So, I didn't see this coming. "The Curse of La Llorona" on it's debut weekend, snagged top honors from the DC machine, "Shazam!" While yes, it is it's third weekend, I thought we'd see "Shazam!" on top until "Avengers: Endgame" would be released. Horror movies are a tricky genre for me. I never really know what's going to draw an audience. Sure, your classic slasher films will always do well...But, GREAT example, "Pet Sematary's" numbers seem disappointing to me. Wasn't it one of Stephen King's classics? "The Curse of La Llorona" certainly isn't my cup of tea. This is the type of movie I'd skip.
Here's your top 5 for the weekend. More at Box Office Mojo:
- "The Curse of La Llorona"- $26.5 Million
- "Shazam!"- $17.3 Million
- "Breakthrough"- $11.1 Million
- "Captain Marvel"- $9.1 Million
- "Little"- $8.4 Millio
