Simu Liu stars as Shang-Chi in Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”
“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” continues to outperform at the domestic field workplace. The newest Marvel movie has topped the charts for the fourth consecutive weekend and is now the highest-grossing domestic release of 2021.
Since its September 3 debut, “Shang-Chi” has garnered $196.5 million in the U.S. and Canada, outpacing ticket gross sales for Universal’s “F9” and Disney’s different Marvel movie “Black Widow.”
“Fans of ‘Shang-Chi’ have continued to be drawn to the multiplex to see the latest Marvel extravaganza as Disney’s theatrical first strategy continues to pay big dividends for the film,” mentioned Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore.
“Shang-Chi” was one of the first Disney blockbusters to get a theatrical-only release throughout the pandemic. Its efficiency has inspired the studio to release the relaxation of its 2021 slate in film theaters completely.
Globally, “Shang-Chi” has generated $363.4 million, the fourth-highest haul of 2021.
“The film’s run is a strong statement for how lucrative theatrical exclusivity remains to the industry’s ecosphere, and a signal for what crowd-pleasing movies can do as box office recovery prepares for its next phase beginning with October’s packed slate,” mentioned Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at Boxoffice.com.
