Shang-Chi Exceeds Expectations, Tops Box Office With $146 Million Worldwide

The box office has been on shaky ground over the past 18 months or so (for obvious reasons). Be that as it may, Marvel has once again proven the power of its brand in a big way. "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" absolutely shattered the previous record for Labor Day weekend releases, as the big new flick that hit theaters for the holiday. While many questions remain in the near future, to quote Bruce Banner, I see this as an absolute win.According to Box Office Mojo, "Shang-Chi," which...

California Supreme Court Upholds Death Penalty Rules

SACRAMENTO (AP) – California’s top court rejected an attempt to make it harder to impose the death penalty, ruling Thursday in favor of the current system where jurors need not unanimously agree on aggravating factors used to justify the punishment.

Meng'er Zhang doesn't want her "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" character to be seen as that "rebellious Asian girl." You know the type: the one with the blunt bangs and the blue streak in her hair to show that she's not like other girls — she dyes her hair and she (usually) has amazing martial arts skills and/or hacking skills! It's a trope that started off in animation and gradually became the visual cue for the "Asian rebel girl" that you would see in films like "Pacific Rim" or "S...

This isn’t an instantly recognizable hero like Captain America, or one loaded with cultural pride like Black Panther. Shang-Chi‘s history is much knottier and more complicated. The character of Shang-Chi emerged out of the ’70s Brucesploitation craze — the phenomenon that followed the death of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Comic book...
