参考网上搜到的:Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings - Official Trailer 《尚气与十环传奇》
Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings punched through a box office record with its massive $71.4 million domestic opening weekend.
This news comes by way of Variety, which reports that the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film had the second-best pandemic-era domestic opening weekend. Its $71.4 million box office bow comes in just behind Black Widow's $80.3 million opening weekend debut and just above F9's $70 million opening haul. Shang-Chi also broke a record held by 2007's Halloween for over a decade, according to Variety. Halloween previously held the record for the best Labor Day opening weekend, raking in $30.6 million. The long Labor Day weekend, which has notoriously been a slower weekend at the box office, was no match for Shang-Chi, however, as the movie more than doubled Halloween's box office haul.
Its $71.4 million Labor Day opening weekend now holds the record for the best Labor Day opening weekend ever at the box office. The movie pulled in an additional $56.2 million internationally, too, bringing the global box office total to $127.6 million.
Shang-Chi was released exclusively in theaters, unlike Black Widow, a movie released day-and-date on Disney Plus (which Scarlett Johansson is now suing Disney over). As Variety notes, many speculated that Black Widow's Disney Plus release might have caused box office numbers to be lower than what they would have been had the movie been released exclusively in theaters.
However, Shang-Chi seems to have performed about as well as Black Widow in theaters, although it's important to note that Shang-Chi is a new MCU character while Black Widow featured Johansson's Natasha Romanoff that has been in the MCU for well over a decade. Marvel's Shang-Chi theatrical debut performing about as well as Black Widow's theater release is quite impressive.
