Shang-Chi Surpasses Black Widow To Become Highest-Grossing Movie During Pandemic Era

Internationally, it's a different story, with Black Widow ($378.4 million) pacing ahead of Shang-Chi ($363.4 million).

This release strategy surely impacted box office results one way or the other for Black Widow (and it's also led to a messy lawsuit between Scarlett Johnasson and Disney).Continue Reading at GameSpot
