The Little Monsters - fans of Lady Gaga - had reportedly written bad reviews of Venom, recognising its toxic box-office threat to A Star Is Born, which stars the singer and Bradley Cooper.

Despite receiving a bad critical score (31% rotten), Venom now holds an 88% "fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes, while "A Star Is Born" has received a 92% fresh critic score on the website.

Venom already had a record-setting Thursday night preview ($10 million), getting ahead of 2011's Paranormal Activity 3 ($8 million).

The film, the official launch of Sony's Marvel Universe, stars Tom Hardy as a journalist who becomes the host for an alien symbiote that gives him superpowers. However, since the last version of the film was made in 1976 - starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson - many may not have seen it and/or may have forgotten how it ends, not to mention the previous version alluded to suicide and did not depict it.
