Box Office: ‘Shang-Chi’ triumphs, ‘Malignant’ misfires
HOLLYWOOD - “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” rules the domestic box office collecting $35.8 million in its second weekend in theaters.
Globally, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” has cleared the $250 million mark with revenues currently at $257.6 million. With $145.6 million at the domestic box office, the film is already the fourth-highest grossing film of 2021 and, if momentum sustains, it could give “Black Widow” ($182 million to date) a run for its money as the year’s biggest earner.
Even without a release date set in China, an important market for Marvel movies, box office receipts for “Shang-Chi” appear to be encouraging for Disney, variety.com reported.
Universal’s slasher film “Candyman” nabbed the No. 4 spot. After three weeks of release, the movie had amassed $48 million in the U.S. and Canada and an additional $10.9 million internationally.
Disney’s family adventure “Jungle Cruise” rounded out the top five. The film, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, has earned $109 million at the domestic box office and $194 million worldwide.
