rose Ryan
      Rose Ryan 9 months ago

      Sony is much like WB in their thinking, always putting the cart before the horse. If it does fail, they'll either continue with what they have announced or they will completely retool their thinking on their 'universe'. At this point, it's premature to think that people won't like the film. Sony will just need to cross that bridge IF that happens.

    • Supersky GMNG
      Supersky GMNG 9 months ago +1

      Rose Ryan but if isn’t we’ll received and barely makes any money, then why continue if people didn’t like the first film

      @Josh Perkins
      You can't compare any comic book movie to the dark knight because those movies were directed by Christopher Nolan who is probably one of the best film directors of the modern era. Warner Brothers can't even mimic those movies which is why BvS was such a miss for the studio because they tried to mimic Nolan's "Dark" portal and it completely went sideways on them. Second you might get a little blood in a PG-13 film but and by "GUTS" what you really mean is Gore which they aren't allowed to show if the film is rated PG-13 so get your facts straight. Three I never said all comic book movies should be R, I do believe however there are certain characters that work better and do fit that model. Wolverine, Deadpool, Venom, could all work within the confines of a PG-13 film however going R rated let's you tell a better story because the director has alot more creative control which means a better overall movie if it's done right. Also you have characters that can only work in and R-rated setting, Blade, Punisher, Moonknight, and in this case most specifically Carnage. Who from all the rumors is supposed to show up as a cameo and this film and with out that R rated stamp you can never do him justice in a live action film.

      @Josh Perkins
      Get over it? If this is a solo Venom film without spiderman then why wouldn't you go R-rated? It makes no sense at all, and your wrong Venom dosent warrant an R-rating for nudity or some shit like that. Swearing yes but more than anything fuck blood, Venom needs to have gore. And I dont care what anyone says you can get away with Venom in PG-13, he'll suck but there is no way you can do Carnage any kind of justice unless he's in an R-rated movie.

    Sony should quit while they're ahead. Spider-Man shouldn't be franchised into its own cinematic universe. Just stick with the Marvel • Disney plan, at least that won't fail!

      Respected Knight and we have to add marketing budget to that as well, so if the total is 200 million and they have to make double to break even, then they’re gonna have problems
