'A Star Is Born' v 'Venom': How Lady Gaga's Little Monsters Are Battling Tom Hardy's Symbiote for Box Office Dominance
WB/Columbia
Lady Gaga Was a Vision at the 'A Star is Born' Premiere

Both films hit theaters on Friday October 5.

Lady Gaga's Little Monsters have been accused of putting out fake reviews of "Venom" in an apparent attempt at beating out box office competition for "A Star Is Born."

Both films hit theaters on Friday.

Some of the confusion seemed to surround the difference between Sony's Marvel Universe (which "Venom" is a part of) and that of Marvel Studios' MCU (think all the "Avengers" movies). The fear of a blockbuster giant like "Infinity War" coming out the same weekend as Gaga's new drama sent the Little Monsters into attack mode, seeking to destroy any chances of Tom Hardy's "Venom" succeeding at the multiplexes.

Gaga's fans apparently spammed Twitter with fake negative reviews about the comic book film, urging people not to see it and to watch "A Star Is Born" instead.

According to BuzzFeed, the Little Monsters have been behind previous trolling campaigns to beat out any perceived competition for the "Born This Way" singer.

Meanwhile, Gaga stans certainly appeared to come out swinging at the alien symbiote (played by Hardy), until some savvy Twitter users began to see a disturbing pattern -- many of the negative "Venom" reviews looked be duplicated multiple times, leading many to suspect foul play.

"I am the biggest marvel fan but I just watched #Venom and I don't know what to say," one very common tweet read. "Easily the worst movie of the year. I expected so much better and now I'm disappointed."

"Extremely disappointed with the let down that #Venom⁠ ⁠⁠was," another highly replicated tweet said. "One of the films I was most excited for turned out to be the WORST film. Hate to say that considering I am the biggest 'Venom' fan... Looks like i'll be taking my family to #AStarIsBorn instead."

Read some the "reviews" below.

"Venom" fans hit back and started to give the Gaga stan Twitter a taste of their own medicine, encouraging moviegoers to see the comic book movie instead.

TooFab has reached out to Gaga's reps and Sony Pictures, but has yet to hear back.

"Venom" reviews haven't reached Rotten Tomatoes yet, however, "A Star Is Born" boasts a 95 percent certified fresh. Both films hit theaters this Friday October 5th.
