The Warner Bros. film “Dune,” another attempt to bring the popular sci-fi novel to film and TV audiences, took the No. 1 spot in U.S. and Canadian theaters this weekend.

“Dune” generated $41 million in ticket sales in its North American theatrical debut, Comscore Inc. said Monday. That was the studio’s largest opening weekend this year, and exceeded its projection of $30 million. Boxoffice Pro, a website that tracks the industry, had forecast $40 million. The film was released simultaneously on WarnerMedia’s HBO Max service.
