Aquaman Becomes One of the Top 50 Highest-Grossing Films Ever

Director James Wan's Aquaman has officially made its way onto the list of the 50 highest-grossing films of all time.

The film has made $940.7 million worldwide, meaning it has leapfrogged Shrek 2 ($919.8 million), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers ($926 million), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($934.5 million), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix ($940 million) and Finding Nemo ($940.3 M) to claim the #46 spot on the list of top-grossing films.

Much like last year's Venom (which currently sits at the #66 spot with a gross of $855.5 million), Aquaman has done fairly well for itself stateside but has absolutely dominated overseas. According to Box Office Mojo, over 72% of the film's $940.7 million worldwide gross has come from the foreign box office.

As it stands, Aquaman is one of only three DC films to have earned a place on the top-50 list, the other two being 2008's The Dark Knight, which earned $1.005 billion to claim the #36 spot, and 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, which sits at the #24 spot with $1.085 billion.

Superman: Dawn of Justice ($873.6 million).

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.
