Dune Takes The Weekend Box Office
It shouldn’t be a surprise, but Dune was the top of the weekend box office with an estimated $40.1 million. The film’s debut is a mixed one with some praising the amount and others saying it fell short of expectations. The x-factor is of course how well the film also did on HBO Max where it debuted simultaneously. Internationally, the film earned $180.6 million to bring the grand worldwide total to $220.7 million after one week. The result is a headscratcher as to what it means for the film’s sequel.
Halloween Kills dipped to second place dropping a whopping 70.7%. The film eared an estimated $14.5 million to bring its domestic total to $73.1 million. Internationally, the film earned about $12.3 million over the week to bring that total to $17.8 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $90.9 million after two weeks.
No Time to Die dropped to third place adding $11.9 million to its domestic total. That now stands at $120 million. Over the week, the film grossed $57.3 million internationally to bring that total to $405.6 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $525.7 million.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage came in fourth place earning an estimated $9.1 million. Domestically, the film has grossed $181.8 million. Internationally, the film grossed $55 million over the week to lift that total to $170.6 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $352.4 million.
