Body-swap comedies dominate Hellboy at the box office

Looks like Hellboy’s drubbing was not limited to its critical reception.

Over the weekend, the comic book hero reboot fell well short of both expectations and a couple movies where someone’s age is abruptly changed. Shazam! followed its opening with a second weekend at the top, taking in about $25 million. Little, the latest in the comedy tradition of a career-minded adult learning a life lesson by becoming a teenager for a few days, debuted in second with an estimated $15.5 million. Meanwhile, Hellboy missed its high-teens projections to instead deliver just $12 million, coming in just above Pet Sematary and Dumbo. If only someone had thought to have Hellboy magically transform into a Hellman.
