Interested to hear more impressions of the movie in the coming days, it shouldn't be that long until reviews hit.

According to rumors the review embargo will be lifted on march 23. But who knows if they lift it even earlier. WB seems very confident that Shazam will receive great reviews and they want to use that to increase the buzz for the movie.

If this is a successful hybrid of BIG and the superhero genre, it could go places in the long run. I don't know about its immediate success, though. I'm gonna wait and see. I like what I see with the clips so far.

I think WB are pretty realistic with Shazam. What they want is great reviews and a solid box office run. They have bigger expectations for the sequel breaking out more. Just like Iron Man started pretty low and then burst out with his sequels. This movie is mostly about the public getting to know an unknown character and creating some expectations for the future movies, as well as doing pretty good at the box office.

Iron Man broke out with his first film, though. I think you mean Captain America/Thor, who started with solid takes and increased over their trilogies.

It broke out in the way that it did well, but not huge numbers by any means.

The only other cbm doing 300+ dom was Spider-Man.

The only other cbm doing 500+ ww besides Spider-Man, unadjusted, is...MIB.

A B-list superhero making over $300 million domestically was a pretty big feat back in 2008.

Yeah,  Iron Man did very well.   Hulk,  Cap and Thor did decent but not great.  Iron Man had a fantastic lead with Downey Jr.  Shazam! has seemingly a very entertaining lead with this..   I don't see it doing over $300M but it should do well enough for a sequel.

I don’t see this doing more than $500m worldwide. 

 

But I don’t think it has to, either.

Iron Man and TDK in 2008 redefined the Comic Book Genre bro lol

I'm excited as hell for this. A superhero movie in the Big mold is right up my alley. 

 

My theater is about to sell tickets and has it currently listed for 4 screens that weekend so tracking must be really strong.

Imagine if this grossed a billion dollars WW. :Venom:

 

 

Well, uncalled box office surprises can happen out of nowhere.

 

Like Aquaman hitting over $1.1B WW & Bohemian Rhapsody nearing $900M+. Those happened.

 

To be conservative & safe...Shazam can gross over $600M+ WW if it connects to an audience.
