Shang-Chi Still Reigns Supreme
Shang-Chi grossed an additional $21.6 million this weekend. Currently, the film is easily on its way to surpass the $300 million mark worldwide. At the moment, the movie is sitting at $288 million worldwide.
Marvel dominates everything that they touch. Black Widow grossed an impressive amount of money, despite releasing on Disney+ and all the legal issues that came after. Free Guy retained the second spot as it grossed $5 million. While Cry Macho came in third in the box office during the weekend. The Clint Eastwood film grossed an estimated $4.4 million in its opening weekend. However, it’s worth noting that HBO Max is also streaming the film to its subscribers.

The Ghost in the Shell remaster grossed a total of $220,389 in its first weekend. This is impressive given its limited release. While Dune has started its international run. The highly aniticipated sci-fi movie generated $37.9 million in its first weekend. Look for this movie to be released on October 22nd in theaters and on HBO Max.
