UK alsoopened to strong results, generating an estimated £1.2m ($1.5m) on 620 screens, taking the top spot with a 35% share of the Top 5 films.  These results are coming in +4% over Captain America: First Avenger and roughly on par with Ant-Man.  Including previews, the running cume is now £1.3m ($1.7m). 



India released to an estimated INR 35.3m ($511k) on 1,138 screens, ranking as the #1 U.S. Film in the market.  Opening day results are more than double Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy and +19% ahead of Wonder Woman.

Friday Report: Warner Bros. and DC’s Shazam! opened to a strong $5.9 million bow from Thursday night’s early shows, setting the stage for a very healthy weekend ahead.





This follows the $3.325 million earnings from Fandango previews on March 23. The studio is currently rolling the latter amount into Thursday night’s haul, making for an overall $9.225 million entry into Friday — all of which is expected to be counted in the weekend haul.





For the most apt comparisons, we’re looking specifically at the $5.9 million gross from last night’s shows to determine likely trajectories for the weekend. That figure registered:





59.5 percent ahead of Glass ($3.7 million)34 percent behind Aquaman ($9 million excluding all pre-opening night sneaks)69 percent ahead of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ($3.5 million)64 percent ahead of Power Rangers ($3.6 million)8 percent behind Ant-Man ($6.4 million)



Internationally, Shazam! has totaled $15.7 million across 53 markets in two days of release. Those figures exclude $16.4 million flash estimates from China’s opening day on Friday, trailing only Aquaman and Batman v Superman among other WB films.





Other Shazam! international opening highlights from the studio include:





Taking advantage of Wednesday’s Isra Minaj public holiday in the market, Indonesia launched to an estimated IDR 15.9b ($1.1m) from 971 screens, dominating at #1 with a 73% share of the Top 5 films and claiming the 3rd Highest Grossing WB Film Opening Day Ever!  These results are also +10% ahead of Ant-Man and more than double Guardians of the Galaxy.  The 2 day cume is now IDR 31.5b ($2.2m).



Russia debuted to an excellent RMB 62m ($946k) on 3,072 screens with a 57% share of the Top 5 films.  These results are tracking on par with Ant-Man, 22% ahead of Wonder Woman and more than double Captain America: The First Avenger.



Also taking the top spot with a 40% share of the Top 5 films, Korea debuted on a non- traditional Wednesday to an estimated Won 759m ($668k) from 1,134 screens.  These results exceeded opening day numbers for First Avenger by +53% and were on par with Thor.  The running cume is now KRW 1.2b ($1.1m).



Australia debuted on Thursday to an estimated A$895k ($636k), including previews, on 507 screens with a 48% share of the Top 5 five films.  These results are tracking 4% ahead of First Avenger.

Brazil opened to an estimated R$ 2.2m ($564k) on 1,509 screens with over 60% share of the Top 5 films.  These opening day results are coming on par with ANT-MAN and 10% over Guardians of the Galaxy.  Including previews, the running cume is now R$ 3.3m ($848k).



France took in an estimated €366k ($411k) on 566 screens on its opening day, ranking #1 into Thursday. The running cume, including previews, is €691k ($777k). 



Taiwan dominated the market with 65% share of the Top 5 films, taking in an estimated NT$11.4m ($371k) on Wednesday from 220 screens.  These results are +60% ahead of Ant-Man and +55% ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy.  Including previews, the 2 day running cume is now NT$40.5m ($1.3m).



Back on the domestic side, Pet Sematary is off to a strong start all its own with $2.3 million earned from shows beginning at 7pm in 2,942 locations last night. The well-reviewed horror remake came in 16 percent ahead of Insidious: The Last Key ($1.98 million) and 28 percent ahead of 2013’s Evil Dead remake ($1.8 million).





Last but not least, The Best of Enemies pulled $265K from 1,440 locations during shows beginning at 7pm. That’s 51 percent ahead of Chappaquiddick, which earned $175K in its Thursday start one year ago.
