“A Star is Born” totals up at $42.6 million including previews through today, which is maybe a little softer than expected but just fine.
The main story right now is that the soundtrack has placed 16 slots on the iTunes top 100 including several songs by newly minted hitmaker Bradley Cooper.
“ASIB” has the top three songs on iTunes. It’s also the number 1 album. It couldn’t have done any better.
Back in the comic book world, the “Spider Man” spin off “Venom” did a whopping $80 million for Sony. Sony still holds on to Spider-Man related material for Marvel, and is thanking God– in this case, Stan Lee– that they do. The worldwide appetite for Marvel never abates. “Venom” has $205 million in the bank so far internationally.
