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.

Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in THE CURRENT WAR, the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules.
