BOX OFFICE: DOCTOR STRANGE Exceeds Expectations As It Takes Aim At Sensational $80+ Million Weekend

BOX OFFICE: DOCTOR STRANGE Exceeds Expectations As It Takes Aim At Sensational $80+ Million Weekend

The Sorcerer Supreme's big screen debut has gone even better than expected, and after a huge Friday, Doctor Strange now looks set to earn well beyond what many analysts initially predicted it would.

Doctor Strange scored an impressive $32.6 million yesterday, a figure which points to the critically acclaimed release earning an estimated $81 million - $83 million this weekend. Whether or not it will ultimately top Thor: The Dark World's $85.7 million for Marvel's best November opening remains to be seen, but it's obviously worth pointing out that that was a sequel and Doctor Strange is an origin story.

Doctor Strange has an A CinemaScore, so there's a chance that ticket sales will continue to increase and it will actually make more than the estimates above. It's also possible that the movie could have gone even higher, but it's faced stiff competition this weekend from DreamWorks Animation's Trolls. After making $12 million yesterday, the family friendly flick looks set to go as high as $43 million.
