‘Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness’ box office collection Day 3: Benedict Cumberbatch starrer records BIG weekend despite facing minor drop on Sunday | English Movie News

Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ raked in Rs 78 crore at the Indian box office over its first weekend, reaffirming the supremacy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The superhero film recorded a huge first, despite collections falling on Sunday. According to reports on boxofficeindia.com, the film saw a minor drop in collections in mass centres, which is reportedly not an uncommon trend for Hollywood releases.

The film that made a smashing start at the ticket windows with a collection of Rs 28 crore on Day 1, earned Rs 26 crore on its first Saturday and saw a further decline in the collection on Sunday with an estimated Rs 24.5 crore total.

With this, ‘Multiverse Of Madness’ has thus far earned an estimated total collection of Rs 78.50 crore.

Despite the falling numbers, the film has been declared a HIT, irrespective of the collections earned on Monday and the week to follow.

According to the report, the decision to open booking for the film a month in advance helped in the overall numbers. The advance bookings may have helped the film register a good collection on Saturday as the numbers were higher than normal.

On the international front, the film scored the biggest opening of 2022 with a total collection of $450 million.

According to Variety, the timeline-bending ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ represents a return to form for the MCU after Covid-era releases ‘Black Widow’ ($80 million debut, plus $60 million on Disney Plus), ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ ($75 million debut) and ‘Eternals’ ($71 million debut).

Due to the pandemic and other extenuating circumstances, those instalments failed to live up to their franchise predecessors in terms of ticket sales.

The box office earnings make it the 11th biggest opening weekend in history. Given the anomaly of reaching those heights, ‘Doctor Strange 2‘ easily delivered the biggest opening weekend of 2022, as well as the second-biggest debut in Covid times.

Since ‘Doctor Strange 2’ is not likely to play in China, Russia or Ukraine, the film will rely on repeat viewings from audiences around the globe to push ticket sales past the coveted $1 billion mark. Only ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ has been able to cross that threshold since Covid took hold.

At the US box office, the ‘Doctor Strange’ follow-up outgrossed its predecessor’s entire opening weekend tally in a single day. ‘Multiverse of Madness’ made $90 million on Friday alone, while the 2016 adventure ‘Doctor Strange’ brought in $85 million between Friday and Sunday.

Since the franchise now spans the big and small screen, Disney Plus shows such as ‘WandaVision’ and ‘What If?’ also contributed to the excitement.

Sam Raimi, the mastermind behind the original ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy, directed “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”

The film picks up as the eponymous neurosurgeon-turned-Avenger, played by Cumberbatch, casts a dangerous spell that forces him to travel into the multiverse to face a mysterious new adversary and alternate versions of himself.

Along with Cumberbatch, the cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff also known as Scarlet Witch, Benedict Wong as Wong and Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez, a teen who can travel between dimensions.
