SHAZAM! Currently Looking To Strike $40 Million Opening Weekend At The Domestic Box Office

The latest box office tracking for Warner Bros.' Shazam! movie indicates a respectable $40 million opening weekend in The US for The Big Red Cheese's first big-screen adventure. More past the jump...

Shazam! is set to fly into theaters on April 5, and the David F. Sandberg-directed DC superhero flick is currently looking at a domestic opening weekend haul of $40 million.

While that may not seem like a particularly strong opening for a superhero blockbuster, it's a respectable bow for a character that won't be very familiar to newer fans and even less so to general audiences. Plus, early word on the movie is extremely positive which should eventually give those numbers a decent boost once the reviews hit.

Regardless of how Shazam! winds up performing, it's clear that the studio is very confident in its quality, as it was recently announced that paid Fandango previews are being held two weeks before its release on March 23.

In other box office news, Disney’s Dumbo (March 28) looks set to take in between $58M and $75M, while Paramount's Pet Sematary remake (April 4) could rake in around $30M.
