Shang-Chi Scores Second Weekend Box Office Win with $35.7M

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings held strong at the box office for its second weekend in a row. The latest from Marvel Studios earned $35.7 million this weekend, which was more than enough to keep the number one spot, despite a 67% drop from last Friday. While the drop seems significant, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is performing like many of its Marvel Cinematic Universe predecessors, including Ant-Man, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Captain Marvel.

    Globally, Shang-Chi has earned just over $257 million since debuting in movie theaters last weekend. In addition to holding the number one spot in North America, the movie was able to stay on top in Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Korea, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain, and the UK. The latest from the MCU still does not have an official release date in China, but news on that is expected soon. As for IMAX screenings, Shang-Chi has earned $21 million globally, with $8 million of that haul coming from overseas markets.
