The film, a prequel to the hugely successful Harry Potter franchise, is the first in a new five-film installment in the fantasy series. "Doctor Strange," the latest entry in the Marvel movie canon, was pushed to second place with $17.6 million - putting its domestic gross at $181.5 million after three weeks in theaters. And rounding out the top three was the animated family movie "Trolls," bringing in $17.5 million on its third weekend in theaters.
