September belongs Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings en The Marvel release holds fourth place in the box office for the fourth weekend in a row.
Shang-Chi brought in $ 13.3 million over the weekend and had a very modest drop of 39% from last weekend. With a current domestic total of $ 196.5 million, Shang-Chi is officially the film of the year with the biggest revenue at the domestic box office, and it will be the first film of the pandemic to hit $ 200 million domestically in a few days. Globally, in 44 international markets, Shang-Chi brought in $ 14 million, bringing the total worldwide to $ 363.4 million.
Debuting in second place is Dear Evan Hansen with a gross of 7.5 million. Despite getting a decent start with $ 800,000 in previews Thursday night, the musical adaptation could not sustain this momentum for the entire weekend. Dear Evan Hansen, tracks to open in the $ 10 million range, so it’s pretty worrying to get far below that. The good news for Dear Evan Hansen is that the film only cost $ 27 million to make, so it will not be a big loss for Universal, but the bad news is that it is very doubtful that the film will come close to matching its budget on the state side when it is all said and done.
In third place we find Free guy with a gross of $ 4.1 million, only 19% lower than the previous weekend. Free guy continues to be one of the highlights of this summer’s box office, as the film is a huge win for original IP. The release, led by Ryan Reynolds, has so far drawn $ 114.1 million into the domestic box office, and the film also continues to shine internationally with a running global total of $ 317.4 million.
such man holds well in fourth place with a gross of $ 2.5 million. It’s a 29% drop, and it’s interesting that with the weekend’s decline and drop from last weekend, the film has seen its best teams in the box office, even though the film is available on PVOD. To date, such man has raised $ 56.8 million in the domestic market, bringing its total global value to $ 73 million. All on a very slim budget of $ 25 million.
Rounding off the top five is Crying Macho with a gross of 2.1 million. That’s a sharp drop of 52%, which shows that the target demographic just doesn’t come out for Clint Eastwood’s latest film. Cry Macho’s performance on HBO Max is also not as strong per. Samba TV, so this could just be the case that moviegoers just weren’t that interested in what Eastwood had to offer this time.
In the sixth we have Jungle Cruise with a gross of 1.7 million. The film is about to close its box office, but it still experienced only a modest drop of 17% from last weekend. The Disney movie brings its domestic amount to $ 114.8 million to date, which is solid when it came in this weekend with a total of $ 206.5 million.
Falling to seventh place is Malignant with a gross of $ 1.5 million. That’s a 45% drop, which is decent for the horror genre, but the bad news here is Malignant cost $ 40 million to make reportedly, and it has only managed to gross $ 12.2 million in the domestic market. I still think the film will achieve cult status at some point, but for now, it has to settle for being one of the losers of this summer’s box office.
Dipping to eighth place is Copshop with a gross of 1.2 million. The film dropped 45% from last weekend, which is not bad, but considering it had such a soft opening last weekend, the result here is not so good. Despite solid critical reviews, Copshop has only managed to gross $ 4.4 million to date, but like Malignant, I think cult classic status is in its future.
Hanging in there in the top ten is Paw Patrol with a ninth place finish of $ 1.1 million. Down by 35%, Paw Patrol has raised $ 38.7 million to date, and I imagine Paramount is pleased with its performance in the box office, as it is also available to stream on Paramount +.
Rounding off the top ten is Love story with a gross of $ 893,765. The film debuted in 300 theaters and continues to show how Indian-Telugu language films continue to draw audiences during the pandemic. According to “Deadline”, the film had its best numbers in New York City, Dallas, San Francisco, DC and Atlanta.
In global box office news, Dune brought in $ 26.3 million from 32 overseas markets in its second weekend. That’s a modest drop of 32% as it brings its international gross to $ 76.5 million. The next overseas release will be in mid-October, with 9 markets opening including Japan on October 15th.
