Dune 2 has already emerged as a success story at the China box office. It had the potential to add more collections, but the storm of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire has impacted the run of Timothee Chalamet-led magnum opus. Still, before it wraps up the theatrical run, there’s a chance that it could cross the lifetime of Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 7. Keep reading to know more!

In the post-pandemic era, the consumption pattern of the audience has changed, and the same has been witnessed even in China, which used to be a huge market for Hollywood releases. After COVID-19, only selective films from Hollywood have worked in the country, and the Timothee Chalamet starrer is one such mega release that has enjoyed appreciation there.

Dune 2 slows down at the China box office

As per the latest update, Dune 2 witnessed a sharp fall and earned $254K on the fourth Friday, taking the total collection to $46 million at the China box office. When compared to last Friday, it’s a huge drop of 73%. This is totally understood as Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire has marked its grand arrival and is performing much beyond everyone’s expectations.

The latest MonsterVerse film has snatched away a big chunk of screens from Dune 2, and there’s also competition in the premium screens. As of now, the Dune sequel is playing on 15,000 screens.

Might cross Mission Impossible 7

While the pace has definitely gone down, Dune 2 is expected to cross the lifetime collection of Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 7 before wrapping up the theatrical run. For those who don’t know, the action thriller had amassed $47.7 million at the China box office. The film even had a chance of hitting the $50 million milestone, but unfortunately, it’ll be there in Chinese theatres only for one more week, and as of now, there’s no extension given to the biggie’s theatrical run.
