Paramount's newest potential franchise-starter got off to a good start at the box office, both here in North America and across the globe. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves didn't set any box office records with its opening this weekend, but it did provide its studio with a solid global start, doing plenty to earn its budget back and potentially spawn a sequel.

Dungeons & Dragons took home the top spot at the box office this weekend, beating John Wick: Chapter 4 and earning $38.5 million domestically. Internationally, the fantasy comedy really over-performed expectations. Dungeons & Dragons was originally projected to earn around $25 million total from international markets, but the actual haul at the end of the weekend is $33 million. All-in-all, that gives the film a $71.5 million global opening.

The film opened in more than 60 markets this weekend and was number one in several of those. The UK was a big market for D&D, as it earned more than $4 million in the country.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is directed by Game Night duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, from a script the co-wrote alongside Michael Gilio.
