Reading now: 192

The first box office numbers are in for Shazam: Fury of the Gods, and things aren't looking great for the superhero sequel. The movie pulled in $3.4 million in the US from its Thursday night previews, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This was significantly less than the $5.9 million in Thursday night previews than the original Shazam earned in 2019 before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the movie's first weekend, Fury of the Gods is expected to earn between $35 million-$40 million, but even if the film hits the higher figure, it would be below the $53.5 million that the first Shazam earned in the US over its first weekend.

Fury of the Gods is getting generally worse reviews than the first movie. The original boasted a 71 score on GameSpot sister site Metacritic, compared to a 46 for the sequel.
