“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” Broke the Labor Day Weekend Box Office Record

“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” now holds the box office record for the largest Labor Day four-day weekend opening with $90 million.

This nearly TRIPLES the previous Labor Day record held by Rob Zombie’s “Halloween”, which earned $30.6 million in 2007.

“Shang-Chi” has a three-day total of $75.5 million, which is the second-biggest theatrical debut for 2021, falling right behind “Black Widow” at $80.3 million.  It’s also worth mentioning that unlike “Black Widow”“Shang-Chi” has an exclusive 45-day theatrical release, so you won’t be able to catch it on Disney+ Premiere Access just yet.

Star Simu Liu had this to say about Marvel’s first Asian superhero movie, “I’ve said before that this film will change the world.  A smile where there wasn’t one before.  Pride where there was shame.  Compassion where there was ignorance.  If we reach out and touch even one person, then aren’t all of our lives better for it?”  (You can read his full post here.)
