Horror Film 'THE LODGE' Trailer Starring Riley Keough & Alicia Silverstone

Shazam! Wins The Box Office

In another win for the re-envisioned DC movie universe (albeit perhaps not on the level of Aquaman just yet), Shazam! arrived top of the Stateside box office charts. The light-hearted hero tale took in $53.4 million for the three-day weekend, according to studio estimates.

Adding in the money from the previous weekend's preview screenings, the new Warner Bros./New Line release is at $56.7 million domestically, a healthy start for a film that cost less to make (around $100 million before marketing costs) than it's recent DC stablemate. Outside the US, the movie made $102 million, resulting in a worldwide total to date of $158.7 million. The biggest challenge ahead for the movie is how much it can in before a little film called Avengers: Endgame arrives to dominate.

Also arriving (or should that be resurrecting?) in the charts was horror remake Pet Sematary, the Stephen King adaptation making $25 million for a solid second place start. Last week's champ, Dumbo, was pushed to third, where it added $18.2 million. Us saw a slight drop thanks to new horror competition, but still only slipped to fourth on $13.8 million. Captain Marvel, five weeks into its release, fell to fifth from third, yet still brought in $12.6 million even with a new costumed character drawing a similar audience.

Sixth place went to based-on-truth tale of racism and redemption The Best Of Enemies with $4.5 million, while Five Feet Apart dropped to seventh on $3.7 million. Unplanned slipped to eighth, earning $3.2 million, while Wonder Park took in $2 million at ninth. Finally, at 10th, we find How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, likely preparing to leave the top 10 with $1.9 million this weekend and a current US take of $129 million.

Ruben Fleischer To Direct Uncharted

Here we go again... The seemingly poisoned chalice that is the directing assignment on Sony's adaptation of the Uncharted is now likely to end up in the hands of Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer, who has landed at the top of the studio's wishlist.

The Uncharted series, should you be unaware, is a globe-trotting, loot-hunting set of Playstation games, blending Indiana Jones-style adventuring with several parts Tomb Raider and just a dash of National Treasure. Its hero is Nathan Drake (voiced by Nolan North), who undertakes action-packed trips to the likes of El Dorado, Shambala and the Iram of the Pillars, quipping many a quip and shooting many a henchman along the way.

A film based on the game has become a revolving door of filmmakers and actors, with Bumblebee's Travis Knight the most recent director to vacate the seat as the studio aims to have the movie shooting before current star Tom Holland swings off to appear in the next Spider-Man film later this year.
