Shazam now has a second trailer online, although it classes it as a ‘Sneak Peek’. The film is still out on April 5th.
Check out the new clip below:
Previously on DVDfever:
July 22nd 2018:
Shazam centres around 14-year-old Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who once again finds himself in a new foster-family until the day comes when the troubled child is confronted by an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou), who gives him the power to transform into an older, godlike superhero upon uttering the words “Shazam!”
Billy and his new foster-brother Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) must learn how to use his new powers to stop the villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong – Grimsby).
I have no knowledge of this character before this recent dribble of DC movies, so to me, Shazam is the phone app which tells me what song I’m listening to, rather than some comedy superhero. It’ll also be coming out some time between Captain Marvel and the next Avengers movie, so I can’t see this doing brilliantly.
It’s also very reminiscent of Tom Hanks’ movie, Big. I knew of the film but couldn’t think of the title, as this was reminding me of something 🙂
The film still looks like it sucks, though.
Apparently, the Shazam trailer “dropped” and is “dope”. What does any of this mean in English?
If you are actually looking forward to this, it’s released in the UK on April 5th 2019, the same date as the US get it.
