After an impressive opening in China, Aquaman premiered in the states with a $67.4 million opening weekend. That may sound like a lot, but it is actually the lowest opening weekend for any DC Universe movie.
But don’t count the James Wan movie out yet. The Christmas box office brought in another $22 million alone, bringing the domestic take over the $100 million mark.
With word of mouth being great for this movie, strong foreign ticket sales and minimal competition over the next few weeks, things are looking good for the King of Atlantis.
As it stands, Aquaman is tracking to pass the billion-dollar mark, making it the most successful entry in the DC franchise yet. It’s already made the majority it will make in the Chinese market, so the retention in the states this upcoming weekend will determine if it can reach that milestone.
