‘Doctor Strange’ Sequel Breaks $800M Barrier Worldwide

by Thomas Tuna

The Master of the Mystic Arts is top gun for one more weekend.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness pulled off a threepeat at the box office this weekend, again claiming the top spot with moviegoers, according to a report in Deadline.

The sequel enjoyed another strong three-day period, running its global total to $803 million. The film has made $461 million from international markets (so far) and another $342 domestically.

The only question now seems to be if it will reach the $1-billion mark globally. Next weekend will be key, with Top Gun: Maverick zooming into theaters. Stiff competition that.

Still and all, though, the good doctor has done remarkably well for himself. Of the 28 MCU features to date, the Doctor Strange sequel stands at No. 11 globally and is the second biggest Hollywood film of the pandemic era.

The sequel–directed by horror legend Sam Raimi from a screenplay by Michael Waldron–stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Xochitl Gomez, Rachel McAdams and Michael Stuhlbarg. In the film, Strange (Cumberbatch) protects America Chavez (Gomez), a teenager capable of traveling the Multiverse, from Wanda Maximoff (Olsen).

The Marvel Comics character of Dr. Stephen Strange–created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko–first appeared in Strange Tales No. 110 way back in 1963.
