Disney’s “Shang-Chi” box office is moving towards three-pit.
The Marvel Superhero Adventure, starring Simu Liu and Aukwafina, is expected to earn about 17 17 million between Friday and Sunday, representing a 50% drop over the previous weekend. Although two new movies with Gerard Butler ক্ল Clint Eastwood’s “Cry Macho” and “Copshop” are opening nationwide, “Shang-Chi” can’t be expected to lose on the domestic box office charts.
Since debuting in theaters on Labor Day holidays, “Sha-Chi” has raised 146 million in the United States and Canada and is heading for the release of the first epidemic-era, surpassing $ 200 million at the domestic box office. So far, no movie has been able to break that milestone, but Disney and Marvel’s “Black Widow” ($ 183 million) and Universal’s “F9: The Fast Saga” ($ 172 million) have come very close.
In pre-Covid times, the “200 million” Shang-chi “in North America would not have been particularly significant. But considering the state of the movie during the epidemic, the film’s box office earnings have encouraged Disney. One of the few Shang-Chi studio releases is in theaters only (instead of the day-to-date at Disney Plus), a method that plans to continue with Marvel’s “Eternals” and Steven films for the rest of 2021. A remake of Spielberg’s “West Side Story”.
In the new release, “Cry Macho” will probably surpass “Copshop”, but both films are aiming for a single-digit debut.
“Cry Macho” is estimated to earn $ 5 million to $ 7 million from 3,800 theaters. If the $ 33 million budget film fails to meet expectations and manages to draw a significant crowd, it will be the latest Warner Bros. film. Over the past few weeks, the studio’s sci-fi romance drama “Memories” and thriller “Malignant” have been misplaced at the box office এমনকি even by the coveted coveted standard.
Eastwood, 91, has hit or missed the box office in recent years. “The Mule” was a commercial success, grossing $ 100 million in the United States and Canada and $ 174 million worldwide in 2019. However, his 2018 plays “Richard Jewel” and “15:17 Paris” failed to resonate with audiences and were tapped out in North America for $ 22 million and $ 36 million, respectively.
“Cry Macho” has received mixed reviews and contains 50% on rotten tomatoes. The film takes place in the late 70’s and follows a Texan former rodeo star (Eastwood) who agrees to help his ex-boss (played by Dwight Yokom) get his son out of Mexico. In his review DiversityLeading film critic Owen Gliberman praised the exuberant filmmaker and described “Cry Macho” as “enjoyable enough”, “it’s friendly and absurd and formulaic, an insulting and good-natured thing, and it’s a completely trivial matter.”
For ticket buyers the western drama can compete with the action thriller “Copshop” starring Butler and Frank Grillo. Open Road Films and STX’s R-rated “Copshop” is opening in 2,200 theaters and is expected to gross ৫ 5 million over the weekend. Set in a small town police station, “Copshop” centers on a heated confrontation between a hitman, a rookie cop, and a con con artist.
In limited release, Searchlight is launching “The Ice of Tammy Faye” at 425 venues across the country. Directed by Michael Schwalter (“The Big Sick”), the awards dramatize the rise, fall, and redemption of promising televinists Tammy Faye Baker (Jessica Chastain) and Jim Baker (Andrew Garfield). The couple became famous in the 80’s for becoming one of the largest religious broadcasting networks in the world. “The Ice of Tammy Faye” had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and received mostly positive reviews.
