Dune at 10,500 cinemas/28,274 screens. The pic is ranking as the No. 2 title in the market with a 34.3% share of the titles box office for the day.That figure bests the pre-pandemic take of Villeneuve’s previous sci-fi spectacle, Blade Runner 2049 

in 2017 which saw $3.5M from 7PM showtimes on its way to a $12.5M Friday and $32.8M opening, the director’s best domestic opening. Tracking estimates forDuneare in the $30M-$35M. Advance ticket sales indicate a number much higher, but we’ll need today and into Saturday to see how front-loaded business is as these day-and-date films have a tendency to bring the fans out first, before the general audience decides that they’re not going to the cinema.  headtopics.com

Dune‘s Thursday also beats the $4.1M made by Warner Bros/HBO Max’s The Suicide Squad which began previews at 7PM and turned in a $12.1M Friday, and $26.2M opening weekend; the second-best for an R-rated movie during the pandemic. Dune‘s Thursday also bests the previews of 

Halloween Kills which did $4.85M. That R-rated movie was available day-and-date on the subscriber paid tier of Peacock, but that didn’t seem to dilute the box office as it posted a $22.8M Friday, $49.4M opening weekend. It’s a different case with 

Dune and HBO Max since the service has a bigger penetration than Peacock.Related StoryThe movie, which has 73 minutes shot in Imax cameras, is overperforming in the large format exhibitor’s auditoriums, driving 30% of last night’s box office. Note, in Canada,

Dune is on a pure theatrical window since the country doesn’t have HBO Max yet.Four hundred two Imax screens delivered $1.5M yesterday. The figure marks a new wide-release indexing record for Imax on a Thursday night in North America, topping Christopher Nolan’s  headtopics.com

Dune was crazy good! It is breathtaking plus it has a message Good. We need good box office to get Part 2 and hopefully they could then adapt Books 2 and 3. I'm so happy ❤️ TanyaLapointe Saw it in Cozumel Mexico last night. Absolutely wonderful. Nearly. As tears in my eyes just to see the ending k owing I wanted more. My fav movie of the past 10 years

If the pandemic hadn’t happened and this was released last Christmas it would be a billion dollar grosser. Zendaya wasn’t in it very long - if there’s a Part II - hopefully Zendaya will have a bigger role Simultaneous releases are great

What Do You Need to Know About Dune Before You Watch Dune?It’s about dunes. Unbelievable that the second half of the film hasn’t been green-lighted yet. So at best we will wait 3-5 years for the rest of the tale. Joy.
