Marvel is no stranger to big box office debuts and Doctor Strange, the new film from Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios debuted this weekend with an estimated $85 million domestically. This opening continues Marvel Cinematic Universe’s perfect record of #1 openings (14 out of 14 movies).
Internationally, Doctor Strange is also doing pretty well with a total of $240.4 million so far. That’s a global total of $325.4 million in just two weeks. Not too shabby.
Doctor Strange is a smart super hero film with a real trippy set of visual effects. I wouldn’t have been all that surprised if it was under the radar of movie going audiences. I’m glad it is getting the attention it deserves.
Have you seen Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange yet? What did you think?
