SYFY Celebrating Labor Day With All Day ‘Child’s Play’ Marathon!

Ever since the film’s release way back in 2007, Rob Zombie‘s polarizing Halloween remake has reigned supreme over the Labor Day Weekend box office, pulling in $30,591,759 domestically back in 2007. Zombie’s Halloween went on to make $58 million domestically and $80 million worldwide, making it a massive hit that helped kick-start the franchise back to life.

Fourteen years later, Bloody Disgusting extends congratulations to Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which has done something no movie (including Christopher Nolan’s Tenet last year) has been able to do: take the Labor Day crown away from Halloween.

Variety reports that Shang-Chi has debuted at the U.S. box office with $71.4 million as of this writing, expected to rack up an impressive $83.5 million by the end of the 4-day weekend.

That number is nearly triple what Rob Zombie’s Halloween made back in 2007, making the MCU’s Shang-Chi the new reigning champion of the Labor Day Weekend box office.

Interestingly, Michael Myers is headed back to the big screen in just over a month, with sequel Halloween Kills bringing the franchise back to theaters on October 15, 2021. That film is expected to be a box office hit despite the pandemic that has spelt doom for several big screen releases, proving that Michael Myers is as much of a draw here in 2021 as he was in 2007.

Elsewhere on the box office charts this weekend, Nia DaCosta’s Candyman has scared up another $10.5 million so far, bringing the film’s box office total up to $41.9 million domestically.
