After Disney's underperformance last week with the release of "Dumbo," the box office rebounded this weekend thanks to the help of a child superhero.
"Shazam!", the latest DC Comics release from Warner Bros. that follows a boy who turns into a Superman-like hero whenever he says the word "Shazam", won the box office with an estimated $53.4 million domestically.
Opening on over 4,200 screens, the lighthearted movie that's a mix between "Big" and "The Goonies" was a must-see for fans of the comic as well as the general superhero moviegoer, which felt confident of a good time with the movie's 91% Rotten Tomatoes score.
