Here’s how Shazam! director David F. Sandberg responded to the news.
While I’m an impatient bastard who wants people to see it as soon as possible (the film will be fully done in just a few weeks), the move makes sense since Avatar was taking all IMAX/PLF screens,” Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg wrote in a tweet addressing his film’ delay. “Fury of the Gods is a big movie [and] should be seen big.
