The highly anticipated neurosurgeon-turned-sorcerer sequel, which sees Marvel hero Benedict Cumberbatch explore parallel worlds, grossed $187 million in its first three days in theaters last week.

Internationally, the film has grossed $396 million since its release.

A distant second was the animated film “The Bad Guys,” outlaw animals that try to become nice, with just $6.9 million from Friday to Sunday.

Like last week, the blue hedgehog from “Sonic 2” completes the podium in third place with $4.6 million.

New to theaters, “Firestarter,” a half-crime, half-fantasy film based on a novel by genre master Stephan King, is off to a disappointing start with a fourth-place finish and just $3.8 million in revenue.

Zac Efron and Sydney Lemmon play the parents of Ryan Kiera Armstrong, an 11-year-old girl with extraordinary pyrokinesis abilities who is being hunted down by a mysterious government agency that would like to use her fire-triggering abilities to create a weapon of mass destruction.
