Yeah they've definitely given themselves a hard time with the release window... maybe a delay would have worked in their favour, push it back to the summer holidays or something when the kids are off school, since it definitely seems like something parents would take their kids to see.

Either way I'm just really looking forward to watching it, but as you've said yourself, I'm not seeing the hype either...

Yeah, I kind of agree with you, especially when it comes to Endgame.  I think they have given themselves basically 3 weeks to do well at the box office.  That is going to be most of their cash, but Endgame is going to cut off the tail-end they would normally get. 

I actually think they will do well against Dumbo though.  I predict Shazam beating Dumbo at the box office.

Dumbo isn't direct competition also its not really off to a hot start especially since it had a $175 million production budget.  If the reboot of Hellboy turn out decent it could hurt Shazam's box office a lot more then Dumbo or Captain Marvel could.



Well it looks like I was right about Dumbo its off to a slow start.



Just can’t get behind Shazam! I don’t think there’s a hero I dislike more.

Saw this movie over the weekend and I was blown away. I didn't expect it to be so good. If you like movies, go see it. My favorite character was the crippled kid. My least favorite character was the douchebag kid (Carson MacCormac). I hope that actor doesn't get typecast for the rest of his life.



I saw this movie and honestly didn't find it to be all that great as the reviews are saying it out to be. Personally it was fun and entertaining enough but I'd advise to just wait for it to be on Netflix or something. Worth watching, but not in theaters.



I absolutely loved it! Especially in comparison with the garbage that both Marvel and DC were presenting to us for the last 2 years.



Eat, bark, love.

I thought it was great. Just a fun film and certainly the best DC film made is years. It got the right ideas behind the character instead of some generic superhero film. Best Captain Marvel film this year easily.



Hmm, pie.

I knew very little about Shazam going into this, but I really loved it. Makes me want to go watch Big again.
