'Shazam!' #1 for Second Weekend as 'Little' Tops 'Hellboy' to Lead Newcomers

'Shazam!' #1 for Second Weekend as 'Little' Tops 'Hellboy' to Lead Newcomers
After four straight weekends featuring a new #1 film at the weekend box office, Warner Bros.'s Shazam! took the crown for a second weekend in a row, topping a flurry of newcomers that delivered varying returns. Universal's Little secured the runner-up position, out-performing Lionsgate and Summit's Hellboy, which struggled amidst a flurry of negative reviews ahead of release not to mention reports of tension during production. Additionally, United Artists's release of Laika's Missing Link missed expectations and Aviron's After out-performed pre-weekend expectations. At the top of the box office is Shazam!, which delivered an estimated $25.1 million in its second weekend, a drop of -53%, for a domestic cume just shy of $95 million. The film also topped the global box office for a second weekend in a row as it added $35.9 million internationally for an overseas cume that now stands at $163.9 million and a global tally reaching $258.8 million. Universal's Little led all newcomers,

‘Shazam!’ Heads for Another Box Office Victory as ‘Little’ Looks Bigger Than ‘Hellboy’
“Shazam!” is still showing box office power as it heads for a repeat victory in North American, with about $21 million, early estimates showed on Friday.

Universal’s body-swap comedy “Little” is eyeing second place with about $14 million, narrowly topping another newcomer, Lionsgate’s “Hellboy” remake, at around $12 million. The second weekend of “Pet Sematary” and the third frame of “Dumbo” will battle for fourth at about $8 million each. Laika’s animated “Missing Link” and Avrion’s romantic drama “After” are both debuting quietly in the $6 million range.

“Shazam!” will likely have the year’s lowest gross for a domestic box office winner since the third weekend of “Glass” topped the chart during Super Bowl weekend with $9.5 million.

“Shazam!,” starring Zachary Levi as the boyish superhero, is declining about 61% from its opening. The DC Comics tentpole, which carries an $80 million budget, should wind up the frame with more than $90 million domestically in its first 10 days.

'Shazam!' Poised for Second Weekend at #1, Topping 'Hellboy' & 'Little'

'Shazam!' Poised for Second Weekend at #1, Topping 'Hellboy' & 'Little'
This weekend sees four new wide releases hitting theaters, though it will be WB's Shazam! enjoying a second go round as the weekend's number one film. As for the week's new releases, look for Hellboy and Little in what could be a tight race for runner-up position, while Laika's latest, Missing Link, vies for a spot in the top five and Aviron's After settles near the bottom of the top ten. After a solid start last weekend, which saw Shazam! exceed industry expectations, the superhero feature is likely to take a bit of a dive this weekend, though should remain in the top spot barring an over performance from a couple of the weekend's newcomers. We're currently anticipating a -58% dip for a three-day around $22.5 million and a ~$92 million domestic cume by the end of the weekend. Second place could be a tight race between Lionsgate's R-rated adaptation

‘Hellboy’ Battles ‘Shazam!’ at Weekend Box Office

  • Variety
It’s about to get crowded at multiplexes.

That’s because four movies — Lionsgate’s “Hellboy” remake, Universal’s comedy “Little,” Laika’s stop-motion animation “Missing Link” and Aviron’s romantic drama “After” — are all opening nationwide. The quartet of films joins an already packed box office marquee that includes last week’s champ “Shazam!” and Paramount’s horror pic “Pet Sematary.”

Unless one of this weekend’s newcomers becomes a surprise hit, it’s likely that “Shazam!” will repeat No. 1 in North America. The comic-book tentpole debuted with $53 million, along with $102 million overseas. As of Wednesday, it has earned $162 million worldwide, including $59 million at the domestic box office. If “Shazam!” sees holdover similar to other recent superhero origin stories like “Ant-Man,” “Wonder Woman,” and “Captain Marvel,” it could add another $24 to $28 million in its second weekend of release.

Emmys: Guest Performers Must Make the Most of Short TV Stints
Guest stars often find themselves in a challenging position, arriving on a set to shoot just a few scenes and trying to pack a powerful performance into limited screen time. With so many strong dramatic performances on TV today, how do these actors and actresses maximize those moments to pack a punch?

For “This Is Us” guest star Gerald McRaney, who took home the dramatic guest actor Emmy last year and is nominated again this year, the key is in the writing and just trying to “stay out of my own damn way.”

With his Dr. K character appearing in just one episode this season of the NBC family drama (“The Car”), compared to five episodes in the first season, McRaney says, “it can be hard to build a character with just one or two appearances in one or two scenes.” But, he adds, on “This Is Us,” “every scene
