Global box office top 5 breakdown weekend 24th - 26th September 2021

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Four weeks in and a fourth weekend at the top for the Marvel superhero movie which this weekend takes $27.2 Million from 45 counties, a 35% drop over last weekend.

The movie has now taken $363.3 Million over its 4 weeks of release and is the fourth highest grossing global movie of 2021.


Dune tried to take Shang-Chi this weekend but did quite get there as the movie takes $26.3 Million over the weekend, a small 29% drop over last week.

The movie is still only released in 32 countries with many big markets yet to come, the movie to date has taken $76.5 Million, and with markets like the UK and US still to come this has a long way to go.

Cloudy Mountain

The smash hit Chinese movie is still only released in its home terretory and this weekend remains at number 3 with $10.5 Million over the weekend, this is a 43% drop over last weekend.

The movie has a $58.2 Million total so far.

Free Guy

The smash hit action comedy remains at number 4 this weekend with $9.2 Million from 49 countries, a 32% drop over last weekend.

Despite the fact that the movie is now on its decent now the movie has been on the top 5 for 7 weeks and has taken $317 Million and is the 6th top movie of 2021 globally.

Dear Evan Hansen

Highest new entry of the week is the music drama which makes its debut at 5 with $7.5 Million, fairly good considering it is only released in 2 countries.

The movie has potential limited appeal and recent movies in the same genre like The Prom found its audience on streaming rather than in cinemas.

Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings retained the top of the box office this weekend for the third weekend in a row with Warner Bros. new Dune retelling coming in at 2.

Dune got a release in many markets this weekend, but the big markets like America, Australia, UK and China are still to come in October, it was still the highest new release on the global box office.

Chinese movie Cloudy Mountain was also new at number 3 this weekend while further down the chart Clint Eastwoods new movie Cry Macho was new at 7 with $4.8 Million and All About My Mother was new at 8 with $4.6 Million.

Global box office top 5 breakdown weekend 17th - 19th September 2021

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Third weekend at the top for the latest Marvel character as the movie takes an excellent $42 Million from 44 countries, a 41% drop over last weekend.

The movie has been one of the strongest new characters for the Marvel franchise and this week its total global gross climbs to $320.5 Million.

Shang-Chi is now the 5th top movie of 2021 globally and the 3rd top Hollywood movie of the year behind Black Widow and Fast and Furious 9.


Warner Bros. release Director Denis Villeneuve telling of Frank Herbert's classic Sci-Fi novel across 24 countries this weekend and the movie makes its debut at number 2 this weekend with $36.8 Million.

The movie is getting a slow global release with much of the world getting it in October, and this could mean the film gets a long global shelf life.

Previews have happened in America and the UK for the movie and the reviews have been favourable which could make it one of the top global movies of the year, although this also happened with Villeneuve Blade Runner 2049 and that movie didn't perform as well as expected.

Cloudy Mountain

Chinese movies have done exceptionally well this year and another hit movie from the country makes its debut at number 3 this weekend with a gross of $18.6 Million from a single terretory.

Free Guy

Director Shawn Levy's video game inspired movie has done far better than expected and this weekend drops to number 4 but still takes $13.6 Million from 49 countries, a 41% drop over last weekend.

This takes the movies total global gross to $298.2 Million over its 6 weeks of release and is the 6th top movie of 2021 across the world.

The Paw Patrol Movie


Another movie which has done better than expected is the children's TV favourite gone to the big screen which this weekend takes $7.3 Million, only a 7% drop, from a massive 56 countries giving it a total global gross of $103.2 Million after 6 weeks of release.

Director Denis Villeneuve brings his vision of Frank Herbert's novel Dune to the big screen which has been given a 12A rating by the BBFC for moderate violence, threat, bloody images.

The movie stars Timothe Chalamet as Paul Atreides and Zendaya as Chani in lead roles with Oscar Issac also in a starring role.

The movie is directed by Denis Villeneuve who also directed Blade Runner 2049 in 2017.

Movie Synopsis

Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet's exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence, only those who can conquer their own fear will survive.

BBFC certificate breakdown.

  • Title: Dune
  • BBFC age rating: 12A Certificate
  • Reason: moderate violence, threat, bloody images
  • Release date: 22nd October 2021
  • Runtime: 155m (2 hour 35 minutes)
  • Director: Denis Villeneuve
  • Starring: Timothe Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac

As the blockbuster movies from 2020 slowly get delayed until 2021 the latest to move in unsurprisingly Denis Villeneuve's Dune adaptation will will now see a release on October 1st 2021.

This is, at the moment, the same release date as The Batman starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Matt Reeves, so I suspect that might be on the move as well as its currently still in production and has been hit with CODIV-19 while filming which has caused delays.

This only leaves Death On The Nile and Wonder Woman 1984, and maybe Free Guy which got a new trailer today, left as movies to come out in 2020 that can be considered major blockbusters (Coming 2 America surely isn't ready yet!).

Last week the latest Bond movie No Time To Die got moved to April 2021 leaving the release schedule rather empty.

As I have written about today this is very worrying for the cinema industry that has started to, for the second time this year, shut down, this time not just because of COVID-19, through lack of films being shown.

2021 is shaping up to be one of the biggest ever year for blockbusters and at the moment we have not only some of the biggest films of 2020 now next year but all the films that should have come out in 2021!

A new trailer and poster has been released for upcoming movie Free Guy both of which can be seen below.

Starring among others Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer the movie is directed by Shawn Levy and it has a release date of 11th December 2020.

At the moment this will be the next 'big' release at cinemas with most 2020 blockbusters moving to 2021, All thats left after this movie is Death On The Nile, Dune then Wonder Woman 1984 all of which also have December release.

Synopsis Of: The Movie

Are video games real? Free City is an open world ono-line game like Grand Theft Auto or Fortnite and Guy (Ryan Reynolds) is one of the world non-player character (or NPC, a character that humans cant play with) who is working as a simple bank teller in the game.

Thanks to some programmers who inserted a bit of code into the game Guy becomes aware of his world being a video game and sees an opportunity to become the hero, instead of a nobody.

With the developers wanting to shut the game down Guy must race against the odd to stop this from happening.
