It also cost 40-50 million less. Lets break some numbers down. Ant-Man cost $130 million. Shazam cost $80-90 million.

Ant-Man OS numbers minus China is 234 million. Shazam will finish on this less or take.

 

Yeah with a lower budget Shazam is Ant-Man numbers.

why are you removing the China money....? 

sorry but Shazam is not doing as well as ant-man. you're in denial.

Deadpool was a phenomenon, it isn't in the same league as an Ant-Man or Shazam (or even D2). Given its budget, the best comparison is It - not any other (recent) CBM.

No you are the one in denial here . Shazam cost less. Ant-Man is on $519 million WW without China its on $414. Shazam will make $60-65 million less there. Ant-Man was in theters during the summer where everyone has more time. Shazam is in theaters in normal school and work days. Shazam is doing just as good as Ant-Man.

oh, duh, how could we forget Paranormal Activity. It grossed 13,000 x production budget. 

 

that other film is The Stewardesses btw. According to Wikipedia, it cost $100k, and grossed $25million. so 250x budget, not 500x, my bad.

What a ridiculous excuse. Movies have different release dates, yes that's how this business works. So because people don't want to take the time to go and watch Shazam!, it's actually making more money? 🤣

Reading here and stopping comparisons, age questionings, ....?

One of the most successful low-budget films was 1999's The Blair Witch Project. It had a budget of around US$60,000 but grossed almost $249 million worldwide. It spawned books, a trilogy of video games, and a less-popular sequel. Possibly an even more successful low-budget film was the 1972 film Deep Throat which cost only $22,500 to produce, yet was rumored to have grossed over $600 million, though this figure is often disputed.[4]

The Chinese market has changed so much in the last 4 years that Shazam underperforming ant man that much is significantly more worrying than you think it is.

No it hasn't. Superhero films are one thing that have not experienced much growth over the last few years in China. They usually gross around $100 million range, that was the case in 2015 and still the case today. that is the ones which don't break out.
