Holdover title, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” comfortably defeated new release “Dune” at the South Korean box office over the latest weekend.

Venom 2” had opened a week earlier with a $6.71 million debut that counts as strong in the current malaise. It dropped 56% from first to second weekends, but still claimed a 46% share of the nationwide theatrical market with a $2.98 million weekend.

As “Venom” retreated, so too did the overall Korean box office. It dropped from $8.17 million the previous weekend to $6.51 million over the latest weekend.

Oscars 2022: Best Visual Effects Predictions

Oscars 2022: Best Visual Effects Predictions
Denis Villeneuve’s sweeping “Dune” leads the way in the VFX race as a cross between “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Star Wars.” But there is plenty of competition from other superhero, action-adventure, and fantasy films. Marvel is more diverse and ambitious in Phase 4 with “Eternals” and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” while Sony counters with its own darker, edgier Marvel property, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage.” There’s also the return of Neo (Keanu Reeves) in “The Matrix: Resurrections,” and the video game heroics of Ryan Reynolds’ Guy in “Free Guy,” among other contenders.

Dneg created spectacular VFX for the otherworldly “Dune” (overseen by two-time Oscar-winning production VFX supervisor Paul Lambert and Oscar-winning SFX supervisor Gerd Nefzer). Shot in Budapest, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, and Norway, the work is both epic and intimate, from the wind blown sand, to the raging sandstorms (done practically at the director

Marvel Studios Pushes Back Entire 2022 Slate, Indiana Jones 5 Delayed Almost A Full Year

Marvel Studios Pushes Back Entire 2022 Slate, Indiana Jones 5 Delayed Almost A Full Year
It would seem that the coronavirus pandemic isn't done messing with the upcoming slate of blockbusters from Marvel Studios. Last April, "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness" and "Thor: Love & Thunder" were pushed back due to the delay of the release of this year's "Black Widow," "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" and "Eternals." Even though all those movies made it to the finish line, the rest of the upcoming Marvel Studios movies have been significantly pushed back yet again, shifting the entire 2022 slate of movies, and even one of their 2023 offerings.

Meanwhile, The Walt Disney Company...

Disney Delays ‘Doctor Strange 2,’ ‘Thor 4,’ ‘Black Panther’ Sequel and ‘Indiana Jones 5’

Disney Delays ‘Doctor Strange 2,’ ‘Thor 4,’ ‘Black Panther’ Sequel and ‘Indiana Jones 5’
Marvel fans, prepare to wait a little bit longer to see Doctor Strange, Thor and Black Panther return to theaters.

Disney has delayed release plans for several upcoming films, including “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” from March 25 to May 6, “Thor: Love and Thunder” from May 6 to July 8 and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” from July 8 to Nov. 11. With the “Black Panther” sequel jumping to November, “The Marvels” has been postponed to early 2023 and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” was bumped from Feb. 17 to July 28, 2023.

Along with the deluge of Marvel delays, Disney has moved the fifth “Indiana Jones” installment back nearly a year. The still-untitled film, starring Harrison Ford as the fedora-wearing, swashbuckling archaeologist, will open on June 30, 2023 instead of July 29, 2022.

The major release date shuffle comes after Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” cemented its place as a pandemic-era box office hit and ahead of “Eternals,

‘Halloween’ Killed but ‘The Last Duel’ Is Dead as ‘No Time to Die’ Lives On

‘Halloween’ Killed but ‘The Last Duel’ Is Dead as ‘No Time to Die’ Lives On
It’s a strange time for theaters. With a $50 million opening weekend for “Halloween Kills,” that means the Universal title won’t have Premium Video on Demand play for 31 days… but how meaningful is that when the Blumhouse/Miramax sequel is already available free to Peacock subscribers?

Even with home access, it still grossed only $5 million less than “No Time to Die” last weekend. The production cost for the horror franchise was less than one-tenth of Daniel Craig’s James Bond finale.

“Kills” by far has the largest opening total for any film to premiere on a streamer with no PVOD charge (“Black Widow” cost $29.99). It bested “A Quiet Place Part 2” (Paramount) despite that film’s Memorial Day weekend placement, no competition of note, and of course theater exclusivity.

Since it lacked premium-screen surcharge admissions, “Kills” probably sold as many tickets as Bond did last weekend. The Peacock access also

International Box Office: ‘Venom 2’ Rips Into $62.3 Million, ‘No Time to Die’ Nears $450 Million Globally
Sony’s “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” loomed large at the international box office this weekend, sinking its prodigious chompers into $62.3 million. That pushes the superhero adventure’s global haul to a muscular $283.7 million. “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” expanded to 44 international markets over the weekend, including such major markets as the U.K., Italy, Spain, South Korea and India. The coming days will see the “Venom” sequel bow in France and Germany, with Australia on tap for November and an opening in Japan planned for December.

