SHAZAM! Early Box-Office Projections Indicate A Decent $48 Million+ Opening Weekend

In the wake of the monumental success of DC’s Aquaman last year, Shazam! is likely to do respectable numbers at the box office when it flies into theaters in April. Hit the jump for more details...

The initial opening weekend forecasts for Shazam! indicate that the DC film could make upwards of $48 million over the course of its debut weekend, according to Pro Box Office. The numbers have gone slightly up as the release date draws near, as the estimate a few weeks ago was $40 million.

This may just be a conservative prediction, as some believe the film could possibly break $60 million or more during opening weekend.

Shazam! also has to contend with the fact that it is placed in the middle of two of the biggest comic book movie releases of the year; Captain Marvel and fervently-anticipated Avengers: Endgame. The former is already estimated to open at a whopping $160 Million, but Shazam will be coming an entire month after the Marvel Studios effort and will really only face competition from the new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic, Pet Sematery.

It is likely the DC film will win the weekend and do decent numbers in the coming weeks until Avengers: Endgame, which will almost certainly dominate the box office and break all sorts of records.

Shazam!, directed by David Sandberg and starring Zachary Levi, is set to land in theaters on April 5th, 2019.
