“Dune Two” Box Office Beast: Most New York, Chicago Preview Shows Sold Out Tonight, Even 3:15AM!


Tomorrow morning we’ll get the box office numbers from tonight’s preview shows of “Dune Two.”

But I can tell you now it’s sold out everywhere. In New York, at AMC Lincoln Square, even the 3:15am show is sold out. It’s a three hour experience, so that means the audience will leave around 6am!

It’s the same all over New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, which I checked on Fandango. The Dolby and IMAX versions are really sold, there are some seats in regular theaters. “Dune Two” is going to be a box office beast.

“Dune Two” is directed by Denis Villeneuve, and stars Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Stellan Skarsgaard, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Austin Butler, and a cast of thousands.

The surge for tickets is largely due to the reviews — 95% on Rotten Tomatoes — and a strong cast. The budget is over $200 million, but with these ticket sales, Warner Bros. will be raking it in!
