    I thought the production budget was around 85 million. I'm surprised at the low expectations for the opening weekend. I would think north of 80 million.

    There's no point in doing more promotion for the movie right now, with Captain Marvel getting all the attention. I expect that promotion will start to ramp up around the middle of March.

    I'm not super surprised at the low prediction given the minimal hype its getting. Still, keeping costs low might be a fiod formula. It doesn't have to make THAT much to justify a sequal.

    You misread Comic Reader Lads post on the previous page the $200 million figure was not the budget but a speculative domestic total.

    Yes, as I said in my earlier post, Shazam's budget was less than $90 million. It is $80-90 million according to Wikipedia.

    I then said that if Shazam can get to $200 million in domestic box office, then it will have definitely made back its production budget and that Warners' share of the foreign grosses would take care of other expenses and leaving plenty of profit.

    It seems that with Shazam and the Joker, Warners is trying out midpriced movies to reduce risk since the DC brand is polarizing. Once DC Films gets a string of successive hits that are also more widely loved by the moviegoing audience, we'll see if Warners sticks to sprinkling in lower budgeted movies with the blockbusters. I hope they do. Not everything needs a $200 million budget.

    The Shazam trailer looked at times shot like a horror movie, unsurprisingly.

    It didn't need a huge budget without a Zod sized brawl against Black Adam yet, apparently also being set just in a city.

    .... I haven't read the current incarnation of Sivana, not really. So it's interesting to see this total upgrade. It's pretty much Sivana in name only now compared to the 'classic' version. But hopefully Mark Strong does a good job with it.

    Uh, with the bus crash, for whatever it's worth, I hope nobody was on the bus besides the driver; there could have been a whole lot of injuries there (and, of course, at least one!). sheesh..

    This second trailer finally properly sold me on this. It looks super fun.

    sidebar: I have one of those Batman stand-ups. He doesn't talk, lol. The chest lights up decently if you have a good battery.

    Personally, while I like Mark Strong--and I enjoyed him as Sinestro--I'd rather have had Jackie Earle Haley play Sivana. I think it works better if there's a contrast between the Big Red Cheese and the mad scientist, where one is big and bulit and the other is small and weird.

    It looks very funny. Gives me a Goonies vibe. But this needs some real heart too, and some good action.

    I think it will. Kids are going to love Shazam and his friends.

    Hope that's part of the arc is him learning his actions have consequence. I mean hes a kid and just like Peter in Homecoming sometimes your gonna do the wrong thing and you cant always fix it. Cause yea anyone on that bus is not having a good day. Looks fun I'm still in
