Box Office Top 20: 'Doctor Strange' conjures $85.1 million

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Marvel's "Doctor Strange" topped a strong weekend at the box office with $85.1 million from North American theaters, according to box office sales reported by the studios on Monday.

There was more money to go around, too. DreamWorks Animation's "Trolls" sang its way into the second place spot with $46.6 million, while Mel Gibson's independently-financed WWII drama "Hacksaw Ridge" took third place with $15.2 million.
