As expected, Shazam! was the number one film at the box office last weekend. In fact, it exceeded everyone’s expectations grossing over $56.8 million for a $159 million worldwide haul.
With the superhero film starring Zachary Levi and Mark Strong reaching key benchmarks, it looks like WB wants to keep that momentum going by bringing back the film’s first writer Henry Gayden. Additionally, director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran are both likely to return as well. More on the report below.
Warner Bros. Pictures released a short new trailer for the latest DC Films title Shazam! last night. Or maybe it’s a long TV spot. They don’t really specify what exactly it is.
The new preview is longer than the usual 15 to 30-second TV spot at just under a minute in length, but shorter than most trailers. But this is Shazam! we’re talking about. The teaser trailer we saw back in July was longer than most official trailers at nearly three minutes. So this one is doing its own thing at this point, and we’re just along for the ride.
You can find the video below along with a synopsis.
This isn’t as shocking as getting doused with a cold bucket of water, but Aquaman is getting a sequel. The film is already on track to earn $65 million in its opening weekend. Additionally, positive early reviews have shown that this is the movie to watch this holiday. So it comes as no surprise that a sequel is “in development.” More on the report below.
A Julie Andrews cameo in Mary Poppins Returns would make a lot of sense since the singer and actress was the star of the original film. However, Andrews confirmed that she would not appear in the follow-up starring Emily Blunt as to not take away her spotlight. So Andrews has settled for a different kind of role. A very unlikely one. According to a new report, Andrews will be lending her voice talents to James Wan‘s Aquaman. More on the report below.
