The sequel to “Strange” retains the box office crown


With no real big releases, Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” understandably stayed atop the US box office in its second weekend.

Raising $16.7 million on Friday, that marks an 81% drop from its whopping $90 million opening day tally a week ago.

The drop is expected to even out somewhat by the end of the weekend, with the movie likely grossing $60-65 million this weekend to balance out with a drop of around 67% the second weekend, one of the biggest drops yet. uttered to date for a Marvel Studios movie. .

The Sam Raimi-led feature has topped $550 million globally in just nine days and should top the $300 million domestic gross sometime over the next week.

The only new wide release this weekend is the Zac Efron-directed remake of “Firestarter,” which also premieres simultaneously on Peacock. The film earned $1.5 million on Friday and is aiming for a $3.6 million weekend overall. Bad critical reviews and a pitiful C. CinemaScore isn’t going to help.
