Box Office: ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ Rolls A $71M Worldwide Debut

  1. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (review)- $38.5M

Paramount rolled a critical hit with their star-studded Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which opened with $38.5M domestic and $71M overall worldwide. That’s not too shabby for the adaptation of the beloved tabletop RPG, played by geeks and nerds everywhere for generations. However, it’s up in the air whether this is enough to demand a sequel, especially with the $150M budget. Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Hugh Grant, and more lead the all-star cast, and they were a big part of the draw, along with a clear sense that this would lean more into comedy. The film scored in the 90s for both critics and audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, and an A- Cinemescore.

2. John Wick: Chapter 4– $28.2M/$122.8M

Keanu Reeves continues to kill it as John Wick: Chapter 4 scored another $28M for $122M domestically after just two weeks. Worldwide, the film has $244.8M.
