Dr Strange takes all-comers at the Australian box office

Indigenous Western The Drover's Wife faces off against the might of Hollywood – good thing they have different audiences.
Dr Strange with many arms

There is one movie which is basically crushing all opposition at the moment. Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has made $27.6m in two weeks even though it dropped 50% last weekend. On 774 screens it is absolutely everywhere and justifying the commitment of such extravagant real estate by the exhibitors. 

It is hard to resist a package containing Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, multiple universes, Marvel, a sequel, Sam Raimi as director, Kevin Feige producing, all wrapped up in a $290m budget.
