Aquaman Crosses $800 Million Worldwide, $200 Million Domestic

Aquaman is putting up impressive numbers at the box office and is on its way to becoming one of the best selling DC superhero films of all time.

DC’s latest foray onto the big screen, Aquaman, is turning out to be one of the company’s biggest successes, surpassing $822 million globally and $200 million in North America, according to a report from Variety.

This means that Aquaman has beaten the worldwide sales of Wonder Woman ($821 million), will soon beat Batman v Superman ($873 million) and will likely pass $900 million. This would make Aquaman the best performing DC movie since The Dark Knight Rises ($1.09 billion).

Aquaman also ranked high for New Years Day sales pulling in $16.78 million. This makes Aquaman the fourth best selling movie on New Years Day only behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avatar, and Meet The Fockers.

One of the biggest contributing factors to the film’s success is its performance in foreign markets. Overseas, Aquaman has made over $600 million, making it the best performing DC Superhero film of all time outside of North America. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film has made $260 million in China alone.

Aquaman had little trouble beating out it’s Christmas competition in Mary Poppins Returns ($184 million) and Bumblebee ($157 million). Critical reception also seems to be mostly positive with a current Rotten Tomatoes score of 64% and an audience score of 81%.

With many days left in its theatrical run, Aquaman is posed to beat out much of its DC film competition and could even become the ninth superhero film to cross $1 billion in worldwide sales.
