Standing on its own: “Shang-Chi” has become the first movie in the pandemic era to make $400 million without the help of the Chinese market, ScreenRant reported.
- This is unlike movies such as “Godzilla v.s. Kong” and “Fast & Furious 9,” which made $188 million and $203 million, respectively, at the Chinese box office.
- The Chinese government reportedly pulled “Shang-Chi” from its list of upcoming films after Simu Liu made negative comments about his family’s life in the mainland.
