Box Office: ‘Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness’ Conjures Up $185M Worldwide

  1. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (review)- $185M

Naturally, there was no competition for Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but a $185M debut is still mighty impressive. Good for the 11th-best debut weekend of all-time, it’s a full $100M better than the opening weekend for Doctor Strange in 2016. Who knows what kind of legs this will have with Top Gun: Maverick breathing down its neck, and a tone that is decidely too violent for many families, but with an additional $265M overseas, and a $450M worldwide total for the Sam Raimi-directed sequel, Disney/Marvel must be happy with this start. They announce a third one yet?

2. The Bad Guys– $9.7M/$57.5M

3. Sonice the Hedgehog 2– $6.2/$169.9M

4. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore– $3.9M/$86M

5. Everything Everywhere All At Once– $3.3M/$41.5M

6. The Northman– $2.7M/$28M

7. The Lost City– $2.5M/$94.3M

8. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent– $1.5M/$16.3M

9. Memory- $1.2M/$5.4M

10. Father Stu– $800K/$19.2M
