A few days ago Dune was released in theaters in selected countries. While the new edition can already be seen in Germany, for example, fans in the USA will have to wait a few more weeks. Dune started especially in parts of Europe and Asia and was able to get off to a successful start on the first weekend. The film achieved around 37 million US dollars at the box office. This means that the remake is at the level that experts expected.

In addition, Dune broke some records in the pandemic era. These include countries such as Germany, Russia, France, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Ukraine in Europe and Hong Kong and Singapore in Asia. No film has been able to earn more money to start at the box office since Corona. In the coming days and weeks, Dune will then start in other regions. It continues on September 22nd in the Middle East, on October 15th in Japan and other Asian countries and on October 21st in the USA. The new edition can also be seen here on HBO Max.

Also at the top of the box office is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The Marvel Studios film has grossed $ 320.5 million worldwide since its three-week launch. This means that Shang-Chi is now number 4 among the most successful films released worldwide in 2021. Because of its enormous success in the Asian market, Fast & Furious 9 is in first place with 716 million US dollars. It is followed by Godzilla vs. Kong with 467 million US dollars and Black Widow with 377 million US dollars.
