The latest DCEU blockbuster, Aquaman, continues its impressive box office performance, earning over $500 million at the worldwide box office following its first weekend released in the United States.
On Christmas Eve, the superhero film earned $11.2 million at the domestic box office putting its combined global box office over the $500 million mark. Coming out of its first weekend in the United States, the film had earned $488.7 million worldwide.
