Hello! Dr. Strange has conquered the top spot for the second straight week. Here’s what The Hollywood Reporter has to say…
Directed by Sam Raimi, the sequel grossed $61 million from 4,534 theaters for a 10-day domestic total of $291.9 million. The film dipped 67 percent from its $187 million opening; Disney had hoped for a decline more in the 65 percent range. (Spider-Man: No Way Home also fell 67 percent after its mega-$260 million debut.)
Doctor Strange’s weekend began with a Friday tally of $16.7 million.
Overseas, the superhero pic earned another $83.5 million for a foreign total of $396.2 million and global haul of $688.1 million.
Doctor Strange 2 easily stayed atop the chart as new offering Firestarter — based on the Stephen King tale — flamed out. The Universal and Blumhouse pic opened to $3.8 million from 3,412 cinemas.
Firestarter debuted day and date on Universal Pictures’ sister streaming service Peacock, making box office comparisons difficult. Poor reviews and a C- CinemaScore certainly didn’t help.
