It’s a respectable start given the ongoing pandemic and the Warner Bros. film’s unconventional theatrical debut.

Warner Bros.’ big-budget sci-fi epic Dune spiced up the box office this weekend with a $40.1 million domestic debut. Topping predictions that had the star-studded spectacle opening in the $30-$35 million range, director Denis Villenueve’s eye-candy adventure easily snagged the top spot in North America (where it is also streaming on HBO Max) and continued to clean up overseas, where it has been playing for weeks.

As of this writing, the film holds a critical review score of just eight percent on Rotten Tomatoes, while moviegoers gave the Brian A. Miller-directed movie a 17-percent mark.
