Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings is officially a hit with critics and with audiences. The latest Marvel movie brought in over $94 million at the box office in four days and setting a new Labor Day record. It's also the second-biggest opening of the pandemic and seems to have given some studios hope that maybe the fall won't be as bad as it probably will be. At least that's how it looks with Venom: Let There Be Carnage which was delayed three weeks and then moved up two weeks in light of the box office numbers coming out pretty good. It's still unclear what the definition of a "success" truly is in the COVID times, but this movie's audience and critical ratings are going to go a long way. Two of the breakout characters, a redeemed in the eyes of certain subsets of the fandom Trevor Slattery played by Ben Kingsley and faceless creature Morris got their own character posters. Morris is a king, and we don't deserve him, and I want a plush one.
