‘Shang-Chi’ Crosses $200 Million Domestically First Film of The Pandemic Era to Hit The Milestone

Going into its fifth weekend, Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is continuing to show strong numbers at the pandemic era box office. On Thursday, the film became the first film to hit $200 million domestically in the pandemic era.

The film is closing in on $370M at the worldwide box office, as it currently sits at $366M, so Shang-Chi should hit the mark by the end of the weekend. The film is expected to be the number 2 film at this weekend’s box office behind Sony/Marvel’s newest film Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which took in $11.6M in Thursday night previews, this ends Shang-Chi’s four-week reign at number one.

What makes this news so astounding is that ShangChi was able to do this without a streaming release, versus the day and date model with Disney+ Premier Access that films like Black Widow and Jungle Cruise had prior. The film is set to hit Disney+ on November 12. The success of the film also gave The Walt Disney Company the confidence to release their remaining 2021 theatrical slate to an exclusive theatrical release, so no Disney+ for Eternals or Encanto.
