After taking an impressive £1.8million at the UK box office the fiftieth anniversary special of Doctor Who has made an impressive $4.8million.
The specially filmed 3D special played in 660 US cinemas on Monday.
In Australia it made $1.5M (AU).
After only being open for one day, Day of the Doctor globally racked up £6.5million and is currently second place in the US film charts.
With the success of this, I’d say a Doctor Who movie is pretty much guaranteed.

Eagle eyed tweeter, @TheDoctorsJawn has spotted “the little something” Steven Moffat has often said is in the infamous scene from The Reichenbach Fall. If you look closely, you can clearly see the man pull out a bag of blood from inside his jacket pocket.
If you remember, just before his roof top confrontation with Moriarty, Sherlock told Molly he needed her assistance with something. Did she arrange the crowd? The man with the blood?
My personal theory is that Sherlock jumped into the parked, open topped rubbish truck. Then rolled out as it pulled away. The crowd gather to block Watson’s view, as this man covers him in blood.
What do you think, is this how Sherlock did it?
It’s been rumoured and I stress rumoured that during series 8 of Doctor Who, we will see a younger, recast Captain Jack. I’m extremely skeptical that Moffat would go down this route, seeing as we’ve just had the Doctor and River Song storyline.
But, With John Barrowman’s profile rising stateside a recast would certainly make sense. He has just been cast as a series regular in CW’s ‘Arrow’ so, his availability would play a huge factor in him returning as captain Jack. Going with a younger Jack would also make it easier for the writers of Doctor Who and Torchwood, to keep track of the continuity, when/if Torchwood ever returns.
When Jack first met the 9th Doctor, he told him that he had two years of his life missing, Moffat could certainly answer that open plot thread by introducing a younger captain Jack.
But, who would be capable of playing a part played so perfectly by John Barrowman. For me, it’s an easy answer. Beau Mirchoff (pictured above). Now, Mirchoff is not a household name but he does bare an uncanny resemblance to John Barrowman. Beau is probably best known for playing the son, of Barrowman’s character in Desperate Housewives.
