‘Dear Evan Hansen’ opens 2nd to ‘Shang-chi’ at box office


NEW YORK » “Dear Evan Hansen” may have been a hit on Broadway, but the filmed adaptation of the Tony-winning show is off to a slow start at the box office in its first weekend in theaters. The Universal musical that’s playing exclusivel­y in theaters grossed an estimated $7.5 million from 3,364 locations, according to studio estimates on Sunday.

First place again went to Disney and Marvel’s “Shang-chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” which added $13.3 million in ticket sales in North America, bringing its domestic total to $196.5 million. The superhero pic has topped the charts for four consecutiv­e weekends and last weekend surpassed “Black Widow” to become the highest domestic earner of the pandemic.
