Another week, another magical milestone for Doctor Strange.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness–the Disney/Marvel sequel that keeps on giving–has just broken through the much-coveted $500-million barrier worldwide, according to a report in Deadline.
And, proving its power overseas, the sequel has topped the $300-million mark internationally. At domestic box offices, the film has pulled in nearly $215 million.
This achievement should come as no great surprise, given that the sequel enjoyed a $450-million debut weekend–the second-best opener for a Hollywood movie during the pandemic era and the fourth-best ever for an MCU entry.
Industry experts believe the good doctor will likely continue his mystical ride for at least the next two weeks–at which time the much-anticipated (and super-hyped) Top Gun: Maverick will soar into theaters.
Madness–directed by horror legend Sam Raimi from a screenplay by Michael Waldron–stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Xochitl Gomez and Michael Stuhlbarg.
The Marvel Comics character of Dr. Stephen Strange–brought to four-color life by the legendary writer-artist team of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko–first appeared in Strange Tales No. 110 way back in 1963.
