A Star is Born nabbed the No. 2 global spot, bringing its global gross to $74.7 million and shooting past the $200 million mark for its total worldwide tally. That's the second-best October opening of all time, behind only Venom, which opened earlier this month to the tune of $80 million.

Directed by David Gordon Green, the film stars Jamie Lee Curtis once again as Laurie Strode.

In the film, Curtis reprises her role of Laurie Strode from the 1978 original. The film now sits at $126 million domestically with another $74.7 million from worldwide markets, giving it a global total of $201 million.

Tom Hardy stars as a journalist who becomes the super powerful host for an alien creature. Venom is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal.

Rounding out the top five is Universal's "First Man", which notched $8.5 million this weekend for a total of $30 million. Domestically the biopic has now brought in $29.9 million, a red alert for the mid-budget sized drama (estimated to have a $60 million budget).

The Hate U Give, meanwhile, expanded into wide release with so-so attendance (0.8 million) but the chance of further success given its rare 'A+' grade via CinemaScore polling.
