‘Shazam!’ Laughs Its Way to the Bank (The MovieBabble Podcast Ep. 14)

by Collin Willis

Shazam! opened to a well-earned $150+ million weekend worldwide. The Zachary Levi-helmed movie is a hit with critics and fans alike, bringing much-needed heart into the DCEU.

In other corners of the market, Pet Sematary proves that sometimes rebooted is better, and Dumbo fails to carry the enormous weight of its budget. In other other corners of the market, Us continues to line Jordan Peele’s pockets, and Captain Marvel hits the $1 Billion mark and aims for the MCU top 5 in domestic box office intake.

As for other notes, STX vs A24, what’s the difference? Is The Best of Enemies the new Green Book? How about that Joker trailer? This week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast takes a deep dive into some obscure places. (You’re welcome, internet.)
