Here's how the release of Dune: Part Two on VOD affected the film's domestic box office gross. 

The sequel hit digital retailers on April 16, only 45 days after its theatrical release. However, despite the film being available to view from the comfort of home, it's still playing in over 2,000 theaters in North America.

That led to another $2.9M being added to Dune: Part Two's domestic gross, as the film also brought in another $4.2M from international territories for a $7.1M global weekend. The film currently sits at $695.8M worldwide.

In comparison, the film grossed $11.52M globally, the previous weekend, meaning that the sequel only had a 38% dropoff, worldwide.

Dune: Part Two will be released on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 14.

According to The Hollywood ReporterDune: Part Two's break-even figures for box office revenue was $500M, a mark that it passed several weeks ago.

As such, it was just officially announced that Dune: Messiah is officially in development.

Dune hit theaters in 2021 and Part Two arrived in 2024, so if WB Discovery and Denis Villeneuve maintain the same pace, Dune: Messiah should arrive in 2027.

Dune: Part Two features an exceptional cast with Timothée Chalamet starring as Paul Atreides, Zendaya as Chani, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, and Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen.

Also appearing in supporting roles are Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, Dave Bautista as Glossu Rabban Harkonnen, Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, Stephen McKinley Henderson as Thufir Hawat, Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot Fenring, Souheila Yacoub as Shishakli, Stellan Skarsgård as Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, Charlotte Rampling as Gaius Helen Mohiam and Javier Bardem as Stilgar.

Dune: Part Two was released on March 01, 2024. The film was originally set for release on November 3, 2023 but was pushed back due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA Hollywood strike.