MGM and Eon’s “No Time to Die,” which Universal is releasing internationally, continued to perform well overseas. The 007 sequel marks Daniel Craig’s last outing as James Bond, and fans appear to be turning out to bid farewell. The film pulled in $54 million overseas, bringing its global gross to $447.5 million. The film still hasn’t opened in China, where it is set to debut on Oct.

Marvel's Secret Invasion Has Begun Production
Marvel Studios' next Disney+ series is underway. "Secret Invasion," which centers on shapeshifting alien creatures called Skrulls infiltrating Earth, has begun production – at least, according to one of its biggest stars. Samuel L. Jackson, who will reprise his role as former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury, shared a photo from the set today which indicates that cameras are actually rolling on the show, which was officially announced by producer Kevin Feige in December of last year.

Marvel's latest super friend is certainly switching it up for "Women Is Losers," the newest film from actress, producer, and director Lissette Feliciano. This equally depressing and uplifting movie has Simu Liu (who you definitely know from "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" and "Kim's Convenience") acting alongside Lorenza Izzo ("Once Upon A Time In Hollywood"), Bryan Craig ("General Hospital") and Chrissie Fit ("Pitch Perfect 2") in a film that's based off of Feliciano and her mother's lived experiences as Latina women in America.

James Bond Continues Reign Over U.K. Box Office as Hollywood Competition Looms

Shaken or stirred? ‘No Time to Die’ opens with $56 million for Daniel Craig’s final Bond

Shaken or stirred? ‘No Time to Die’ opens with $56 million for Daniel Craig’s final Bond
Was this past weekend’s long-awaited debut of “No Time to Die” in North American theaters an unqualified success or a big disappointment? Perhaps neither, or maybe both. Following a successful international bow last week, “No Time to Die” hit theaters in the U.S. and Canada this weekend and grossed an estimated $56 million in its debut frame, a number that came in on the low-end of studio expectations and roughly $14 million less than the launch of “Spectre” in 2015. Among the five James Bond films with Daniel Craig as 007, “No Time to Die” had the fourth-ranked opening, after “Skyfall,” “Spectre,” and “Quantum of Solace.”

But while the “No Time to Die” opening wound up significantly lower than some perhaps anticipated — there was some online buzz that “No Time to Die” could even crack $100 million in just three days — the $56 million launch was the result of some mitigating factors. For instance,

‘No Time to Die’ Box Office: 5 Takeaways From Daniel Craig’s Final Bond Film

‘No Time to Die’ Box Office: 5 Takeaways From Daniel Craig’s Final Bond Film
Though Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond won’t be one for box office record books, “No Time to Die” easily took the top spot in North America.

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and co-starring Rami Malek, Lea Seydoux, Lashana Lynch and Ralph Fiennes, the latest 007 adventure debuted to $56 million over the weekend — a result that would have been more dazzling had the film not cost $250 million to produce and at least another $100 million to promote.

Despite opening slightly behind expectations, “No Time to Die” marks a positive step forward for the movie theater business, which has struggled to rebound from the pandemic. With Bond’s assist, the overall box office collected $108 million between Friday and Sunday, according to Comscore, marking only the fourth weekend in the past 18 months to cross the $100 million benchmark.

Box office experts predict that momentum from “No Time to Die” and Sony

Box office at lowest point since mid 2020

Box office at lowest point since mid 2020
With school holidays ending and only a smattering of new releases in the market, the national box office plunged last weekend to the lowest point since mid-August 2020.

According to Numero, total receipts for all films tallied just $2 million. Some $1.8 million of that came from the top 20 titles, a result that is down almost 48 per cent on the previous weekend.

The last time the figures were so low, cinemas were only just emerging from the first wave of lockdowns, ahead of the release of Tenet.

This weekend will hopefully see a pick-me-up, with all cinemas in Nsw finally able to open at 75 per cent capacity. This includes the Sydney market, which has been closed since late June. Cinemas in Melbourne, parts of regional Victoria and the Act remain closed.

Korea Box Office: Lack of New Releases Depressing Theatrical Recovery

Korea Box Office: Lack of New Releases Depressing Theatrical Recovery
No Time To Die” kept its place at the top of the South Korean box office for the second weekend. But, with no significant new releases competing against the James Bond title, it was a hollow victory.

The Universal-released “No Time To Die” earned $1.83 million in Korea on its second weekend of release, according to data from Kobis, the Korean Film Council-backed tracking service. That gave it an $8.01 million total after 12 days in theaters.

The score represents a 44% drop compared with the film’s opening weekend. And it accounted for a hefty 49% of nationwide total box office.

But the lack of new releases and the predictable erosion of Bond’s performance meant that cinemagoing in Korea resumed its recent weakness. Theaters in Korea enjoyed gross revenues of just $3.73 million between Friday and Sunday, down from $5.22 million on the prior weekend which was goosed by the arrival of “No Time to Die.
