Marvel fans are eagerly awaiting the theatrical release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings which is already looking to be Marvel Studios' sleeper hit for this year judging by the generally positive critical response the project has been getting so far. The embargo for the film has already been lifted and apparently, aside from the favorable response it's generating from critics and some of the fans who saw it before its release, Shang-Chi is also performing extremely well on Rotten Tomatoes.
As of writing, Shang-Chi debuted with an impressive rating of 93%. Turns out, 56 reviewers have already given the film a "fresh" rating on the site while four reviews have chosen to given it a "rotten" score. Of course, the film's Rotten Tomatoes score will still change in the coming days especially after its official release so you better keep an eye on that.

Congratulations are already in order for Shang-Chi but with the pandemic situation worsening in other countries, especially the Delta variant already causing concern in some parts of the United States, it'll be interesting to see if the film will be able to live up to its box office potential.
It's worth mentioning that some fans have recently come out to say that they're skipping its theatrical release due to the recent COVID surge and I for one believe that Disney should have made the film available for Premier Access, or at least do that as a backup move in case the box office numbers fail to deliver. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is scheduled to premiere in cinemas on September 3, 2021.
