Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which was released a week ago opened on a high note. With advance booking which started nearly a month before its release, the collections of the film were expected to record new benchmarks. However, with lacklustre reviews and less than appreciative word of mouth Doctor Strange 2 saw an immense drop in business on its first Monday. However, despite this, the film’s overall collections have made it past the Rs. 100 cr mark by the end of its first week.
In this box office report, we look at the collections of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness while comparing the same to the lifetime collections of previous Hollywood releases. Not surprisingly, Doctor Strange 2 that raked in Rs. 101.49 cr in its first week has already surpassed the life time collections of previous releases like Jurassic World which collected Rs. 101 cr, Fast And Furious 8 which collected Rs. 86.23 cr, and Spider-Man: Far From Home which had collected Rs. 86.11 cr. with this, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness currently ranks as the seventh all-time highest Hollywood grosser in India. Though the business of the film is still far behind certain other releases like Avengers: Endgame which collected Rs. 373.22 cr, Avengers: Infinity War which collected Rs. 227.43 cr, and Spider-Man - No Way Home which collected Rs. 218.41 cr, it is expected to continue its box office run.
Currently, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness continues to run in theatres, and is expected to see another jump in collections over its second weekend. In fact, it will come as no surprise if the business of the film surpasses the lifetime collections of releases like The Lion King which collected Rs. 158.71 cr, and Fast & Furious 7 which collected Rs. 108 cr in the coming days.
