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.
DaniElle DeLaite sat down with the novel’s author Anna Todd, actors Josephine Langford (Tessa Young), Hero Fiennes Tiffin (Hardin Scott) and the film’s director Jenny Gage to talk about the journey of bringing the story to the big screen.

DaniElle also had the chance to sit down with cast members Inanna Sarkis (Molly Samuels), Singer and actress Pia Mia (Tristan), Khadijha Red Thunder (Steph Jones), Shane Paul McGhie (Landon Gibson) to talk about their characters, gender switching, their special places and what love means to them.

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.

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
