About this Event
Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who must confront the legacy of the mysterious Ten Rings criminal organization, headed by his estranged father Wenwu (Tony Leung). Accompanied by his best friend and karaoke buddy Katy (Awkwafina), Shang-Chi returns to China to reunite with his dysfunctional family and ultimately face his father, transforming overnight from San Francisco hotel valet to superpowered hero. Combining wuxia fantasy and martial arts choreography, Shang-Chi offers a thrilling introduction to Marvel Studios’ first Asian leading actor. In a heartfelt post on Instagram, Simu Liu acknowledged the film’s cultural impact, thanking director Destin Daniel Cretton: “The sun rose today to a world where Asian superheroes exist as the leads of their story.” The film also stars Michelle Yeoh, Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, and Ronny Chieng.
Co-writer/director Destin Daniel Cretton will join Pollock Theater Director Matt Ryan for a virtual conversation about this groundbreaking film. This event will not include a screening. Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings may be viewed in theaters and will be available for streaming Disney Plus starting November 12, 2021.
