Heading off a couple of new entrants—one of them sporting a similarly-fetching shade of red—DC’s Shazam! sat comfortably atop weekend box office takings. The school holidays beckon, but so does Avengers: Endgame, so it’ll be interesting to find out what legs it has left. Could Shazam! be another Captain Marvel, still making good money in week 6, and closing in on $6 million? We shall see.
