AceShowbiz – “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” fails to soar on its domestic debut. The superhero movie opens to a disappointing $30 million from 4,071 theaters despite stealing the thunder from last week’s champion “Scream VI“, according to studio estimates on Sunday, March 19.
The “Shazam!” sequel fell short of its modest expectations, which were in the $35-$40 million range for its first weekend. It’s a substantial drop from the first movie, which opened to $53.5 million in 2019.
