‘House of Gucci’ gets best opening weekend for a drama since 2019

November 29, 2021

We were quick to hail the box office resurgence after a year and a half of slump, with October being the highest-grossing month the industry has enjoyed since January 2020, with business tracking just 4% behind pre-pandemic levels.

While this is an encouraging statistic, over 75% of that total was entirely generated by just four films; Venom: Let There Be Carnage No Time to Die Halloween kills and Dune . Every title to win big this year has been a franchise blockbuster of some description, with straightforward dramas and features geared toward older demographics being left in the dust.
