Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” reigned supreme at the domestic box office, raising দ্বিতীয় 35.8 million in its second weekend in theaters.
Led by Simu Liu and Aukwafina, superhero movie ticket sales have dropped by 53% since the beginning, which is equivalent to many Marvel installments in pre-epidemic times. Significantly, “Shang-Chi” holds better than “Black Widow”, an adaptation of the comic book starring Scarlett Johansson, which has lost nearly 70% of its sophomore outings. “Black Widow” has opened simultaneously at Disney Plus (for an additional 30 30), while “Shang-Chi” is only running at the cinema.
Box office receipts for “Shang-Chi” seem to have inspired Disney, with the studio announcing last week that the rest of its 2021 slate মার Marvel’s “Eternals” and Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” adaptations সব will all be shown exclusively in theaters. The news is particularly promising for theater operators, as Disney Films is regularly the highest-grossing film of the year and most multiplexes in the United States and Canada are scrambling to sell tickets to home movies on streaming platforms.
The only new nationwide release of the weekend, no match for the Warner Bros. horror film “Malignant”, “Shang-Chi”, the twisted thriller debuted from 3,485 locations for 5.57 million. Horror during the epidemic is a bad result because it’s on a reliable big screen, and when James One, co-producer of “The Conjuring” Universe and “S” franchise, has a track record for cinematic horror but a Bockers twist ending, as well as genre. Appropriate reviews (5% on Rotten Tomatoes) weren’t enough to entice viewers to watch a movie that, like every one of Studio’s 2021 releases, was available on HBO Max at the same time. It landed a “C” grade in Cinemascore, which is not good for its future prospects.
Abroad, “Malignant” has generated থেকে 6.3 million from 69 international markets for a total of .5 9.5 million internationally and $ 15.1 million globally.
“It’s a weak opening for a genre during the epidemic,” said David, a Gross who manages the movie consulting firm Franchise Entertainment Research. “Because the film is available on HBO, this start is below average.”
In order to establish a weekend ticket sales approach to the opening words of “Malignants”, it has created an equal amount of Disney’s sci-fi action comedy “Free Guy” with Ryan Reynolds on the fifth weekend of release. In second place, “Free Guy” pocketed .8 5.8 million from 6,50 locations, with its internal tally rising to $ 101.5 million, an impressive sum for the original property.
Universal’s slasher film “Candyman” jumped from 27.29 places to No. 4 with 8 8.8 million. Three weeks after its release, the movie grossed $ 48 million in the United States and Canada, and an additional 10.9 million internationally.
Disney’s family adventure “Jungle Cruise” ranked in the top five, with ফ্রে 2.4 million in the seventh frame.
More to come.
