‘Doctor Strange’ Continues to Dominate North American Box Office


Doctor Strange held onto the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row. The Marvel superhero movie, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton and Rachel McAdams, opened on November 6 with an impressive $85 million haul, and the film has continued to outperform the competition by taking an additional $43 million this weekend.

Doctor Strange continues to do well in the international market as well, bringing in an additional $60.2 million in its third week of release outside the U.S. and Canada – thus bringing the film’s global gross to $492.6 million. It’s expected that the film will break the $500 million mark this week, and will surpass the global box office success of Marvel’s Ant-Man which brought in $520 million last year.

Holding onto second place this weekend was Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick’s Trolls. The film brought in an additional $35 million. Coming in third was the debut of Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner’s Arrival with $24 million ($47 million production budget).

Meanwhile, Danny Glover and Gabrielle Union’s comedy Almost Christmas debuted at four with $15.6 million, and Mel Gibson’s real-life war drama, Hacksaw Ridge, rounds out the top five with $10.8 million.

Opening Friday, November 18, 2016: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Edge of Seventeen, Manchester By The Sea, Nocturnal Animals, and Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
