Los Angeles: “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”, the first Asian superhero in the Marvel series, managed to retain the top spot at the North American box office for the second consecutive week, as the weekly revenues of this “Disney” tape reached 35, $8 million, according to provisional figures released Sunday by the Exhibitor Relations Group, which specializes in this field.
This brought the cumulative total of revenue in American and Canadian theaters to $145.6 million, this movie starring Chinese-Canadian actor Simo Liu. The actor plays the character of an ex-assassin who, in his youth, escaped from a domineering father.
The family comedy “Free Guy” climbed to second place, with $5.8 million. The film addresses in a simplified way the boundaries between the virtual and the real, as it revolves around the story of a character in a video game played by Ryan Reynolds, who seeks to determine her own destiny, which leads to a defect in the game that its creators believed to be a well-designed one.
And the movie “MALIGNANT” came in third place, as it made at the beginning of its shows 5.6 million dollars, and analyst David Gross, who runs the “Franchise Entertainment Research” center, saw it as “a weak start for a cinematic genre that has shown during the pandemic its resilience.”
Another horror movie, “Candyman,” took fourth place with $4.8 million last weekend, bringing to 48 million the cumulative gross of Universal Studios this tape, a remake of the 1992 hit.
Fifth in the ranking is the adventure family movie “Jungle Cruise” from “Disney”, with 2.4 million dollars.
