Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

The incredible success of Shang-Chi has given the US and global box office a real boost and has shown the studios that there is still life in cinema despite the strong figures shown by streaming over the long global lockdowns during the pandemic.

This week the Marvel movie takes $13.2 Million on its fourth weekend of release, a 39% drop over last weekend.

This gives the movie a total US gross of $196.4 Million, and the movie has now taken Black Widow at the top grossing movie in the US in 2021, the movie will pass $200 Million by next weekend giving the film another milestone, but there is plenty of competition around the corner so the movie will start its decline from next weekend.

Dear Evan Hanson

Making its debut at number 2 this weekend is music picture directed by Stephen Chbosky which takes $7.5 Million on its first weekend on the box office.

The movie has a niche market but has done well considering it potential audience, and recent similar movies like The Prom and Everybody's Talking About Jamie have gone direct to streaming.

Free Guy

The smash hit action comedy falls to number 3 this weekend but its success has been well received during the re-opening of cinemas, the movie takes $4.12 Million this weekend, a very slim 19% drop over last week.

Cry Macho

Legendary director Clint Eastwood brings his latest movie to the big screen, and goes back to westerns in the process, his latest makes its debut on the chart at number 3 with $4.5 Million.
