DUNE Is Now Closing In On $80 Million At The International Box Office

Denis Villeneuve's Dune has been playing in several overseas locations for almost two weeks, and the sci-fi adaptation is now closing in on $80 million. Will it perform as well when it hits US theaters?

Dune is not set to open in the US and several other major territories until October 22, but Denis Villeneuve's highly-anticipated sci-fi adaptation began its international rollout over a week ago, and the movie has been performing very well since.

The sci-fi epic added another $26.3M this weekend from 32 markets to bring its offshore total to $76.5M, experiencing an impressive 32% drop since its release. Dune is expected to hold its position for a while, but it will face stiff competition from Venom: Let There Be Carnage and No Time To Die in the coming weeks.

This is obviously a terrific start, but there's still a lot of uncertainly surrounding the movie's domestic bow, especially as it'll be available to stream on HBO Max the same day it hits theaters. Still, at this rate, the chances of Villeneuve getting the chance to make Part II seem pretty strong.

In related BO news, Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has held on to the No. 1 spot for the fourth week in a row, and is now officially the highest domestic grosser of the year. It's global total now sits at $363.4M.

Do you guys plan on seeing Dune on the big screen? Let us know in the comments.
