Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness maintained its top spot in the box office this weekend, conjuring another $61 million dollars in its second week. 

Its global earnings now surpass $688 million, further cementing it as one of the highest-grossing movies of the pandemic.  However, its domestic earnings took a 67% tumble from its $185 million debut. 

The animated comedy The Bad Guys stole an additional $6.9 million in its fourth week in theaters and earned a second-place finish.  Coming in third was another animated movie, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, with $4.6 million.

Marking its debut in theaters with an anemic $3.8 million was Firestarter, bowing in fourth place.  It should be noted the Zac Efron-led film is also simultaneously streaming on the NBC streaming service Peacock.

The Michelle Yeoh-starring Everything Everywhere All at Once continued to perform well as word of mouth spreads, earning another $3.3 million in its eighth weeks in theaters.
