Everything pointed to the fact that ‘Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness’ was going to be a great box office success and it is on its way, since it has achieved the 8th best preview of all time in the United States. And it is that during its premiere on Thursday night it has already added 36 million dollars in a limited number of theaters.
That also makes it the second-best first day in the United States since the start of the pandemic. The first position belongs to ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, which was made with 50 million dollars last December. The film directed by jon watts it would end up making $260 million during its opening weekend in North American theaters.
Recall that ‘Doctor Strange’ debuted at the box office with “only” 85 million dollars during its first days in theaters back in 2016. It is clear that its sequel will far exceed that amount, but now the question is how much it will achieve. It is estimated that the final figure could range between 160 and 200 million dollars.
And it is that the circumstances They rule out the possibility that it is close to the data of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, which on the night before its official release in theaters made 39 million, currently occupying the seventh position, just ahead of ‘Doctor Strange in the multiverse of The madness’. The proof of this is that that weekend ended up adding 257.6 million, a figure very similar to that of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
All in all in Marvel they must be rubbing their hands by now, as it is the first film financed exclusively by them of this Phase 4 that devastates in this way. Recall that ‘Black Widow’ ended its worldwide commercial run with 379 million dollars, while ‘Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings’ stayed at 432 million and ‘Eternals’ at 402. Sam Raimi’s very entertaining film will end up surpassing that data in just a few days.
