Will "Dune: Part Two" be #1 at the box office during its second weekend? (March 8-10, dueling "Kung Fu Panda 4")
resolved Mar 11

"Dune: Part Two" releases on March 1st. Its second weekend is March 8th-10th, where it will battle the opening weekend for "Kung Fu Panda 4".

This market resolves YES if BoxOfficeMojo lists "Dune: Part Two" as the film with the highest domestic gross for the weekend of March 8th-10th.

  • I will use the "weekend" tab in BoxOfficeMojo to resolve this market.

  • For example "Dune" (2021) released on October 22nd, and in its second weekend at the box office (October 29-31), BoxOfficeMojo shows it at #1 (grossing $15,413,486), comfortably ahead of Halloween Kills at #2 (grossing $8,743,355). Link: https://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend/2021W44/?ref_=bo_rl_table_2. I will use this same source, but for the weekend of March 8-10.

Other details:

  • I will use the weekend gross posted by BoxOfficeMojo, however it is defined.

  • For context, AFAIK typically the "weekend" is Friday/Saturday/Sunday, including Thursday previews for new releases, across all of North America. But that's just my informal understanding, not a rule for resolution—I will use their definition.

Looks like this could be close. If you want to bet on the performance of "Dune: Part Two" directly, I made two markets for its second weekend gross:
