While James Wan’s Malignant crashes surprisingly.
If he struggles a little in France, Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings continues to be a hit at the US Box Office. Across the Atlantic, the last Marvel once again garnered $ 35.7 million this weekend. A very good score for a second week in September, which allows Shang-Chi to approach already the 150 million dollars of receipts in the United States. In total, it’s almost $ 260 million for the Asian MCU hero at the Global Box Office.
Shang-Chi a hit, but Malignant wallows. James Wan’s latest horror film had an unexpected flop. Used to success with franchises Conjuring Where Insidious, he did not have the same success with Malignant, which, despite good reviews, is content with a third place (behind Free Guy) for its launch at the US Box Office, with only $ 5.57 million in revenue, in a vast park of 3,485 theaters. Note that the film was also available simultaneously on the HBO Max platform from Warner Bros., which may explain this low score.
