Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

USA – Far ea­sier to pre­dict than a pre­si­den­ti­al elec­ti­on are the chan­ces of a dif­fe­rent pro­mi­nent No­vem­ber can­di­da­te: “Doc­tor Stran­ge,” star­ring Be­ne­dict Cum­ber­batch, should win its top seat han­di­ly at the Ame­ri­can box of­fi­ce this week­end. And per­haps the best bel­l­wether so far oc­cur­red over Hal­lo­ween week­end: Dis­ney/Mar­vel’s “Doc­tor Stran­ge” gros­sed $86 mil­li­on over­seas, upon ope­ning in 33 fo­reign mar­kets. That in­ter­na­ti­o­nal de­but, Dis­ney told Va­ri­e­ty, was ne­ar­ly 50 per­cent ahead of “Ant-Man’s” ear­ly trac­king and 37 per­cent ahead of “Gu­ar­dians of the Ga­laxy” — both com­mer­ci­al hits that re­lied on au­dien­ces em­bra­cing les­ser-known Mar­vel charac­ters, which bo­des well for Doc Stran­ge. Amid that im­pres­si­ve ta­ke, “Doc­tor Stran­ge” gros­sed $7.8 mil­li­on from Imax screens — the hig­hest-gros­sing Oc­to­ber in­ter­na­ti­o­nal de­but from Imax re­ceipts, En­ter­tain­ment Wee­kly re­ports. And “Stran­ge” has yet to open in such lar­ge mar­kets as Bra­zil, Chi­na, Ja­pan and Rus­sia.
