Last weekend, Disney once again found that switching from distribution of hybrid films to movie theaters was a smart move. The studio’s two productions – “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Free Guy” – not only retained their top spots in the US boxing competition, but also experienced a slight decline in popularity.

Shang-Chi lost only 37% of its viewers and earned $21.7 million. Of all the films that premiered in September, only the horror movie “To” ($29.75 million) from 2017 did better than its third showing in the weekend. However, it is worth remembering that the adaptation of Stephen King’s novel was victorious in the times before the coronavirus pandemic. In just one week, “Shang-Chi” will be able to make more money than “Black Widow”, which brought in $ 183.2 million in American cinemas.

Warner Bros. brand. She has no reason to be satisfied. A new Clint Eastwood movie titled “Cry Macho” earned just 4.51 million at its opening. For comparison, the 2018 Hollywood legend “Smuggler”‘s previous work grossed 17.5 million in its first weekend. dollar. However, this track got better reviews, and it was not shown simultaneously in cinemas and on the streaming service HBO Max.

Two more shows debuting this weekend had worse results. Joe Carnahan’s action movie “Cup Shop” (“Masters Level”, “Survival”) grossed $2.31 million and peaked at number six at the box office. In contrast, the biographical drama “The Eyes of Tami Fey” starring Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield made only $670,000 (9th place) from the start.
