April 12-14 Box Office Report

Another weekend has gone by, and Shazam! continues to hold fast to its spot at the top of the box office.  Everyone else fell behind by a mile!

This was an interesting weekend at the box office.  In the top five positions there were three movies that are reboots of previously made movies, and one movie based on an already excising comic book IP.  Meaning that Little, which came in second place, was the only movie based on an original idea that made it into the top five box office positions.

Two films made their opening weekend debut this past weekend, yet failed to make it into the number one spot – Little, which made $15 million and Hellboy, making only $12 Million.  The returns for both of these films is below what outlets were predicting and below what the studios wanted  Is this due to bad marketing?  Probably not.  Many, including myself, are speculating that their lack of box office success is due to the looming shadow that the upcoming Avengers: Endgame has been casting over the month of April.  Many movie going audience members are saving their pennies so they can spend it on the newest Avengers film.

The New ‘Pet Sematary’ Is Shocking

The film also stars Amy SeimetsJeté Laurence and Hugo Lucas Lavoie.

Creepy First Trailer For Pet Sematary!

The first, very creepy, trailer for Stephen King‘s Pet Sematary was dropped today and shows that a new fresh cinematic reimagining of the beloved book and thirty year old movie is just what we need.

This remake stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, and John Lithgow and is directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer.  The first iteration of this movie that came out about 30 years ago to mild success.  Ask anybody who has seen the movie and they will tell you about how creepy it is.  This trailer shows that they are aiming to capture the same magic as the original, and push the envelope even farther.

Pet Sematary will be in theaters next year on April 5th, and I can not wait.
