Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness plummeted at around 67% during its second week, taking in $61M, even if it opened at record-breaking pandemic box office heights last week. Still, the Sam Raimi-directed film was a commercial success, but repeat viewings aren’t as strong as they were with Spider-Man: No Way Home.
In other Multiversal-related news, Everything Everywhere All At Once is holding out strong with a slight 6% drop from last week, making it the highest-grossing independent film of the year so far. Add another $3.3M to its total, and counting.
Among the new releases, Firestarter was a non-starter with just $3.8M, making it likely to be quickly forgotten about. Pleasure opened in limited release outside the top ten, but through word of mouth could certainly grow in the weeks to come.
