'Venom' sets October box office record with $80 million as 'Star is Born' soars

Warner Bros., which premiered “A Star Is Born” last month at the Venice Film Festival, previewed the film in special advance screenings in the days ahead of opening, adding an additional $ 1.3 million in ticket sales. The fifth version of the oft-remade tale, which cost about $ 40 million to make, had been in development at Warner Bros. for decades, with earlier versions to potentially star Whitney Houston or Beyoncé.
