Perhaps encouraged by the news that director Denis Villeneuve will certainly get a chance to make his successor, Dune has hung on for another week at the top of this weekend’s box office charts. It dropped significantly from last week, down 62 percent to a gross of $ 15 million (to a total of almost $ 70 million, which is pretty good), but it was still more than enough to hold any of this week’s new releases out. That will change next week, when Dune have to contend with Marvels Eternal.
Halloween kills dropped to second place this week by $ 8.5 million, bringing it to a total of $ 85 million. No time to die also fell, receiving $ 7 million and reaching a total of $ 133 million. It seems unlikely that any of these will reach $ 200 million, but they are all ready to have successors eventually. No one needs to worry about Paul Atreides, Michael Myers and James Bond. They should probably manage.
Next on the list is the anime tie-in My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, which debuted at $ 6.4 million in a relatively limited rollout (average per cinema, which was a talk last week, is higher than anything else in the top 10). After that is Venom: Let there be carnage, which is less than $ 10 million left to be the second film to crack $ 200 million after Shang-Chi: And the legend of the ten rings.
The other two newcomers this week, Last night in Soho and Antlers, somehow earned exactly the same amount ($ 4,160,000), with Soho comes in sixth and Antlers comes, however, in seventh place Soho had a lower average per. screen and should therefore have lost the tiebreaker (sorry, Edgar Wright). Customize the history books accordingly.
Wes Andersons completes the list The French broadcast, which only earned $ 2.7 million this week, but that’s an increase of more than 100 percent from last week. At this speed, The French broadcast will definitely be the most profitable movie ever … or maybe it will gradually fall off in a few weeks around $ 15 million or so. Who knows.
