Dune 2 Breaks $200 Million Mark

Denis Villeneuve's Dune 2, distributed by Legendary and Warner Bros., cemented its status as a box office heavyweight in its third weekend.

The epic sci-fi saga became the first film of 2024 to surpass $200 million domestically, earning an estimated $29.1 million from 3,847 theaters. With an international haul of $51.2 million, Dune 2's global earnings soared to $494.7 million, surpassing its predecessor's box office performance despite the challenges of the pandemic era.

New Releases and Holdovers

Among the new releases, Lionsgate and eOne's Arthur the King made its debut, garnering $7.5 million from 3,003 theaters. Despite falling slightly below initial projections, the film received an A CinemaScore from audiences, indicating potential for sustained success.

Directed by Kobi Libii, American Society of Magical Negroes, featuring a star-studded cast including Justice Smith and David Alan Grier, struggled to find its footing, earning approximately $1.25 million from 1,143 theaters. However, Focus Features remains optimistic about the film's prospects, buoyed by recent Oscar recognition for its other releases.

Specialty Films Making Waves

A24's Love Lies Bleeding secured the sixth spot at the box office with a $2.5 million haul after expanding to 1,362 theaters. Starring Kirsten Stewart, the crime thriller is gaining momentum among audiences.

Bleecker Street introduced Anthony Hopkins-starrer One Life, a holocaust-related drama, in select cinemas across the U.S., earning $1.7 million from 983 locations. The film has already surpassed $25 million in overseas earnings since its release in December 2023.

Rerelease of Oppenheimer

In response to Oppenheimer's Oscars success, Warner Bros. rereleased Christopher Nolan's film in over 1,300 domestic theaters. Despite being available for streaming, the film is expected to earn approximately $300K over the weekend, maintaining its status as the highest-grossing Best Picture winner in two decades.


Kung Fu Panda 4 and Dune: Part Two continue to dominate the box office, while new releases and specialty films offer audiences diverse cinematic experiences.
