The mandate on DC movies is now that they must be fun, and honestly, I’m okay with that. No one needs a dark and gritty Shazam!, and it looks like they’re leaning into the joyousness of superheroism with the upcoming film. Early reports have been incredibly positive, and with Warner Bros. screening the film weeks ahead at sneak peeks, the studio is clearly high on their latest DC flick. However, if you’d like to see the film for free, we might be able to help you out with that.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 25 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of Shazam! To enter for a chance to see the movie early and for free, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “SHAZAM!”. The screening is Tuesday, April 2nd at 7:30pm at Regal Atlantic Station, so please don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Multiple entries from a single person will disqualify all entries from that person.
Check out the latest Shazam! trailer below. The film opens April 5th and stars Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Djimon Hounsou.
Here’s the official synopsis for Shazam!:
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).
