Disney’s newest Marvel hit, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” obliterated Labor Day weekend box office records, bringing in a whopping $75.5 million over three days. It’s projected to bring in $90 million for the full four-day weekend, according to Comscore.
Why it matters: It’s three-day opening was the second-highest so far during the pandemic after Disney’s other Marvel hit, “Black Widow,” proving the power of the Marvel franchise to lure people to theaters.
Be smart: “Shang-Chi” was expected to do well in part because it didn’t have much competition over the weekend and because of the way it was released.
Asian turnout helped to fuel ticket sales for Hollywood’s first big-budget, Asian-led superhero film. According to Bloomberg, citing figures from Disney, Asian filmgoers “represented about 17% of theater attendees over the weekend, more than double the usual turnout for a Marvel film.”
The big picture: The film’s success gives the movie theater industry hope heading into the fall that more studios will continue to keep their hits on the release schedule, even as the Delta variant continues to impact consumer confidence broadly.

Disney’s new Marvel hit “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is expected to break records at the box office this weekend, giving the movie theater industry a glimmer of hope heading into the fall.
Why it matters: A few recent box office hits like “Candyman” and Disney’s “Free Guy” prove that consumers are still willing to go to the theater despite the Delta variant. But overall, the box office is still pacing far behind 2019 totals and likely won’t be able to recover meaningfully until 2022.
