James Wan’s “Aquaman” has now passed Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” to become the biggest superhero film based on a DC Comics property and the biggest ever for Warner Bros. Pictures. Thanks to this weekend’s haul, the film has passed a worldwide gross of $1.09 billion.
Domestically the film came in third this weekend, adding a further $7.4 million to its $317 million U.S. haul thus far. It came in well ahead of the two wide openers this week “The Kid Who Would Be King” with $7.25 million in fourth place, and the divisive “Serenity” with $4.8 million in eighth place.
“Glass” and “The Upside” retained the top two slots with $19 million and $12.2 million respectively, but “Glass” slid by 59% in its second week – a fairly sharp drop which suggests it won’t have legs. Both “Green Book” and “The Favourite” reportedly scored the best box-office upswings in the wake of the Golden Globes last weekend.
