Weekend Box-Office: DOCTOR STRANGE, TROLLS and HACKSAW RIDGE Make Strong Debuts


As expected, this weekend was huge at the box-office, with "Doctor Strange", "Trolls" and "Hacksaw Ridge" scoring some big numbers.

Find out more about the weekend box office after the jump.

Marvel's "Doctor Strange" was, unsurprisingly, this week's box-office champion. The film grossed $84.9 million domestically, which is the second best in the franchise's solo character origin stories, behind only "Iron Man", which grossed $98.6 when it opened in 2008. Internationally, the film's earnings are now at $240.4 million after 12 days. The production budget is estimated at $165 million, but, as you can see, it's already turned a profit. "Doctor Strange" received a solid reception from both moviegoers ("A" on CinemaScore) and critics (90% on Rotten Tomatoes).

In second place we have DreamWorks' new animated feature, "Trolls" with $45.6 million versus a hefty $125 budget. However, the film has already brought in $104 million overseas, so things are pretty safe for the studio. The film received an "A" on CinemaScore and a 73% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Mel Gibson's "Hacksaw Ridge" finished in third place with a solid $14.7 million from 2,886 theaters. The R-rated war drama based on a true story scored and "A" from moviegoers on CinemaScore and the critical reception added up to an 87% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Tyler Perry's "Boo! A Madea Halloween" got pushed back to #4 and grossed $7.8 million over the weekend. The film now holds a total domestic gross of  $64.9 million versus a $20 million budget.

The Top 5 is rounded up by last week's new release, Ron Howard's "Inferno" which dropped more than 57% from its already lackluster debut. The film only grossed $6.2 million this weekend and the domestic total is now at a dismal $26 million, a historical low point for the franchise, as far as domestic box-office goes. Internationally, it's looking relatively better with a total of $159.3 million grossed in 25 days, but even that's a far cry from the $540 million grossed internationally by "The Da Vinci Code".

New Wide Releases: "Doctor Strange", "Hacksaw Ridge", "Trolls".

Biggest Drop : "Inferno" (-57%)

Smallest Drop : "The Accountant" (-29.8%)
