Disney has announced that all remaining Disney films, including Marvel’s “Eternal Race”, in 2021 will be shown only in theaters. They will not be available on Disney+.
New York The United States released estimates on Sunday that “Shangzhi” and “Legend of the Ten Rings,” still topped the box office list for the second weekend of North American theaters. They had a total box office revenue of $35.8 million dollars.
This sum is sufficient to bring home the second highest box office for any movie during the pandemic. It surpasses the previous Marvel movie, “Black Widow”. This year, relatively few movies have been able to maintain their popularity in theaters, either because they have been broadcast at home or because the audience’s attention is fading.
“Shangqi” was not shown in theaters. The second week’s decline was 53%. This was quite modest. The global box-office revenue for “Shangqi” was $247.6million within just two weeks. The first Marvel movie “Shangzhi”, which starred an Asian superhero (played here by Liu Simu), may be the most successful movie in North America this summer. Their path isn’t very secure on a global scale. “Shangzhi”, currently in China, has no release date. Universal Pictures’ sequel “Fast and Furious”, “F9”, earned more international box office revenue than any other edition with $714 million.
“Historic” was released on Labor Day weekend in America, amid the coronavirus crisis. It earned a total box-office of 90 million U.S. Dollars, which was considered a positive sign for the sector. Disney announced Friday that all its remaining films for 2021, including Marvel’s “Eternal Race”, were to be released only in theaters. The film will not be released simultaneously on Disney+. This was how “Black Widow” came out, and it triggered a lawsuit against Scarlett Johansson.
Warner Bros. directed the horror-thriller “Marino”, which is the largest-scale movie of “Historic.” It was released in North America at a cost of US$5.6million. The overseas box office was US$6,000. US$3,000,000 was distributed in all 69 markets. HBO Max subscribers also got “Maligno” as a premiere.
Disney finished second due to “Maligno’s” weak debut. Disney’s 20th Century Studios’ Ryan Reynolds action comedy “Freeman” earned US$5.8 million in box office sales in the fifth week of its release, bringing its total local box office to US$101.5 million. It has raised $276 millions worldwide.
