Dune: Part Two continues to perform admirably at the box office, as its latest earnings have taken the film past the $600M global mark. Coming out of the previous weekend, the film sat at $574M worldwide and this past Easter Weekend has seen the film rise to $626M globally.

That's even more impressive, given the fact that Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire destroyed even the most optimistic estimates.

Per The Hollywood ReporterDune: Part Two's break-even target for box office revenue was $500M.

Villeneuve has already said that he will decide whether to make a third film based on how well the sequel does at the box office.

However, now that the film's earnings are no longer an issue, more lately, Villeneuve has coyly stated that he won't make a third film if it doesn't surpass the second.

However, it would be extremely surprising if Villeneuve decided not to make a third movie and it's more probable that he is simply being 'theatrical' in an effort to drum up early interest for Dune: Messiah.

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.
