Not only has the newest DC Extended Universe movie raked in $105 million in North America, including $22 million on Christmas Day alone, but it's also surpassed $500 million globally over the course of its short theatrical run thus far.

In fact, on the strength of its continued impressive performance internationally and likelihood to be a strong holdover domestically, the film could score over $700 billion worldwide by the end of the weekend.

With New Year's Eve and New Year's Day coming at the beginning of next week, the film will likely become the DCEU's third highest-grossing, behind Batman v Superman and Wonder Woman, and be well on its way to $900+ million and eventually $1 billion.

Even if Aquaman drops precipitously in North America, it will still end its run with more than $750 million worldwide. More likely, though, the King of Atlantis is poised to become the king of the DCEU box office too.

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, 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 now in theaters nationwide.
