'Dune' led the way last week, posting a global gate of $220 million. Warners and Legendary spent $165 in production and marketing so they needed that big first week and it paid off nicely.
|Note: In Theaters and HBO|
The film premiered day-and-date with HBO Max streaming, but that didn't stop moviegoers from wanting the 'big-screen version.
This fall/winter season will witness major returns at cinemas as moviegoers will flock to view the silver screen versions of movies. We should note that we do very much like the AMC Theaters TV ad with Nicole Kidman and the tagline "We make movies better". It is so true and moviegoers know it.
