Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is on its way to hitting $185 million to $200 million in its domestic debut and is one of the biggest openings of all time domestically after grossing an enormous $90 million on Friday.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness grossed $36 million in Thursday previews. The opening of Doctor Strange 2 at the box office is almost 40% high of the opening day in figures via previews, which shows the opening weekend is a hit!
Doctor Strange 2 Box Office Collection
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ gross margin would still be a bigger jump from Doctor Strange’s (an $85 million debut in November 2016).
Saimi directed Doctor Strange 2 released overseas on Wednesday, grossing around $139.3 million so far for an early global total of $229.3 million through Friday.
How Doctor Strange 2 is different from other MCU movies?
This film earned more in one day than Marvel’s Eternals, Black Widow and Shang-Chi earned. Doctor Strange 2 is confirmed to have the second biggest Covid-era debut behind Spider-Man: No Way Home which grossed $260 million from a $121 million last December.
Not only that, its timing is too good to be perfect as its $90 million Friday gross would be the fourth-biggest opening weekend since 2019 behind only Venom: Let There Be Carnage ($90.03 million), The Batman ($134 million) and version 2.0 of Spider-Man 3.
This success is possible only because of the ensemble appearances by Doctor Strange(Benedict Cumberbatch). After Doctor Strange (2016), he appeared in many Marvel series and movies that led to the $91 million opening of the movie.
If the opening show raises its stakes, it will more likely achieve a $205-$220 million opening weekend and can stand on par with the three Avengers sequels and Captain America: Civil War.
