Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema’s Shazam is currently in theatres and so far, it’s earned $323.8 million at the global box office.
The film has become a favourite amongst fans and critics alike, being praised for its tone, charm, diversity and its all-around good time at the cinema. It’s currently the second highest rated film in Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe, sitting at 90% on Rotten Tomatoes and an A score from CinemaScore.
With Shazam being in theatres for a few weeks now, conceptual design artist Laurent Ben-Mimoun has released some of his artwork from David F. Sandberg’s film. The images give us a look inside the Rock of Eternity, a young Taddeus Sivana meeting the ancient Wizard Shazam for the first time, Billy’s first interaction with the Wizard and his transformation into the titular hero.
Check out the images below:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still, a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
