SHAZAM!'s Opening Weekend Box Office Projections Rise Following Extremely Positive Reviews

Warner Bros. hasn't exactly been giving Shazam! the marketing push it deserves this week but those overwhelmingly positive reviews have sent weekend box office projections through the roof a little higher.

This week has been so dominated by Avengers: Endgame, it feels like Warner Bros. has simply forgotten to remind fans that Shazam! is in theaters on Friday. We've seen no new TV spots, character posters, or stills popping up online, but things are thankfully looking good for the DC Comics adaptation. 

With overwhelmingly positive reviews and  buzz online after those fan screenings, the latest box office projections for the movie's opening weekend in North America have increased from around $40 million to as high as $55 million. This is still below Aquaman's $67.8 million, but a solid result for a release featuring a character unfamiliar to most moviegoers. 

While you may not think this sounds particularly good, bear in mind that Shazam! only cost Warner Bros. between $80 million - $100 million to make and so it doesn't need to hit anywhere near $1 billion to turn a profit!

Zachary Levi has a devoted fanbase in China, too, and with it receiving a day and date release there, things are definitely looking good for the Big Red Cheese's chances of box office success.

We'll be sure to keep you guys updated but keeping checking back here for the latest.
