DUNE Surpasses $300M at the Worldwide Box Office

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” from visionary filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, crosses the $300 million mark at the global box office today, with Monday’s numbers in North America topping more than $71 million and more than $228 million from overseas, and counting.

A succession of impressive #1 openings, coupled with strong word of mouth, had anticipation for the film increasing exponentially as the film rolled out around the globe. The epic action adventure, based on the seminal Frank Herbert novel, kicked off the fall season to great fanfare at the Venice and Toronto film festivals before beginning its theatrical play mid-September.

Jeff Goldstein, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Domestic Distribution, said, “We are so thrilled that this one-of-a-kind cinematic experience has movie lovers, as well as lifelong fans of the book like Denis Villeneuve himself, eager to see ‘Dune’ as he envisioned it: on the biggest possible screen. These terrific numbers, coupled with A- CinemaScore and a Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, show the film delivers and that audiences are going back for multiple viewings.”

Andrew Cripps, President, Warner Bros. Pictures International Distribution, stated, “From our first international opening in September, we could see that ‘Dune’ was both a critical and crowd pleaser. The numbers have continued to bear that out as each market has opened and we look forward to a healthy theatrical play, with Australia and New Zealand yet to come as we head into the holidays.”

Dune opens in Metro Manila theaters today.
