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.

Dune

Dune

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

 </h2>

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.
