Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will repeat as box office champion. It’s expected to earn another $75 million in its second weekend.
One new arrival, Firestarter starring Zac Efron, cannot compete against the Marvel Universe. The horror flick based on the Stephen King novel will struggle to make $10 million. Firestarter will also stream this weekend on Peacock.
Looking ahead to Memorial Day holiday weekend: Tom Cruise and Top Gun: Maverick aim to earn $100 million. Critics raved at the world premiere. There’s chatter that Top Gun: Maverick deserves Academy Award Best Picture consideration. It’s that good. (Deadline)
