The moral of the story is anything remotely family friendly dies with WB. Seriously don’t be surprised if Scoob barely does $100M, or SJ2 and TAJ do TLBM Numbers at best.

SJ2= Space Jam 2?

TAJ= ?

TLBM= The Lego Batman Movie?

But I agree with the broader point that seems like WB struggles with more kid friendly fare. Especially animation wise they haven't been able to gain a major foothold in that market.

Tom and Jerry is TAJ and the other two are correct.

..............................$6.1...............+125%

 

While I see some of your point...ignoring the ups and downs of weekdays, the 2 movies opened similarly (within $1M of each other) and have now posted similar 2nd Friday amounts (and similar true Friday-to-Friday drop values, I think, but I gotta check HTTYD3 preview numbers)...so I won't rule out similar 2nd Saturdays and Sundays til we actually see them:)...I think HTTYD3 is probably a little too high, but I also think all the supers comparisons (like Shazam) are too low:)...

 

EDIT: HTTYD 3 True Friday $14.376M ($3M Thurs Preview) / Pika True Friday $14.8M ($5.7M preview)

Week over week true Friday drops 56% HTTYD3 / 59% Pika

I don’t get how Shazam is being seen as an L, with it’s production budget of $100M, a $360M WW Gross is damn profitable.

No it is not when adding marketing costs.

I hate when people pull up the marketing cost to try and downplay a movie's success. We know you hate DC. Shazam! could have made $800M and you'd have found a way to talk about why it wasn't successful. 

 

Typically when a movie makes 3-4x its budget its seen as a success and will be profitable for the studio. And considering a Shazam! sequel has already been green lit, I'd say WB is happy with the results they got.

And then you add anciliaries and it is. Shazam! is a profitable movie, bottom line.

Shazam! most importantly was a great film. Arguably the best among other DC shared universe films, and I fucking LOVE Aquaman and Wonder Woman, so I don’t say that lightly. I’d agree with anyone that believes that it was released in a bad window tho. It deserved a better release date to shine.

Release date was bad but audience did not care for Shazam. WB did ok job with marketing and let early reviews in. He would be a better fit in a team up movie. If Joker breaks out, I dont see how WB invests in a Shazam sequel, unless they cast another Supes and have him in IM like role in Spidey movie.

 

These days if you have big budget movie not have OS appeal you are in trouble, Shazam did not have that despite good reviews.

 

DC has so many characters who would work in stand alone movies. We need great directors make Flash and Green Lantern.
