Stephen Chow’s comedy “The Mermaid” opened in the U.S. in just 35 theaters over the weekend and packed them with a $1M opening, averaging a staggering $29,000 per theater -- the highest of all films currently in release. That’s nearly twice that of “Deadpool’s,” the top-grossing film in the U.S.

New Set Photos From Marvel Studios' 'DOCTOR STRANGE' Several set photos have made their way online from the London set of Marvel Studios' and director Scott Derrickson's "DOCTOR STRANGE" starring Benedict Cumberbatch ("SHERLOCK"), Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 YEARS A SLAVE"), Tilda Swinton ("HAIL, CAESAR!"), Rachel McAdams ("SPOTLIGHT") and Benedict Wong ("THE MARTIAN").The photos taken came directly from the Anything Cumberbatch Twitter page and Twitter user Sanford Dickert.

It has been a while since fans got their first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange last December. Since then, new images have been scarce and mostly relegated to concept art. Most of Marvel’s marketing efforts have been focused on the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, since that will be the next MCU film to hit theaters. Now, however, filming for Doctor Strange has begun in London, and while the filmmakers for Star Wars: Episode VIII are able to use counter-drones to keep peeping Toms away from their set, that is not an option when filming in a major metropolitan area.
