This week, another Captain Marvel film premiered on the big screen, this time in the form of DC‘s Shazam. The superhero version of Big was able to earn $53 million in the States and another $102 million in the foreign box office. This is great news for the studio and most of the time horror director David F. Sandberg. The other big premier of the weekend went to Pet Semetery. The Stephen King remake that no one asked for was able to take in $25 million and will likely to go on and earn its money back.
