The film is currently in its third weekend of early release.
Dune has already garnered massive box office numbers before it even hits American theaters. Two weeks ahead of its October 22 premiere in the United States, the Denis Villenueve-directed science-fiction epic has officially earned over $100 million at the international box office, bringing in another $13.7 million in its third weekend in theaters and officially bringing box office estimates to $100.3 million overall.
The highly anticipated adaptation, which is currently playing in over six thousand theaters in thirty-two markets, has yet to see a significant box office drop, and likely won’t before it hits American theaters, where it has been eagerly awaited by fans of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel. The film experienced a forty-nine percent drop after opening internationally on September 17 and earning $36.8 million its first weekend, and in like-for-like markets and at today’s rates, the film continues to track ahead of its competition, including eleven percent ahead of Tenet, fifty-eight percent ahead of Black Widow, sixty-five percent ahead of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and ninety-one percent ahead of Godzilla vs. Kong.
