Box Office / May 13-15, 2022


Hello! Dr. Strange has conquered the top spot for the second straight week. Here’s what The Hollywood Reporter has to say…

Marvel Studios and Disney’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, finished its second weekend with nearly $700 million in global ticket sales.

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.
