As everyone could have predicted (we understood this wellbut we won’t pat each other on the shoulders for that), Bad guys it lost its somewhat surprising spot at the top of the box office after three weeks thanks to its debut Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness, which opened this weekend at $ 185 million. Not only is it the biggest debut of the year, but it’s more than the total earnings of any other weekend this year – meaning it made more money this weekend than any other movie combined earned any other weekend. That’s a lot of money, you see. (Not really Spider-Man: No way home money, as predicted by Benedict Cumberbatchbut still impressive.)

Everything later Dr. Strange has been almost identical for the last few weeks, so let’s talk about it Dr. Strange a little more: It is open in 4500 cinemas, which is huge, but before you accuse Marvel Studios and Disney of harassing cinema chains and bruce-forcing up to that $ 185 million by placing the film on each screen, its average per screen ($ 40,000) is significantly higher than anything else on the charts. That means it plays on a ton of screen and all those screens make a ton of money each. Surprise, surprise! Marvel movies are popular!

But now let’s talk about those other movies, some we’ve been talking about for seven weeks. Bad guys sits just under $ 60 million in total, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 he pulled ahead of the total domestic earnings of the first film (which had a lack of opening against COVID), Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets almost made in five weeks as Dr. Strange made in one, All Everywhere All At Once again it slipped a bit (people have so much time just for multiverse movies), Northerner hang on, The lost city staying in seventh place for the second week in a row, The unbearable weight of enormous talent falls to only $ 1.5 million, something so-called Memory pops up even though we don’t remember what it is about, and, finally, Father Stu is still there. Dr. Strange he played in more than four thousand theaters, boys. You don’t have to watch a movie with Mel Gibson!

Here again is a list of the top 10 in a format that is less informative and less fun to read, but is obviously good for our Google search results. You can see the same list at Box Office Mojo.
