WEEKEND ROUNDUP: 'Doctor Strange' And 'Trolls' Dominate The Box Office

Welcome to WEEKEND ROUNDUP, where we discuss this weekends box office results.  The TOP 3 films for the weekend of November 4-6 were Doctor Strange, Trolls, and Hacksaw Ridge.

Let's take a look at this week's box office results:


All three wide released films that opened this week managed to take the Top 3 spots.  Doctor Strange crushed it in its opening weekend, outdoing most people's expectations by bringing in over $85 million.  Trolls also did exceptionally well with over $45 million.  But it looks like Hacksaw Ridge has a bit of work to do.



The latest outing from Marvel Studios, Doctor Strange, hit theaters this week, soaring past the expectations of most.  The film managed to wrangle up $85.1 million, which is very impressive for such a lesser known character.  It also raked in $240.7 million in foreign grosses for an impressive worldwide total of $325.8 million nearly doubling its $165 million production budget.


The next film up, Dreamworks' Trolls, also opened up this weekend, bringing in an impressive total of $46.6 million.  With a solid foreign gross of $104.8 million, Trolls managed a worldwide total of $151.4 million on a $125 million.


The last film to open up this week was Mel Gibson's latest directorial effort, Hacksaw Ridge.  The film, which stars Andrew Garfield, managed an opening weekend total of $15.2 million total.  Coming with a $40 million production budget, it looks like Hacksaw Ridge may have a tough time reaching a profit.
