    From a personal point of view the fact that Dune pulled in less than half of the taking than the Venom sequel is saddening, but globally it's sounding like Villeneuve's sci-fi opera is doing well enough to convince Warner's that Part 2 is viable. Obviously the fact that it debuted on HBO screens as well as in cinemas will affect the numbers, but either way let's hope that the green light for the conclusion is announced soon!

    In game, two names dominated the week. Not only did @Anubis78 hold on to top spot on the leaderboard, he also saw off a creditable threat from @Bluemilk and put some distance in between himself and his immediate challengers too!

    1 @Anubis78 155 +40
    2 @Bluemilk 125 +30
    3 @Lazarus Dei 110 +0

    Dune $41.0m

    Ron's Gone Wrong $7.3m

    I low balled "Dune" but not enough. I knew it was playing on one of the streaming platforms and it would be lower just wasn't sure how much. I actually originally had 42 mil but changed to 50.

    But I think there will be some films coming soon that will be smashing it at the B.O. though. For some reason right now they just aren't.

    Last Night in Soho: $16.7 million
    Antlers: $6.7 million
    Dune Part 1 (w2): $32.7 million

    ('Cause .7 is a magic number, maybe?)

    On a side note, Dune Part 1 appearently had both the best 2021 opening for Warner Bros. and the best ever opening for a Denis Villeneuve film. Congrats to everyone involved! :D

    A relatively quiet Halloween weekend at the box office - presumably as everyone was out toilet-papering their neighbours trees and going door-to-door begging for sugar :D

    In game @Anubis78's drive to put distance on the rest of the field continues with another decent set of points and yet again the Kylux duo find themselves back on par, but losing some ground to a surging @Meister Yoda...

    STANDINGS
    1 @Anubis78 175 +20
    2 @Bluemilk 135 +10
    = @Lazarus Dei 135 +25
    4 @Meister Yoda 100 +20
    5 @NinjaRen 90 +10
    = @RockyRoadHux 90 +5
    7 @Angelman 45 +0
    8 @Addi Ras 30 +0
