BOX OFFICE: “Shang Chi” makes “Cry Macho” cry for mercy, shuts down “Copshop”

There’s not much doing any business these days other than the latest money-making marvel from Marvel.

“Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” did another $21.7 million. It’s now over $320 million worldwide and still cleaning up.

“Free Guy” has been the comedy sensation of the summer, high concept and effects packed and video gamer friendly and all that. It managed another $5.1 million. Over $108 million as of tonight.

Clint Eastwood’s funereal and dull “Cry Macho” wasn’t a complete bust. It finished second and earned just under $5 million on a boatload of screens. His audience has aged out of cinema-going, so perhaps it did well on HBO Max. But only comic book movies are impacting streamers’ bottom line and subscription numbers. So many not.

“Copshop” cleared $2.3 million, which is less than “Malignant” ($2.68) or “Candyman” ($3.38) which have been out for weeks now.
