BOX OFFICE REPORT
Written by KingCnote on November 1, 2021
The remake of Dune blew away the competition at the box office this past weekend, bringing in $15.5 million in its second week of release — a 62 percent drop from week one.
Numbers were down across the board, which insiders blame on people going out to celebrate Halloween in a big way — something they couldn’t do last year due to the pandemic.
Still, horror fans turned out to see Jamie Lee Curtis return to her avenging ways in the week’s second most popular flick, Halloween Kills, which notched $8.5 million in sales. Those numbers might also have been impacted by the fact that it’s also streaming on Peacock.
In third place, Daniel Craig‘s final James Bond movie No Time to Die earned $7.8 million, bringing its total North American take to $133 million.
My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission, the third installment of the popular manga/anime series, landed in the number four spot with a $6.5 million opening.
Rounding out the top five, Venom: Let There Be Carnage brought in $5.7 million in its fifth week in theaters. That brings the film’s total to $190 million in domestic ticket sales to date.
