The latest episode of VFX Artists React from Corridor Crew explores the challenges of the Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings bus fight scene. Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin’s titular character spent two decades awaiting a solo film as numerous directors and studios were attached until Marvel Studios elected to develop it for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film stars Simu Liu as Xu Shang-Chi as he is forced to confront his past with the reemergence of the clandestine Ten Rings organization, headed by his father Xu Wenwu, also known to some as The Mandarin.
Liu was joined in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings by Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang Xu Xialing, Tony Leung, Ben Kingsley reprising his Iron Man 3 role, Florian Munteanu, Michelle Yeoh and Benedict Wong. The MCU film became a smash hit upon release, scoring high acclaim from critics and netting the highest audience score on Rotten Tomatoes for the franchise with a 98 percent approval rating. It also has set numerous box office records in just a month of release, becoming the largest Labor Day opening weekend with over $94 million grossed and the first film of the pandemic era to cross the $200 million domestic box office milestone.
