Shazam! Header

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.

SHAZAM! Header Image

Shazam!
Director: David F. Sandberg
Writer: Henry Gayden
Cast: Asher Angel, Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 132
Release Date: April 5, 2019

The DCEU isn’t the dark and brooding cinematic superhero universe that you first knew when it was launched way back in 2013. Since then it has gone through a series of improvements that have helped build it to become a much better superhero cinematic universe. And now director David F. Sandberg‘s Shazam! starring Asher Angel and Zachary Levi as Billy Batson and the title character, will continue the momentum that was first started by Wonder Woman and then continued with Aquaman.

See, Wonder Woman has this incredible message about female empowerment, while Aquaman surges by centering on a person accepting the life of coming from two different worlds. Each of these films had their own distinct voice while also being superhero films. As for Shazam!, audiences will see a coming of age superhero film that is not only a great origins story but speaks about the importance of foster families. My full review below.

Shazam! Header Image

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.

If you saw the first unofficial image of Zachary Levi filming Shazam! you understand why some fans may have been disappointed by it. The actor will play the superpowered title hero in the upcoming film that is set to hit theaters next year.

 Mark Strong

Things are progressing rather quickly for Shazam! Just days after the film confirmed Zachary Levi to play the title hero, there are reports that Mark Strong is in talks to play the film’s villain. Of course, as some of you know, it’s not going to be Black Adam, as Dwayne Johnson will be playing him in a standalone film.

According to reports, Strong is in talks to play Doctor Sivana, who has had run-ins with Shazam before. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle Creation
Director: David F. Sandberg
Screenwriter: Gary Dauberman
Cast: Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Anthony LaPaglia, Miranda Otto, Samara Lee
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated R | 109 Minutes
Release Date: August 11, 2017

All the possessed portraits, toys, and haunted spirits we’ve seen in James Wan‘s Conjuring films leaves plenty of room for world building. As such spinoffs are released to expand upon that world, though it has been met with mixed results. For one thing, Annabelle: while a commercial success, the spinoff was a critical disappointment. But studios are more concerned with the former, so of course, we’re going to get a continuation of that poorly received spinoff.

But here is the surprising thing about Annabelle: Creation, it’s actually pretty good. Lights Out director David F. Sandberg‘s latest effort uses all the traditional horror tropes that deliver plenty of chills and thrills. But because it uses all those familiar elements, it all suffers from the same pitfalls. Still, it is a prequel spinoff that gets the job done, and really, that’s all you could ask for. Check out my full review below.
