November 16th, 2016

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange remained in first place with $60.2 million in 53 markets over the weekend for totals of $339.6 million internationally and $492.6 million worldwide. This puts the film ahead of the lifetime total of Thor and into 11th place in the MCU. It will be at least a couple of spots higher by this time next week. The film had a stronger than expected hold in China down $22.54 million over the weekend for a two-week total of $83.22 million. It also remained in first place in South Korea with $4.35 million on 951 screens over the weekend for a total of $36.22 million after three weeks of release. Up next for the film is Argentina on the 24th, while it doesn’t end its run until next year when it opens in Japan.

Trolls remained in second place, again, with $18.3 million in 68 markets over the weekend for totals of $128.3 million internationally and $222.2 million worldwide. It has covered its entire $125 million production budget and will break even early in its home market run.

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk debuted in third place with $13.2 million in 10 markets. Almost all of its weekend haul came from China, where it opened in second place with $11.67 million.

One Piece Film Gold opened in fourth place with $10.2 million in 4 markets over the weekend. Almost all of that came from the film’s third place debut in China, where it pulled in $10.06 million.

Arrival rounded out the top five with $10 million in 25 markets, including a first place, $3.64 million debut in the U.K.
