Little bit of news for all y'all..

 

Oh, and the opening US weekend racked up a healthy $41m domestic. Way behind Shang-Chi, Venom II, F9, or Black Widow, but in the same ballpark as Quiet Place Part II and Jungle Cruise. Also another $7.5m from its UK opening weekend.

 

On those numbers would expect a full run - assuming it's got the legs - to go $130m to $160m domestic, and $400m and change worldwide.

Using my maths from earlier: $165m budget x 3 = $495m notional breakeven.

So: absolutely not a flop, not quite up to the watermark. But given the streaming revenues and the rerelease potential alongside Part 2...

...and that it's doing these numbers in a pandemic...

"Boffo", as they say.

No idea why they say that but they do.

BTW, for those who've been living on an isolated rock hiding from sandworms and are wondering what Dune is about...

Somehow I missed the fact that this movie was a part 1 of (2?) until midway through the movie when I realized there's no way they're finishing this in the time that's left.   After the movie I went to look up when Part 2 was coming, and ... OMG it's not even greenlit!  That means it's 3 years out at least...and maybe not coming!  Now I'm angry because this was really well done.

Well that's good news.

 

This will be a bit like Lord of the Rings I suppose.  

 

A decent adaption of the book that gets the visuals and main themes down very well, but much of the in depth stuff from the books just gets a quick nod.
