Long-range box office tracking predicts a $35M–$55 million domestic opening weekend for Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings.

Box office numbers are impossible to predict and gather success or failure at the moment. As the COVID-19 Delta variant spreads, some studios are starting to delay their films once again. Others are using streaming as an alternative distribution method. However, Disney is still looking to release Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings exclusively to theaters next month.

With Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings nearing its release date, Box Office Pro projects that the Marvel Studios film will have a $35-$55 million opening weekend in the states. In comparison, Black Widow grossed $80 million at the domestic box office in its opening weekend. That film also saw a release on Disney Plus with Premier Access and earned $60 million. If Shang-Chi grosses what it’s projected, it would put it on par with the first Ant-Man film, which opened to $57.2 million.

Here is the synopsis for Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings:

“Simu Liu stars as Shang-Chi in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings. Shang-Chi must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.”

Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton from a script written by David Callaham, the Marvel film stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Ronny Chieng, and Dallas Liu. The upcoming movie will hit theaters on September 3, 2021.
