For a third straight weekend, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is king of the box office. The Marvel Studios produced film managed to bring in $21.7 domestically. Overall in North America, the movie has brought in $177M.
Remarkably, the Simu Liu-led film only dropped 37% from its second weekend. According to Forbes’ Scott Mendelson, this is the lowest drop ever for an MCU film in its third weekend.
At the rate it’s going, Shang-Chi looks like it will become the first film to cross $200M domestically in the pandemic era. Black Widow, which was given a hybrid release in July, currently holds the stateside record ($183M).
Globally, Shang-Chi has now brought in over $320M. Even without a China release, I suspect it will also pass Black Widow ($377M) worldwide in the coming weeks.
