Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has rocketed to an estimated $450 million (about Rs. 3,482 crore) at the worldwide box office on its opening weekend. That is the second biggest global debut for a Hollywood movie during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic — Spider-Man: No Way Home is the first — and the fourth biggest of all time for a Marvel Cinematic Universe chapter, after Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, and the aforementioned No Way Home. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ $12.7 million (about Rs. 98 crore) opening weekend in India is also the fourth biggest for Hollywood, with the top three slots occupied by those exact same movies.

Of that $450 million worldwide, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness grossed an estimated $185 million (about Rs. 1,431 crore) from cinemas in the US and Canada, with the remaining $265 million (about Rs. 2,051 crore) coming in from 49 markets elsewhere. The biggest markets outside of the two North American markets are South Korea with $30 million (about Rs. 232 crore), followed by the UK at $24.7 million (about Rs. 191 crore), Mexico at $21.5 million (about Rs. 166 crore), Brazil at $16.3 million (about Rs. 126 crore), India at the aforementioned $12.7 million, Australia at $12.6 million (about Rs. 97 crore), Germany at $12 million (about Rs. 92 crore), France at $11 million (about Rs. 85 crore), Japan at $9.4 million (about Rs. 72 crore), and Italy at $9 million (about Rs. 69 crore).

Aside from scoring the fourth biggest opening for a Hollywood movie in India, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness jumped to the fifth position in Malaysia and sixth in South Korea (assuming you include previews).

For Marvel Studios, that $33 million figure is the fifth best global opening in IMAX.
