Highest Grossing Film in 2021 Likely to be The Battle At Lake Changjin

–Chinese War Film Expected to Earn More at the Box Office Than Each Marvel Film Released in 2021–

The Battle at Lake Changjin is the odds-on favorite to be the highest worldwide grossing film of 2021, according to betting aggregators US-Bookies.com (See Disclaimer Below). Its odds of grossing more than any other film this year are currently 8/15 (65.2% implied probability). 

“In a year where the film industry is trying to bounce back after following the pandemic’s theater closures, the bookies are very high on the Chinese war film earning the most in the box office,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “The Battle at Lake Changjin is currently expected to beat 2021’s Marvel films, which is a tough feat considering that Marvel films have earned this title in the three of the last five years.”   

The Battle at Lake Changjin is followed by Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has 11/4 odds to be the highest grossing film (26.7% implied probability), with Eternals close behind at 4/1 (20%). Shang-Chi & the Legend of the Ten Rings then follows at 19/2 (9.5%). 

“Though Hi, Mom appears to be just behind The Battle at Lake Changjin in worldwide box office earnings so far, it’s much lower on the bookies’ list,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “However, it’s odds of being the highest grossing film give it a stronger chance than the likes of F9, Dune, The Matrix Resurrections, and No Time To Die.”
