Coming into the second weekend after release, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” kept roaring without presence of a strong competitor. The latest illustration of Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has potential to turn out to be a billion-dollar epic, had grossed $61 million from 4,534 movie theatres in the North America.
Nonetheless, the movie’s hold weakened more-than-anticipated as ticket sales were plunged as much as 67 per cent this week compared to its opening weekend, underscoring a sharp drop in comparison to recently released Marvel blockbusters like of “Eternals” and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings”.
Eternals’ holdings declined 61 per cent at its second weekend, while “Shang-Chia and the Legend of Ten Rings” dropped 52 per cent. Nonetheless, the tottering in ticket sales had been bolted out of the blue, surprising many industry experts contemplating that the spells of “Doctor Strange 2” had garnered as many as $550 million in less than a week and a half.
However, after ten days into the silver screen, the supreme sorcerer Benedict Cumberbatch-starred movie had grossed around $296 million in North America.
“Doctor Strange 2” keeps roaring
As “Doctor Strange 2” becomes the No 1 grossing movie again this weekend, the sequel added an $83.5 million from 49 international markets.
So far, the film had totalled a jawdropping $688.1 million across the globe in just a week and a half, offering more promise than the original “Doctor Strange” which had tallied a total of $909 million across the globe.
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” has had the eleventh-highest opening weekend ever in the history of box office with a whacking $187 million.
