Shang-Chi and the Legends of the 10 Rings fended off competition from newcomer Dear Evan Hansen, a broadway-to-big-screen offering, to hold the No. 1 spot at the box office.

The Marvel film brought in another $13.2 million, a little less than double Dear Evan Hansen's $7.5 million weekend takings. Shang-Chi, which stars Simu Liu as the titular hero, has now grossed around $196 million at the box office, moving it past Black Widow as the top domestic earner at the box office this year.
