Film: Dr Strange makes lots of friends at the Box Office

The new Disney-Marvel comic book-based movie,Doctor Strange” has proven to be magical onscreen and off, earning a massive estimated $85 million on its domestic debut this weekend.
That’s significantly higher than predictions of $73 million made earlier last week — a magical way to kick off another would-be franchise within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Benedict Cumberbatch vehicle has now amassed more than $240 million overseas and is the 14th consecutive title in the MCU to debut in first place domestically.

It also marked the biggest November debut off all time for IMAX, earning $24.2 million globally this weekend from 1,001 of its large-format screens in 66 markets.

A huge 47% of its domestic opening came from 3D screens, with RealD 3D representing $24 million of the weekend’s $85 million total.

DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls” came in second with an estimated $45.6 million on its three-day debut, just shy of the $47 million predicted by trackers early last week.

Mel Gibson's directorial return, the World War II drama “Hacksaw Ridge,” distributed by Lionsgate and playing in 2,886 locations, bowed to an estimated $14.8 million in third place. It stars Andrew Garfield as a conscientious objector who saved dozens of soldiers’ lives in Japan.   
Rounding out the top five are holdovers — Lionsgate’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween” and Sony’s “Inferno”
