‘Dune: Part Two’ Crosses $500M Global Box Office; ‘Kung Fu Panda’ Franchise Tops $2B Worldwide


Coming out of the weekend, and with Sunday’s actuals and Monday’s numbers included, there are new global milestones to celebrate for the two major Hollywood titles currently in release.

As noted on Sunday, Warner Bros/Legendary Entertainment’s Dune: Part Two was nearing $500M worldwide. Ultimately reaching $498.1M through Sunday, the Denis Villeneuve sequel added $5.2M from the international box office on Monday and now has an offshore cume of $299M and a domestic haul of $207.5M to land $506.5M global through yesterday.

D2 had already surpassed the lifetime of Villeneuve’s 2021 installment on a global basis, and through Sunday is tracking 69% ahead of that film in like-for-like overseas markets at today’s exchange rates.

The Top Five overseas markets through Monday are China ($37M), UK ($33.8M), France ($28.4M), Germany ($25.5M) and Australia ($15.8M).

Meanwhile, Universal/DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 4 has helped push the franchise across the $2B milestone globally, kicking to $2.015B with Monday’s business included. This makes it the 7th highest-grossing animated franchise of all time and gives DWA three series to pass the benchmark including the Shrek films ($3.972B) and the Madagascar penguins ($2.257B).  

With Monday’s business counted, KFP4 is at $86.8M internationally (this includes China previews – the movie officially releases there on Friday, March 22). The global run through Monday is $196.7M.

On KFP4, which is rolling out on a staggered release plan, the Top Five markets through Monday are Mexico ($16.9M), China ($11.2M in previews), Spain ($5M), Germany ($4.2M) and Indonesia ($3.9M).

Markets still to come on KFP4 include Brazil, Italy and China this week, followed by France, Australia, the UK and Korea through late March and early April.
