million

To say Doctor Strange is doing well is an understatement.

After two weeks of release, it is already at half-a-billion dollars worldwide, with $503 million in ticket sales according to Box Office Mojo. With a budget of $165 million, it has almost recouped its production costs, not including marketing, with its domestic profits alone ($161 million as of today). In its second weekend, it fell a mere 49 percent from its $85 million opening weekend to $45 million, making it the second-best Week 1-to-Week 2 drop in the last ten MCU movies and second only to Iron Man as the fastest Marvel Studios film to reach $150 million domestically. From international terrorities, the film has collected $341 million so far,

Dr. Stephen Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) life changes after a car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he looks for healing, and hope, in a mysterious enclave. He quickly learns that the enclave is at the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying reality. Before long, Strange is forced to choose between his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.

Directed by Scott Derrickson from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts, C. Robert Cargill & Derrickson, Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, and Scott Adkins. It is in theaters now.

    Dude,…

    Learn the difference between Profit and Revenue

    They’re not the same thing, nor are they interchangeable.

    I really hope you’re not running any businesses and that this is just a difficulty with proper usage of language (Which in and of itself is disturbing given your chosen line of work).
