After several release date changes, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings finally arrives in theaters this weekend. The MCU Phase Four film starring Simu Liu launches in 4,300 locations across North America and holds a 45-day theatrical window before landing on Disney+. Free Guy, which has been playing in the most theaters since its release three weeks ago drops to second this week, from 3,940 down to 3,885 locations. The sci-fi/action film has scored just north of $82m domestically and over $180m worldwide. Last week’s box office topper, Candyman earned $22m last weekend in its debut and will keep its 3,569 location count as it enters its second week. Rounding out the top five this week is Jungle Cruise—which drops to 3,075 theaters this week—and PAW Patrol: The Movie begins its third week by playing in 3,004 locations.

The narrative feature starring Riz Ahmed as British Pakistani rapper who, on the cusp of his first world tour, is struck down by an illness that forces him to face his past, his family, and the uncertainty of his legacy, debuts in 13 theaters.
Looking ahead to next week we see the launch of three wide releases. Warner Bros.’ Malignant, Queenpins, from STX Entertainment, and Sony Pictures’ faith-based feature, Show Me the Father. The latter will release in an estimated 1,000 locations…
