In its second weekend of release, the latest installment in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe has collected 61 million from 4,534 North American theaters. Ticket sales were down 67 from its opening weekend, marking a steeper drop off compared to recent Marvel movies like “Eternals” (which declined 61 in its second weekend) and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” (which declined 52 in its second weekend). However, that sizable decline is not surprising since “Doctor Strange 2” is coming off the 11th biggest opening weekend in history with 187 million. After 10 days on the big screen, the standalone superhero adventure has grossed a strong 291 million in North America.
At the international box office, the “Strange” sequel added 83.5 million from 49 markets. In total, the film has grossed 688.1 million globally.
