Doctor Sleep is the adaptation of Stephen King’s follow up to The Shining. The novel gave fans the final instalment to a story close to their hearts, and now they can see it on the big screen. But how much has the movie made so far, and is it a hit?
As Doctor Sleep has only been released in the USA on November 8, it is tricky to get an idea of the box office figures.
In the UK, the movie has been out since Halloween, as well as in other European countries.
However, some of the larger markets, such as the USA, will not see the movie until November 8, meaning the film’s box office may not reflect how well it has been received.

At present, the movie has made $5.6million (£4.4million) worldwide, having been released in 10 countries which are represented in the takings so far.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Doctor Sleep is predicted to bank $25million (£19.5million) in its opening weekend in the USA, which would certainly give it a help along in its box office takings so far.
The movie will open alongside some others in the USA, including the festive George Michael jukebox musical Last Christmas and US Navy war movie Midway, which will open in time for Veterans’ Day weekend.
While there will be some competition, many outlets are reporting a likely box office win for Doctor Sleep, despite its lukewarm reception.
