Applaudience: Wild Rose blossoms under Shazam!

wildrose.jpgWild Rose to bloom this weekend whilst Shazam! holds the Box Office top spot and the cinematic juggernaut, Avengers: Endgame, continues to dominate pre-sales, having already sold 865,000 tickets.

Entertainment One’s Wild Rose is forecast to be the underdog winner at this weekend’s Box Office, with the film expected to gross over £800,000. The delightful drama, starring Jessie Buckley as a Glaswegian with aspirations of Nashville, has received a number of strong reviews and great word of mouth from talker screenings, which has led to a surge in pre-sales.

According to cinema data experts Applaudience, the top two films remain unchanged this weekend, with Shazam! and Dumbo retaining the top spots, holding off Lionsgate’s latest blockbuster, Hellboy, which is expected to gross approximately £1.4m. It seems that the Box Office will be healthily spread this weekend, with the majority of films forecast to take between 550k – 850k.
