Movie story - Shazam!
All 14-year-old Billy Batson's needs to do is shout out one word to transform into the adult superhero Shazam. Still a kid at heart, Shazam revels in the new version of himself by doing what any other teen would do -- have fun while testing out his newfound powers. But he'll need to master them quickly before the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana can get his hands on Shazam's magical abilities.

Eighth Grade

Avengers: Endgame

The latest Marvel movie, and end of this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, took a gigantic £43.4 million on its debut weeekend.

Spectre in 2015 took the title with a 7 day opening, Monday - Sunday, so this is actually more impressive.

The film opened higher than expectation and we will be watching over the coming weeks to see if the film continues to gross well and beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens £123 million total gross, the highest in the UK.

Dumbo

Tim Burtons live action remake continues to do well at the UK box office and remains at number 2 this week with £1.02 Million.

Wonder Park

The animated film climbs from 7 back to number 3 on its 3rd weekend of release with a £454,366 weekend, pushing its total to £3.8 million.

Red Joan

The Judi Dench starring film also climbs this week to number 4 with a weekend of £420,629 which now puts its total gross at £1.5 million.

Shazam!

The DC Captain Marvel falls from the top to number 5 this week with the Marvel film giving people their super hero fix.

The film takes £398,317 on its 4th weekend and it sits at £12.8 million in total grosses.

Captain Marvel

There was a thought that the other Marvel super hero film on release at the moment would get a boost from Avengers: Endgame but in reality the film falls to 6 on its 8th week of release, its total gross is £38.8 million.

Eighth Grade

Praised by critics this coming of age drama from director Bo Burnham lands on the box office at number 10 with £144,923, it did go up agains Avengers: Endgame!

With the release of a new Marvel movie there is always excitement, but this one is a bit different with pre-hype predicting the film would be big and sure enough Avengers: Endgame opens to the largest weeekend gross in the US ever.

Captain Marvel

Avengers: Endgame

Films open big but none this big and the final instalment of this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe opens to the tune of $350 million.

This easily beats the previous biggest opening, Avengers: Infinity War, by 36% proving that built up hype can work, and with the critics generally liking it film it must have helped its box office.

Analysts will now be looking to see if the film can beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens total gross of $936.6 million and if it can become the first movie to gross more than a Billion dollars in the US.

Captain Marvel

Getting a good boost from its Marvel stablemate this film goes back to number 2 this week with a gross of $8 million on its 8th weekend.

This pushes the films total US gross to $413.5 million and eyeing its next milestone of half a billion dollars.
