Dune 2 Shatters Domestic Box Office.

The highly anticipated Dune: Part Two has taken the box office by storm, solidifying Timothée Chalamet’s status as a box office powerhouse. In its fourth weekend at the domestic box office, the epic sci-fi sequel has shattered a major record for the rising star.

An Interstellar Achievement

Fans of Chalamet have been eagerly anticipating the release of Dune: Part Two, and their enthusiasm has translated into remarkable box-office success. As the movie adapts the second half of Frank Herbert’s iconic sci-fi novel, Chalamet reprises his role as the messianic Paul Atreides, leading an all-star cast that includes Zendaya, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, and Rebecca Ferguson.

The movie’s opening weekend was nothing short of a triumph, raking in an impressive $82 million domestically. This strong start propelled Dune: Part Two past the $500 million mark worldwide, cementing its position as the highest-grossing movie of 2024 so far.

Domestic Triumph for Timothée Chalamet

According to the latest reports from Deadline, Dune: Part Two added another $4.5 million to its domestic haul on Friday, bringing its cumulative domestic total to a staggering $220 million. This remarkable achievement means that the movie has surpassed the domestic gross of Chalamet’s 2023 hit Wonka, which earned $218 million.

Consequently, Dune: Part Two has become Chalamet’s highest-grossing domestic movie ever, dethroning Wonka, which had previously beaten the actor’s 2014 blockbuster Interstellar, with a domestic gross of $188 million.

Worldwide Box Office Sensation?

While Dune: Part Two’s domestic success is undeniable, the question remains: Can it become Timothée Chalamet’s highest-grossing movie worldwide? Though the star has now appeared in five movies that grossed over $100 million domestically, his rise to fame was initially propelled by critically acclaimed smaller films like Call Me By Your Name and Lady Bird, making his current blockbuster prospects all the more impressive.

However, for Dune: Part Two to claim the top spot worldwide, it still has a considerable distance to go. Here’s a look at Chalamet’s current top 5 highest-grossing movies:

TitleDomestic Box OfficeWorldwide Box Office
Interstellar (2014)$188 million$681 million
Wonka (2023)$218.2 million$629.7 million
Dune: Part Two (2024)$220.3 million$520 million+
Dune (2021)$108.9 million$433.9 million
Little Women (2019)$108.1 million$218.8 million
Dune 2

While the international grosses for Dune: Part Two’s fourth weekend have not been fully calculated, it is unlikely that the movie will have outgrossed Wonka worldwide by the end of Sunday. However, with its strong domestic performance, surpassing Interstellar’s worldwide gross of $681 million seems like an achievable goal by the end of its theatrical run.

Franchise-Defining Role

Being part of the Dune: Part Two cast may well be paving the way for Chalamet to shatter even more records on a broader scale. And if he returns for the probable third installment, adapting the 1969 novel Dune Messiah, his blockbuster prospects could soar even higher.

As Chalamet continues to captivate audiences with his magnetic performances, Dune: Part Two’s success serves as a testament to his rising star power and his ability to transcend genres. With his talent and the backing of a beloved sci-fi franchise, the future looks bright for this young actor, and his box office records may just be the beginning of a legendary career.
