“Dune 2” Approaches $700 Million at the Worldwide Box Office

The global box office revenue for “Dune: Part Two,” which is around $700 million, is still flowing in.

After eight weeks of release, director Denis Villeneuve’s epic science fiction film has brought in $276 million in North America and $419 million abroad. This brings its total earnings to $695.8 million worldwide. In the post-COVID era, this threshold is impressive; only five films in 2023, eight in 2022, and five in 2021 were able to surpass the $700 million milestone.

“Dune 2” is currently the highest-grossing film of 2024 both domestically and internationally. Germany ($39.7 million), Australia ($22.5 million), China ($48.5 million), France ($42.6 million), and the United Kingdom ($48.8 million) are the largest markets outside of the United States and Canada.

“Dune: Part Two” has made significantly more money than its 2021 predecessor, “Dune,” which brought in $433 million and debuted concurrently on HBO Max. A-list cast headlined by Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya, positive word-of-mouth, and interest in Imax and other premium formats are just a few of the reasons for the sequel’s remarkable longevity. It also helps that the sequel is limited to big-screen viewing, unlike the first. “Dune: Part Two” was co-financed and co-produced by Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment. The film’s production cost $190 million, and it added another $100 million or more for worldwide promotion.

The plot follows the mythological journey of Chalamet’s Paul Atreides, a messianic figure who flees to the desert for safety after powerful royals betray his family. It is based on the second half of Frank Herbert’s groundbreaking 1965 novel. The remaining cast members include Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Christopher Walken, Austin Butler, and Florence Pugh.
