Marvel Hit ‘Doctor Strange 2’ Passes Half a Billion at the Global Box Office


Somewhere there is a universe where Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was a flop, but not in this one. The latest Marvel movie, directed by Sam Raimi, has now grossed over half a billion dollars at box offices around the world.

Doctor Strange 2 is entering its second weekend in theaters, having grossed $185 million in the United States in its opening weekend. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has so far earned a total of $507.8 million at the worldwide box office.

Since the start of the pandemic, Multiverse of Madness has trailed only Spider-Man: No Way Home when it comes to a movie’s opening weekend and international box office total. It helps that you can see the movie only in theaters and not on Disney Plus, unlike other movies released in the depths of the pandemic, like Black Widow. And despite sonic the hedgehog 2 and independent film Everything everywhere all at once doing pretty well, Doctor Strange 2 is also relatively unconcerned with the competition until the blockbuster season kicks off in earnest with Top Gun: Maverick on May 27, Jurassic World Dominion in June, and Thor: Love and Thunder in July.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen star in Doctor Strange 2, in which Evil Dead director Sam Raimi brings a spooky new twist to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“The early parts of the movie could be taken from a 1960s comic book as a monster threatens a woman pushing a pram down a colorful New York street,” I noted in GameSpot’s Multiverse of Madness Review“But as the film progresses, it intensifies the horror. The villain’s monstrous power is signaled by spooky leaps and sinister horror blossoms, building the most macabre final battle you are. likely to see in a family blockbuster.”
