Box Office Report: ‘Doctor Strange’ Heals the Box Office and Restores Faith in Moviegoing

Yes, of course, I was going to make a medical pun in my title, it was too easy to do. Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now the second highest-grossing film of the COVID-19 pandemic era and the fifth-biggest opening weekend for an MCU film. It’s also now the tenth highest-grossing film of all time, giving a glimmer of hope to theatres that have been struggling to keep their doors open during the past two years of pandemic rebounds. Below is the full top 10 of the weekend:

  1. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Disney/Marvel Studios): $185M – 4,534 theatres
  2. The Bad Guys (Universal/Dreamworks Animation): $9.7M (-39.8%) – 3,839 theatres
