I'm still baffled how WB made an Aquaman film make more domestically than most Spider-Man films, and more worldwide than all superhero films sans 5 (soon 6). I think the inflated numbers from that is a big reason this was bound to look like an under-performer.

Even taking out Aquaman the results OS are pretty disappointing. DOM so far looks solid to good.

I disagree.  I think they do it for security reasons to deflate OD crowds

Because a $9m Thur preview showing for Shazam! would be crowd chaos eh?   :lol:

getting the main fans away from everyone else before the movie opens could be a strategy.  maybe the governemnt is trying to separate die-hards from the mass casual and do mass surveillance census profiles through the movies

So, maybe there's a limit to how much money can be made out of obscure superheroes?

Guardians Of The Galaxy says hi.

 

A lot of Marvel comic fans didn't even know who they were.

Is Guardian of Galaxy / Hancock adjusted the absolute worst case scenario limit ?

Very solid $5.9 million instead of $4m and with the added $3.3m it now sits on $9.2 million in previews.

I think WB only pulls these previews for movies they think lacks hype. For the likes of Wonder Woman and Batman previews should not be needed at all due to the hype levels being much bigger.

Cause Aquaman was such a failure due to the Prime screenings, it became one of the biggest solo superhero movies.

Guys, Shazam! has one half, one third or even one fourth the budget of the big funny book movies so it doesn't need to make that big numbers to be considered successful.

 

It s easily the cheapest DC film so ...

Aquaman was definitely not that obscure. He wasn't $1.1 Billion+ popular before his film but definitely more well known than the likes of Shazam, GOTG or Ant-Man

Aquaman was not well known among GA I think, it was the jokes people made out of the character that were famous, no ?

Entourage much ?

That's my point, we have had several obscure superheroes being massive hits in recent years (GotG, Aquaman, Venom etc etc) It has been hit after hit after hit for SH movies, almost regardless of character popularity or reviews. Now, despite the fact that Shazam seems to be getting excellent reviews, the early numbers indicate a relative disappointment. I am pointing out the fact that Shazam seems to be a trend-breaker.

Aquaman and Venom are more well known than Shazam. Most thought Shazam was a movie starring Sinbad. A movie that never existed.

Aquaman's maybe not as big as the DC Trinity or even The Flash, but he was definitely recognized by most normies. My mother knew who he was before the movie came out, and she's never read a comic book or seen many Marvel or DC movies. He's been in a bunch of cartoons, and for years, he was the butt of a lot of jokes and parodies. Even Cartoon Network (which is owned by Warner) made fun of him back in the day.

Marvel really has no problem at all to make unknown superheroes box office hits. When a universe is connected its much easier to sell in these obscure characters with the audiences. Shazam doesn't have that advantage.

Yeah, Aquaman is much more known than Captain Marvel, Shazam, Black Panther and Guardians of the galaxy. 

 

Even Teen Titans made fun of Aqualad.

Outside north america maybe, but he was used for jokes because people would catch the reference.
