News: Doctor Strange Expected To Beat Projections And Win Opening Weekend Box Office

Early numbers suggest that Doctor Strange will exceed expectations and win its domestic opening weekend.

 The new Marvel film is expected to exceed the projected opening weekend box office of $75 million and is looking to open somewhere near $84 million when the dust finally settles. It earned an estimated $32.6 million on Friday, which also included all Thursday night showings. Trolls earned $12.3 million on Friday and is expected to come in second place with a weekend total of around $44 million. Hacksaw Ridge earned $5.2 million on Friday and should end up in third place with around $14 million.
There is still some time for the supreme sorcerer to rake in more than $84 million that it's now expected to earn.
