Based on early box office projections, it's looking like Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange" film could have the biggest opening weekend of the Fall at the domestic box office. However, that might not be enough to top the numbers of previous Marvel films that have released in November, like "Thor: The Dark World," which saw a whopping $85.7 million opening weekend at the domestic box office.
According to Deadline, "Doctor Strange" is currently tracking to make between $55 million and $75 million from the domestic box office alone in its opening weekend. Advance tickets for the feature went on sale Monday, October 10.
So far, Disney has grossed the most among other major studios for its films in 2016. Thanks to "Doctor Strange," and in the following weeks, "Moana" and "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," which open November 23 and December 16, respectively, it's looking like the House of Mouse will hold that record. In total, Disney has raked in $2.1 billion from its films released this year -- $617 million ahead of rival studio Warner Bros.
Directed by “Sinister’s” Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Wong, “Doctor Strange” opens on November 4, 2016.
