BOX OFFICE: DOCTOR STRANGE Currently Tracking For A $55 Million - $75 Million Opening Weekend

It should come as no surprise to learn that Doctor Strange looks set to be yet another box office hit for Marvel Studios, and early tracking data points to the movie debuting strongly come November 4th...

Disney has three big movies coming out this winter, with Doctor Strange leading the charge on November 4th (the other two are Moana and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). The first tracking data for the Sorcerer Supreme's big screen debut have been revealed this morning thanks to Deadline, and early projections are pointing to a strong opening weekend between $55 million - $75 million.

Ant-Man scored $57 million last year and went on to gross over $500 million worldwide, so yeah, this is definitely a good start for Doctor Strange. The trade points out that there is a strong interest across the board, and these numbers are actually expected to increase over the next few weeks (positive word of mouth from overseas where it opens first in many territories will also no doubt be a big help).

 
Chances are that these numbers would be even higher, but Marvel faces some stick competition that weekend. DreamWorks Animation's Trolls is expected to earn as much as $40 million, while there's also a lot of positive buzz surrounding Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge starring Andrew Garfield. As things currently stand though, Doctor Strange will easily emerge the victor and land the #1 spot as a result.
