Some have speculated that the simulcast model has negatively affected the theatrical box office of Warner Bros. projects. Indeed, Denis Villeneuve himself has repeatedly expressed his displeasure at the prospect of audiences airing his film on opening weekend. . While it’s true that its expected weekend gross of $ 30- $ 35 million is nowhere near what it needs to earn to recoup its $ 165 million budget, the film’s pre-sale figures are solid and it looks like the model release may not have hampered the success of the film.
Dune is one of the last films of the year to premiere simultaneously on HBO Max. After King Richard and The Matrix Resurrections, there are currently no plans for the release format to continue. However, given the continuing state of the pandemic that is wreaking havoc on many productions and scheduled releases (including shipping Top gun 2 running away to a 2022 release and pushing back the dates of an entire chain of MCU movies), yeah Dune can match the numbers you require on a theatrical stage while racking up broadcast numbers, it could encourage the studio to continue using that strategy for future titles.
