Global #boxoffice for #Aquaman thru THU:— Gitesh Pandya (@GiteshPandya) December 21, 2018
US/Canada $13.7M (pre-shows & previews)
TOTAL $345.8M (including North America)
China currently remains the biggest box office market for the film at $209.5 million, first opening in the country three weeks ago. It is already the highest earning Warner Bros. film in China to date and poised to potentially overtake the impressive Chinese box office totals for Venom in a matter of weeks.
Prior to the film's domestic opening, industry analysts predicted Aquaman would earn approximately $120 million domestically over the course of the five-day Christmas holiday weekend. If these estimates prove accurate, Aquaman's combined box office totals will be just shy of $500 million by the day after Christmas and well on its way to potentially becoming the highest earning DCEU film to date.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna. The film is out in theaters everywhere now.
