BOX OFFICE: “Dr. Strange” prescribed another $61, “Firestarter” flames out at $3.8

A steep falloff didn’t mean the utter collapse of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” A $61 million weekend shows just how much you can get with a whopping 67% falloff, if the opening weekend is big enough.

“Firestarter” is showing on Peacock TV and still managed to earn $3.8 million in theaters. That’s the way to spin that. Stephen King remake, on TV and 325000 patrons still showed up.

That wasn’t anywhere near the $6 “The Bad Guys” took in on its latest weekend, or the $4 million “Sonic 2” rang up.

“Everything Everywhere All At Once” is still taking it in, another $3.3 million as it climbs toward what I figure will be $70 or so when it finishes its run. It will clear the $50 million mark next week.

“Family Camp” opened wide and no one cared. $1 million.
