The number also gives Doctor Strange the tenth best performing Marvel movie in the U.S., and it's just shy of passing Thor: The Dark World ($206m).

This weekend saw Doctor Strange bring in around $17.67 million in its third weekend, a 59% drop compared to last weekend (Fantastic Beasts debuted this weekend to $75 million).  

Doctor Strange has also netted $390,000,000 internationally for a current worldwide gross of $571.5 million.

"Doctor Strange" is directed by Scott Derrickson starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen.
