‘Doctor Strange 2’ Advance Ticket Sale to $42 Million – CinemaCon – Deadline
SPOILER ALERT: This post contains details about Doctor Strange’s opening in the Multiverse of Madness
Update for more details Today Disney theatrical casting boss Tony Chambers told CinemaCon attendees that ticket sales for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are now at $42 million. As we announced on April 7, the first presales of 24-hour tickets for Doctor Strange 2 scored a year-to-date record for fandango.
Projections for the film are around $150 million, however, considering how tall those superhero tentpoles, i.e. Spider-Man: No Coming Home ($260 million) and The Batman ($134 million) surpassed their pre-weekend estimates, so don’t be surprised if this Benedict Cumberbatch Marvel wizard film blows its numbers.
“The entertainment landscape has certainly changed a lot over the past few years, but the one thing that hasn’t changed and never will is the power of the movies. Nothing can beat the combined power of Disney, which spans all genres,” Chambers said in her keynote address this morning at Caesars Palace Colosseum Theater.
Chambers also got another big update: the first trailer for Thor love and thunder which dropped last week scored over 209 million views worldwide in its first 24 hours.
Marvel chief Kevin Feige is the first here after Chambers to present footage from the film.
