Everyone predicted the film would be a success, but not this much. Poland on the list of countries with the best result

“Dune: Part Two” conquered cinemas around the world. The film has already earned a significant amount of $178.5 million. It was number one at the box office in 71 foreign markets. Poles also went crazy about Denis Villeneuve’s new work.

“Dune: Part Two” is one of the most anticipated films of 2024 in the world. This is visible not only in online discussions, but also in global cinema statistics. The film officially premiered on February 28 and has already earned as much as $178.5 million, $97 million from ticket sales outside the United States. This is much more than expected.

“Dune: Part Two” is a huge cinema hit. She earned twice as much as the previous one

According to Deadline, “Dune: Part Two” earned a whopping $81.5 million in its opening weekend. This is twice the result of the previous part of Denis Villeneuve’s work. “Dune: Episode One” earned $41 million in its opening weekend. The long-awaited continuation of the adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel debuted in 71 foreign markets, and in 67 of them it was number one in terms of ticket sales. On March 8, the picture will be released in China, and on March 15 in Japan, which will probably increase sales again.

The lion’s share of “Dune”‘s profits comes from the foreign market. In Europe, it was the best opening of Villeneuve and Chalamet (Paul Atreides) in history and a success comparable to the premieres of “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Oppenheimer”. Deadline notes that “Dune: Part Two” did better at the European box office than its predecessor, but also than the production of “The Batman” – a hit from 2022.

Poles went crazy about the new “Dune”. The film earned $2.7 million in our country

The new “Dune” earned the most in Great Britain – $11.8 million, followed by France – $9.6 million, and Germany – $9.1 million. Next in line were the Koreans, who earned the film $6.9 million, and Australia with $6 million.

According to Box Office’s Zawrot Głowy, Poland was in ninth place in the ranking and recorded revenue of USD 2.7 million. The presence of our country in the top ten markets where a hit film earned the most is not often the case.

The premiere of the new “Dune” was also accompanied by great reviews, which probably contributed to its financial success. “Oh, by all the ancestors of Leto Atreides, what a film this is! In the last ten, or maybe even twenty years, there has not been a series of this genre made on such a grand scale. The second part of “Avatar” can hide away, all the last ones can hide their tails.” “Star Wars”. In the second part of “Dune” it is clearly visible that Denis Villeneuve had complete freedom and much greater funds than in the first part,” wrote Magda Walma from Gazeta.pl after the press screening.

Currently, “Dune: Part Two” has over 2.5 thousand audience reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and a freshness score of 95 percent. Critics are almost equally enthusiastic about the film. The average rating of the reviewers gave the production a score of 93 percent on the portal’s scale.
