Released on Friday, October 1 in the United States, “Venom 2” grossed $ 100 million on American soil in five days. He thus equals “Shang-Chi”, who had reached this milestone in so much time.
Venom 2 – Shang-Chi, same fight. Like the film of Destiny Daniel Cretton, that of Andy Serkis took only five days to cross the milestone of $ 100 million in revenue on American soil. It thus equals the 2021 record in this area.
Released on October 1 in American theaters, Venom 2 is even a little better than Shang-Chi, if we take into account the fact that the latter had benefited from Labor Day Monday, a holiday in the United States, to accentuate its good start.
If the figures seem less impressive in times of pandemic, at a time when blockbusters can no longer reach the billion dollar mark in the world, Venom 2 starts off better than its predecessor. Released in 2018, Ruben Fleischer’s film had to wait six days to cross the threshold of 100 million greenbacks garnered on American soil.
The first opus having finished its race with 213.5 million dollars in its purse in the United States (and 856 in the world), the second can it do better? If so, that would make him the biggest hit of 2021 on the local market, ahead of… Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. But it will have to resist a competition which promises to be fierce and in particular that of Mourir can wait. Expected this Friday, October 8 across the Atlantic, will the new James Bond reach 100 million in less than five days?
