Daily Box Office Report
Monday, October 8, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Sonyís Venom took in $9.631 million on Monday to remain in first place at the daily box office for a fourth consecutive day. That represented a 55.0 percent decline from Sundayís performance. The marketplace in general received an added boost on Monday from the Columbus Day holiday in the United States and the Thanksgiving Day holiday in Canada. Venom set a new record for the largest Columbus Day gross of all-time, as it easily surpassed the previous record of $6.201 million set by Gravity on its second Monday back in 2013. The four-day start for Venom stands at a stronger than expected $89.887 million. That places the film 8.6 percent ahead of the recent $82.796 million four-day launch of Ant-Man and The Wasp and 6.0 percent behind the $95.616 million four-day haul of last yearís Logan.

Warnerís A Star is Born also had a terrific day on Monday with a second place take of $6.744 million. That represented the second largest Columbus Day gross of all-time, as A Star is Born also came in above the mentioned previous record holder Gravity. A Star is Born held up very nicely on Monday, as the film was down just 45.3 percent from Sunday. In addition to benefiting from strong word of mouth and the holiday, A Star is Born also received an added boost on Monday from being a daily MoviePass option for the day. A Star is Born passed the $50 million domestic mark yesterday and has grossed a very strong $51.003 million after four days of wide release. The film is running an impressive 28.0 percent ahead of the $39.859 million four-day start of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again earlier this year.

Fellow Warner Bros. release Smallfoot placed in third with $3.052 million. Smallfoot was aided by the Columbus Day holiday in a big way, as the film was down only 35.2 percent from Sunday and up a massive 188.7 percent over last Monday. The eleven-day total for Smallfoot stands at $45.316 million. That is in line with expectations and places the film 14.4 percent ahead of the $39.607 million eleven-day haul of 2016ís Storks.

Universalís Night School claimed fourth place with $1.710 million. Night School decreased 53.8 percent from Sunday and increased 2.2 percent from last Monday. The eleven-day total for Night School stands at $48.701 million, which is in line with expectations and places the film 16.9 percent behind the $58.600 million eleven-day take of 2015ís Get Hard.

Fellow Universal release The House with a Clock in Its Walls rounded out Mondayís top five with $1.413 million. That represented a 40.5 percent decrease from Sunday and a strong 116.3 percent increase over last Monday. The House with a Clock in Its Walls has grossed $56.602 million in 18 days, which places the film a slim 1.5 percent behind the $57.436 million 18-day gross of 2015ís Goosebumps.
