It's been a damn while since we've had two big releases one weekend, and we start off with WB's latest DC movie 'Shazam!', which started off its release with $6M on Thursday night, and is expected to make $45M-$55M this weekend in 4,217 locations in the U.S./Canada (on a $100M budget - surprisingly low for a superhero movie).
Right behind it is the newest film adaptation of Stephen King's 'Pet Sematary', which made $2.3M on Thursday and is expected to make at least $20M this weekend at 3,585 sites (on a $21M budget).
The third movie out with a decent number of Thursday preview screenings was some racist mess called 'The Best of Enemies' starring Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell, which made $265,000 on Thursday, and is expected to make $6M-$12M from 1,440 screens (on a $10M budget).
Also out this weekend in limited release is Claire Denis's 'High Life', the Aretha Franklin doc 'Amazing Grace', the awful British drama 'Peterloo',
