Doctor Strange continues performing its magic at the box office, which is definitly no trick, as the Scott Derrickson-directed movie that introduces the MCU's supernatural genre has now passed Thor, Ant-Man, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Incredible Hulk at the U.S. box office.

Doctor Strange has a current domestic haul of $181.54 million, which beats out Thor ($181m), Ant-Man ($180.2m), Captain America: The First Avenger ($176.6m) and The Incredible Hulk ($134.8m).

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.

Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
