Dune Takes The Weekend Box Office

Dune

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.

Rounding out the top five was Ron’s Gone Wrong which earned $7.3 million in its first weekend. The animated film also grossed $10 million to bring its worldwide total to $17.3 million.

In comic films…

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings grossed an estimated $2 million to bring its domestic total to $2221 million. The film also grossed about $400,000 at the international box office where it now stands out $196.6 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $417.6 million. The film currently stands at #7 for the year and not likely to climb much higher as #6 is held by No Time to Die.

Black Widow looks like it has ended its domestic run. Domestically, the film has grossed a little under $183.7 million. The international total has moved adding about $200,00 million over the week where it now stands at $195.9 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $379.6 million.

Old looks like its run has completely ended. Domestically, the film has grossed $48.2 million. Internationally, the film stood at $41.9 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed a little over $90.1 million.

The Suicide Squad remained steady during the week. Domestically, the film has grossed $55.8 million. The film has also earned $111.6 million internationally. Worldwide, the film has grossed $167.4 million.

Initial numbers have 21 films earning $94,013,997 from 29,198 theaters. That’s a dip from last weekend’s 46 films which earned $108,902,605 from 27,598 theaters. It also ends the string of weekends where the box office grossed over $100 million. The average earning was $3,219.88 this past weekend, a drop from the previous weekend’s $3,946.03.

No Time to Die

It’s two weekends in a row that the weekend box office has totaled over $100 million. No Time to Die led the weekend with a little over $56 million.

Venom and Carnage Tear Apart the Weekend Box Office

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Venom: Let There Be Carnage was a beast of a film opening with $90.1 million, the best domestic debut for a film this year. The opening shows good things for the franchise and the original film was not a fluke. That movie opened with $80.3 million in 2018 and went on to gross $856.1 million. That has the sequel out-performing the original even during the pandemic, an impressive debut. It should also have Sony excited that they’re heading in the right direction for their Spider-Man franchises and bodes well for the next film to release.

The film also debuted internationally where it grossed $13.8 million for a total of $103.9 million worldwide. We’ll see how the film holds up next weekend when it faces some competition.

Internationally, the winner for the weekend was No Time to Die, the latest James Bond film. Opening domestically next weekend, the film earned $119.1 million in its first weekend at the international box office.

Back here…

The Addams Family 2 debuted in second place with a little over $18 million. No international number was released. The first film opened with $30.3 million in 2019. But, without major kids competition, the film should do well this Halloween season.

In third place was Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The film dropped from last weekend’s first place once real competition entered the ring. The film grossed an estimated $6 million to bring its domestic total to $206.1 million. That makes it the top grossing domestic film of the year. The film also earned about $13.9 million over the week to bring its international total to $180.8 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $386.9 million where it has now moved into fifth place for the year.

The fourth place belonged to The Many Saints of Newark. The film also debuted on HBO Max and the word of mouth is generally not good. The Sopranos prequel earned an estimated $5 million domestically and $2.3 million internationally. With just $7.3 million, availability on HBO Max, and bad word of mouth, expect this one to see a quick death at the box office.

Rounding out the top five was Dear Evan Hanson which was second last weekend. The film grossed an estimated $2.5 million to bring that to $11.8 million. The film has not returned and international figures.

In comic films…

Black Widow came in at #16 with an estimated $26,000. Domestically, the film has grossed a little over $183.6 million. The international total has moved adding about $400,00 million over the week where it now stands at $195.2 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $378.8 million.

Old was #17 with an estimated $25,000. Domestically, the film has grossed just under $48.2 million. Internationally, the film stood at $41.9 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed a little over $90.1 million.

The Suicide Squad didn’t show up on the weekend chart but the film looks like it made about $200,000 over the week. Domestically, the film has grossed $55.8 million. The film added about $700,000 to its international gross bringing that to $111.6 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $167.4 million.

Initial numbers have 51 films earning $129,053,489 from 32,029 theaters. That’s almost $100 million more than last weekend’s 51 films which earned $38,699,520 from 34,852 theaters. The average earning was $4,029.27 this past weekend, a massive increase from the previous weekend’s $1,110.40.

Sony Moves Up Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s Release Date

After rumors of the film being delayed into 2022, Sony has done the opposite and moved up the release date for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Originally set to be released on October 15, the film will now be released on October 1. The decision is based on the “success” of Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings which saw an estimated $90 million Labor Day weekend.

Tickets will go on sale Wednesday for the film which will screen in 3D, PLF, and Imax.

The original Venom was released on October 3 and opened with $80.3 million. The sequel would have seen competition with Halloween Kills if it kept its October 15 opening, so the move is not unexpected and likely helps boost the film’s first weekend gross. October will still be a touch month with No Time to Die opening on October 8, Halloween Kills on October 15, and Dune on October 22.
