    'Shazam!' Officially Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes

    By KOFI OUTLAW - April 5, 2019 02:14 pm

    DC's Shazam! is now in theaters, and as moviegoers contemplate if/how to spend their money at the box office this weekend, they'll no doubt be swayed by the official word from Rotten Tomatoes. At the time of writing this, Shazam! is sitting pretty with a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, with 192 reviews having been tallied for the review score.

    Check out the official announcement by Rotten Tomatoes:

    Shazam! has generally been met with enthusiastic responses from both critics and moviegoers, alike. The film's "Big meets Superman" concept has appeal for both kids and adults, and director David F. Sandberg seems to have infused the film with the kind of lighthearted sense of comic book fun and adventure that a lot of fans of the genre thought was missing from earlier DC Extended Universe releases like Man of Steel or Batman v Superman.

    Comicbook.com's Brandon Davis was extremely enthusiastic about the film in his own Shazam! review, stating:

    "All things considered, Shazam! shapes up to be the best movie based on a DC Comics character since The Dark Knight changed the comic book movie game in 2008. Christopher Nolan's film probably still holds the torch for best film in the genre given its ability to transcend the comic book movie world and become a psychological thriller, above all else, but Shazam! certainly gives the film a run for its money. It's the sheer levels of fun, heart, and terror Shazam! masterfully balances which make it a lightning bolt of joy... By the time Shazam! comes to an end, moviegoers will definitely know this hero’s name and be eager to hear it shouted many more times. This might just be the most fun audiences have at the movies this year, and it’s proof that DC has another major winner on its hands. Shazam! is, quite simply, lightning in a bottle."

    You can watch Brandon's full Shazam! review above!

    Shazam is now in theaters; Joker arrives on October 4, Birds of Prey on February 7, 2020, Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020, and The Batman on June 25, 2021.

    Film's good. Too bad a lot of people has the pre-conception that this is either too kiddish. or be too much like other DCEU movies that came before (minus Aquaman and Wonder Woman).

    ‘Shazam!’ debuts with $53.5M, handing DC Comics another win

    Associated Press / 07:52 AM April 08, 2019

    NEW YORK  – Seven films in, the DC Extended Universe is finally flying with some wind behind its back.

    The well-reviewed, relatively modestly budgeted “Shazam!” debuted with $53.5 million in ticket sales over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday, handing DC its latest critical and box-office success.

    Though one of the oldest characters in DC’s superhero stable, “Shazam!” doesn’t boast the name-recognition of Batman or Superman.

    But by scaling back to a $100 million budget and going for the lighter, comic tone, “Shazam!” steadily built up its word of mouth with stellar reviews.

    Warner Bros. also showed the film nationwide two weeks before opening, where it made $3 million in advance screenings.

    “Shazam!” came out well ahead of the weekend’s other top draw, “Pet Sematary.”

    Paramount Pictures’ remake of the original 1989 Stephen King adaptation opened in a distant second with $25 million.

    It’s a solid start for “Pet Sematary,” though far from the haul that the last big-screen adaptation of King’s conjured up: “It” opened with $123.4 million in 2017.

    Last week’s top film, “Dumbo,” slid steeply in its second week. Landing in third, the Disney live-action remake dropped 60% with $18.2 million.


    Pitched as “‘Big’ meets Superman,'” “Shazam!” stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson, a teenage foster kid who transforms into an adult superhero (played by Zachary Levi).

    Jeff Goldstein, distribution chief at Warner Bros., said the studio originally forecast a $40 million opening. “That was the right number for us,” Goldstein said. “That’s what we needed to make money on it.”

    But expectations grew based on reviews (91% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and audience reaction (an “A” Cinemascore). The PG-13-rated film attracted an especially young crowd; 45% were under 25.

    The result further validated DC’s pivot following the disappointments of Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman” and David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad.”

    Warner Bros. has since steered its comic book adaptions in a different direction, leaning more on stand-alone entries less predicated on the overall “universe” and more fluctuating in tone.

    Following “Wonder Woman” and “Aquaman,” ”Shazam!” makes it three in a row for DC superhero standalones.

    Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.

    1. “Shazam!” $53.4 million ($102 million international).
    2. “Pet Sematary,” $25 million ($17.3 million international).
    3. “Dumbo,” $18.2 million ($39.6 million international).
    4. “Us,” $13.8 million ($10.3 million international).
    5. “Captain Marvel,” $12.7 million ($14.1 million international).
    6. “The Best of Enemies,” $4.5 million.
    7. “Five Feet Apart,” $3.7 million ($4.1 million international).
    8. “Unplanned,” $3.2 million.
    9. “Wonder Park,” $2 million ($3.3 million international).
    10. “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” $2 million. /gsg

    Billy Batson is a serious kid.  Pero nung nagiging Shazam sya nagiging kumedyante.  Parang isa sa mga naging superpower nya ay magpatawa. 😂
