It was to be expected that the impact of Doctor Strange in the World of Madness at the box office during its first weekend was important, but it seems that it will exceed expectations. It all starts with a collection of 90 million dollars adding the projections of Thursday night and those of Friday in the United States, which makes the Marvel Studios film the seventh best first day in the entire history of the country.
With this on the table, some analysts have raised the bar and point to about 200 million dollars for the entire weekend, thus entering the Top 10 of the best releases in the history of cinema at the domestic box office.
If we look at the international market, the film has been collecting since Wednesday in some countries, so adding that day, Thursday and Friday’s big day, we already have 139.3 million dollars.
Adding both figures, we have 229.3 million dollars, and taking into account the estimates, there is already talk of a first weekend that could end with some 450 million dollars raised worldwide.
