How good is Aquaman doing in theaters? How much is it expected to gross?
DC Comics and Warner Bros took a big gamble in 2018, pinning their entire live-action franchise on Aquaman doing good. It paid off, BIG.
While many note that the film had the lowest opening weekend of the DCEU films, that was a trade-off (that was well documented) for a longer run with not one but two holidays for people to see it in theaters. And now, Forbes reports that the film has grossed $940 million dollars, and is expected to cross $1 billion dollars worldwide by this weekend, if not sooner.
Not only does this make the film the highest-grossing DCEU film ever (Wonder Woman ended with $822 million), it’s on pace to be the highest grossing superhero film from DC Comcis ever, beating both The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight rises.
That’s a pretty cool feat considering it’s a guy that talks to fish…right?
