Denis Villenueve recently compared the idea of watching Dune at home to put a speedboat in the tub, but the international public does not even have that option.

Not only has the acclaimed blockbuster surpassed expectations by grossing nearly $ 37 million in just 24 markets, it is well ahead of Principle, Black Widow, Godzilla vs. Kong and Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings. In reality, Dune even set pandemic-era IMAX opening weekend records in Russia, France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Ukraine, Hong Kong and Singapore , depending on the deadline.

We keep our fingers crossed for that Dune, Shang-Chi and Venom: let there be carnage marks the start of a real resurgence this time around.
