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 box office. The most recent Marvel movie has topped the charts for the fourth consecutive weekend and is now the highest-grossing home launch of 2021.
“Followers of ‘Shang-Chi’ have continued to be drawn to the multiplex to see the newest Marvel extravaganza as Disney’s theatrical first technique continues to pay huge dividends for the movie,” mentioned Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore.
“Shang-Chi” was one of many first Disney blockbusters to get a theatrical-only launch through the pandemic. Its efficiency has inspired the studio to release the rest of its 2021 slate in movie theaters exclusively.
Globally, “Shang-Chi” has generated $363.4 million, the fourth-highest haul of 2021.
“The movie’s run is a powerful assertion for the way profitable theatrical exclusivity stays to the business’s ecosphere, and a sign for what crowd-pleasing films can do as field workplace restoration prepares for its subsequent part starting with October’s packed slate,” mentioned Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at Boxoffice.com.
