On April 5, DC Films brought Shazam! into the foray of the DCEU. The non-fiction film, which was 46 years in the making, captures the Queen of Soul as she records her wildly successful album in a Baptist church. Males accounted for 57% of opening weekend audiences, while 45% of crowds were under the age of 25. Internationally, the film delivered an estimated $39.6 million, bringing its worldwide total to over $214 million. The Best of Enemies, $4.5 million 7. Aquaman also did well with $67.8 million during its opening week. Predictions originally were hovering just at $50 million or a few points below. Both films have gone to make over $1 billion worldwide each at the box office. Pet Sematary took in an additional $17.3 million overseas.
The magic word at the box office this weekend was "Shazam!".
"Shazam!" also stars Jack Dylan Grazer ("IT") as Billy's best friend and ultimate superhero enthusiast, Freddy, part of the foster family that includes Mary, played by Grace Fulton ("Annabelle: Creation"); Darla, played by Faithe Herman (TV's "This is Us"); Eugene, played by Ian Chen (TV's "Fresh Off the Boat"); and Pedro, played by Jovan Armand (TV's "Hawaii Five-O").
The superhero adventure "Shazam!" is the No. 1 movie in North America, earning $53.5 million in receipts this weekend, BoxOfficeMojo.com announced Sunday. Older moviegoers aren't generally a demographic that rushes out to see a movie on opening weekend, so the studio anticipates that word-of-mouth about the feel-good drama will grow in the coming weeks, leading to a long life in theaters. Keep in mind the film is not available in all other countries, especially Japan. (It was originally estimated to cost between $90 million to $100 million.) If you were to add ticket sales from the advance screening, the opening total would be $56.7 million.
With over 4,000 theaters who knows how it will do the next weekend. Ranking aside, the film has a $85 million budget, therefore this movie appears fine at turning a profit for Warner Bros. The other films like Little or Missing Link hardly have any traction for us to fear for Shazam falling to the No. 2 spot.
