‘Venom’ Conquers Box Office Again as ‘First Man,’ ‘Goosebumps 2’ Open to $16 Million

  • The Wrap
October continues to be very good for Sony Pictures as “Venom” stays atop the box office charts with a strong $35 million second weekend. Combined with the $16 million opening for “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween,” that’s enough to push the studio’s total annual domestic gross past $1 billion for a second straight year.

After scoring the best October opening ever with $80 million, “Venom” has found a foothold with general audiences this weekend as it holds its drop-off to 55 percent, well within the range for many Marvel Studios films in their second weekend. Though the drop is likely to be steeper next weekend with the arrival of Universal’s “Halloween,” it won’t faze Sony at all. The $100 million blockbuster has already made its money with a 10-day total of $142 million and a global total of well over $300 million.

A Movie Theater Accidentally Showed A Preview For Heriditary Before Peter Rabbit

A Movie Theater Accidentally Showed A Preview For Heriditary Before Peter Rabbit
A theater in Australia had to give some free tickets out after a screening of Peter Rabbit was preceded by a trailer for A24's latest horror film Hereditary. For those not familiar with the latter film, this is the upcoming possession horror where a woman's deceased mother begins to possess her grandchildren and haunt their family. If you watch the trailer, you'll notice things kind of start off like a preview for another children's film, but then derail very quickly:

Theater goers reported parents were seen sprinting out of the theater with their children in tow and screaming at the projectionist to turn the trailer off. All patrons received a complimentary ticket for the potentially scarring event, which should smooth things over.

Sony Honchos Rally the Troops at All-Hands Meeting (Exclusive)
Fresh off the box-office success of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” Sony honchos — chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, studio chief Tom Rothman and newly-installed TV chief Mike Hopkins — held an all-hands meeting Thursday to talk about how Sony is positioning itself in the era of studio consolidation and fierce competition from streaming giants.

Thousands of employees from across the various studio divisions gathered inside Stage 15, the largest sound stage on the Culver City, Calif. studio lot. The meeting was also live-streamed internally to all Sony employees worldwide.

The gathering occurred amid a number of headwinds Sony faces, as well as changes like the sudden stepping down of Sony Corp. CEO Kaz Hirai in February. Seen as a big booster of the entertainment assets, Hirai’s departure sparked speculation of whether Sony’s film and television studios would be sold.

Christine Birch Steps Down as Sony Pictures Domestic Marketing Head

  • The Wrap
Christine Birch has resigned her post as Sony Pictures president of domestic marketing after a two-week probe into her workplace behavior, including reports that she smoked marijuana at the office, insiders told TheWrap.

Official word of her resignation came down from Sony’s marketing chief Josh Greenstein on Wednesday, who said Birch originally approached him about resigning in January.

In late March, Variety reported that Birch’s marketing subordinates had filed complaints about her behavior — including that she vaped marijuana during work hours, despite numerous warnings to stop.

Also Read: Sony Pictures Names Michael Helfand, Joe Matukewicz Worldwide Acquisitions Heads

Multiple individuals familiar with the workplace downplayed the seriousness of the investigation. Birch was asked to take time off during the probe, one of the insiders said, but was never formally suspended.

That individual, and a second one who spoke to TheWrap, speculated that the press leak likely came from Birch’s staff in an attempt to force her resignation. Andre Caraco, co-president of domestic marketing, will fill Birch’s shoes for now.

Greenstein applauded her recent successes like the record-setting “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

Birch herself thanked studio head Tom Rothman and Greenstein, saying “I’m very proud of the team and I’m incredibly grateful … now, I’m ready for a new challenge.”

Dear colleagues,

Following an extraordinarily impressive run in Columbia’s Domestic Marketing department, Christine Birch is stepping down from her post as President of Domestic Marketing.

Christine approached us about leaving in January 2018, following the record-setting performance of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Under her tenure, Sony’s domestic marketing department produced some of its best results in years, including Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Magnificent Seven, Peter Rabbit, and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Below is a short note from Christine regarding her departure:

“The transformation of the Columbia Pictures marketing department has been one of the most rewarding chapters of my career. I’m very proud of the team and I’m incredibly grateful to Tom Rothman and Josh Greenstein for supporting my vision. Now, I’m ready for a new challenge.”

Christine’s direct reports will report to Andre Caraco, Co-President of Domestic Marketing, on an interim basis.

Please join me in thanking Christine for her hard work and dedication to Sony Pictures, and in wishing her all the best in the next chapter of her career.
