BOX OFFICE: “Venom 2” devours all, $90 million opening weekend

Projections were as low as $40 million and as high as $80.

Too low. Tom Hardy is a Money making marvel, Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson deserve bonuses. Andy Serkis hath directed a blockbuster.

Yeah, “Let There be Carnage” is a noisy gory bore. A bit worse than the other genre bores that preceded it this year.

But it made more moolah than “Widow,” “Shang Chi,” any of them on opening weekend.

“Addams Family 2” pulled in $18, not awful. Not good at all.

“Shang Chi” fell off at long last but is over $206 domestically, total. $5.6 million this weekend.

Everybody watched the “Sopranos” prequel on HBO Max. But $5 million for the pilot to a new “Many Saints of Newark” series? Found money.

Figures from Exhibitor Relations.
