NEW YORK (AP) — “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is the top film at the box office for the third straight weekend, but the muted reception for Clint Eastwood’s “Cry Macho” suggests older moviegoers still aren’t as eager to return to theaters.

According to studio estimates Sunday, Marvel’s “Chang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, collected an estimated $21.7 million in ticket sales over the weekend.

Eastwood's “Cry Macho” opened modestly with an estimated $4.5 million in ticket sales. The movie debuted simultaneously on HBO Max.
