Aquaman is swimming in cash. The DC film is now the fifth highest-grossing superhero movie ever released in China with $135.3M. It has recently passed Marvel Studios pictures like Spider-Man: Homecoming, Iron Man 3, and Ant-Man and the Wasp on the all-time box office charts in the territory.
By the end of its second weekend in China, Aquaman will have passed Captain America: Civil War ($180.8M) for fourth place. After that, James Wan’s oceanic epic will only trail Avengers: Infinity War, Venom, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Aquaman opens in more markets this week, followed by its domestic release on December 21. The reviews are mostly good (including ours) and this early international success could propel Aquaman all the way to the top of the global box office charts for the current era of DC Films.
