Shang-Chi And The Legend of the Ten Rings earned well over its anticipated $40million debut with a $71.4million three-day haul on Labor Day weekend.

Shang-Chi's three-day total falls just behind Black Widow’s $80.3 million opening haul, but marks a new era in films released post-pandemic where Labor Day weekend totals are traditionally lower.

The most profitable release during the weekend was the 2007 remake of the classic slasher flick Halloween, which pulled in $30.6 million. 

The MCU flick has also earned $127.6 million in the global market after earning an impressive $25million on its first day of release following $8.8million during Thursday previews.

It went on to be released in various international markets over the past week, where it was made available for screening in locations such as Australia and Russia.

Unlike several other Marvel Cinematic Universe entries, Shang-Chi is currently theater-exclusive, where it will remain for 45 days after its release.
