‘Downton 2’ Fails To Top ‘Doctor Strange 2’ In Weekend Battle of The Sequels
Even the strange sight of the lock-jawed Crawley clan frolicking on the French Riviera proved to be no match for the three-week-old Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness over the weekend as Downton Abbey: A New Era failed to unseat Marvel’s latest hand-over-fist blockbuster from the top spot in the battle of fan-service sequels. Landing slightly below expectations, Downton 2 debuted in the runner-up spot with a so-so 16 million while Benedict Cumberbatch’s superhero follow-up held onto first place for the third straight frame with a 31.6 million haul. Meanwhile, A24’s psychological horror film, Men, baffled audiences and bowed quietly in fifth place.

Proving that the third weekend can still be the charm, Disney’s Doctor Strange 2 continued to dominate multiplexes, grossing 31.6 million in North America—a dip of -48.8 from the previous session. The latest installment in the MCU scored a 6,969 per-screen average in 4,534 theaters, bringing its three-week domestic box-office total to 342.1 million.
