Legendary Sci-Fi Epic and Warner Bros. Dune excavated $ 5.1 million as of 6 p.m. in 3,200 theaters. Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel was made available on the HBO Max streaming service at 3 p.m. PST / 6PM EST.

In China, Legendary East announces $ 6.5 million opening day for Dune in 10,500 cinemas / 28,274 screens. The photo ranks as the # 2 title in the market with a 34.3% box office share of the titles for the day.

This figure surpasses the pre-pandemic take from Villeneuve’s previous sci-fi show, Blade Runner 2049 in 2017, which saw $ 3.5 million as of 7 p.m. on its way to a $ 12.5 million open on Friday and $ 32.8 million, the director’s best nationwide open. Track estimates for Dune are between $ 30 million and $ 35 million. Advance ticket sales show a much higher number, but we’ll need today and Saturday to see how busy the deal is up front as these movies of the day and date tend to attract fans first, before the general public decides they don’t go to the movies. DuneThursday also beats the $ 4.1 million made by Warner Bros / HBO Max’s The suicide squad which started previews at 7 p.m. and generated a Friday of $ 12.1 million and an opening weekend of $ 26.2 million; second best for an R-rated movie during the pandemic. Dune‘s Thursday also beats previews of Halloween tue which made $ 4.85 million. This R-rated film was available day and date on Peacock’s paid-per-subscriber level, but that didn’t seem to dilute the box office as it posted a $ 22.8 million Friday and a weekend of. opening of $ 49.4 million. It is a different case with Dune and HBO Max since the service has a greater penetration than Peacock.

The film, which has 73 minutes of filming with Imax cameras, is outperforming in auditoriums at large-format exhibitors, accounting for 30% of last night’s box office. Attention, in Canada, Dune is on a purely theatrical window since the country does not yet have HBO Max.

Four hundred and two Imax displays shipped $ 1.5 million yesterday. The figure marks a new mass-market indexing record for Imax on a Thursday night in North America, surpassing that of Christopher Nolan Dunkerque ($ 1.59M / 28.9% of a total of $ 5.5M in July 2017).

Abroad, 17 Imax screens in South Korea delivered 21% of opening revenue on Wednesday, compared to 5-6% for Shang-Chi and No time to die.

In the UK, 50 Imax screens delivered 21% of the photo’s opening day on Thursday, up from 8% on No time to die and 9% for Shang-Chi.

Last weekend, 37 IMAX screens in Japan brought in 37% of the opening weekend total, compared to 16% for Bond 25.

The first word in China today, Friday, is that Imax displays account for 21% of the opening day total for Dune.
