Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness cast a spell with the biggest box office opening of the year! The sequel starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen and Rachel McAdams magically raked in 185-million dollars during it’s first weekend. That’s more than double the amount that the original Doctor Strange brought in. Critics say the doctor’s appearance in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ and the popularity of the Disney+ series, ‘WandaVision,’ were no doubt two contributing factors to the film doing so well. It’s also playing in more than 4500 theaters in the U.S. and Canada alone, which according to Disney, is the seventh widest opening ever. For more, click here.
