Review of Domestic Box Office: Shang-Chi Solid in Second Week, Malignant Stumbles

Daljit Kalsi

Moviegoers continued to show love and support for Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, lifting the action pic to $35.7 million (-53%) over its second weekend. Per Deadline, that’s the third-biggest second weekend for a September release following It ($60.1 million) and It Chapter Two ($39.6 million). It was seemingly enough moola for the House of Mouse to announce that the remaining films on this year’s docket will honor a theatrical window and avoid the day-and-date Disney+ release.

Not fairing as well was James Wan’s Malignant, which generated solid reviews but only managed $5.57 million from 3,485 theaters. The gory horror flick also earned a paltry “C” grade from moviegoers, which ranks far below Wan’s usual standards. Still, the film was also available on HBO Max, so who knows how much that affected its box office potential.

Other news releases include Card Counter, which drew $1.1 million from 580 theaters, Show Me the Father, which earned $700,000 from 1,073 theaters, and After We Fall, which collected $428,300K from 230 theaters.
