Box Office Report For April 12-14


Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each and every Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, our newest hero du jour in Shazam! fights to retain the crown, while newcomers like Hellboy and Little hope for an upset How did the two new offerings do, along with the prior champion? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Flying high up to the top spot once again this weekend, Shazam!, which continued to please crowds, to the tune of another $25.1 million. Though the drop was around 50%, that still puts this one close to $100 million domestically. DC and Warner Bros. certainly has a new star character to play around with in the years to come.

Coming in at number two, behind the comic book flick, which reigned supreme, was the comedy Little. Though it only made $15.4 million, it was not expected to come in second place, so this was a pleasant surprise for Universal, all things considered…

The number three position went to the latest version of Hellboy, which disappointed heavily with only $12 million. Rumors of behind the scenes production trouble definitely did not help, but audiences just did not seem interested in a new take on the character, especially without Guillermo del Toro involved.

Only able to open up at number eight and nine, respectively, was After with $6.2 million, as well as the animated Missing Link with $5.8 million. The former more or less met expectations, though the latter probably was hoping for more.

Among indie/smaller debuts, Mary Magdalene opened up on 62 screens and took in just about 62K, Teen Spirit hit on just four screens and made around 44K, while Her Smell, Long Days Journey Into Night, and Wild Nights with Emily each debuted on a trio of screens. Their hauls were 39K, 27K, and 33K, respectively…
