Aquaman performed exceptionally through the holiday season, only dropping 23.2 percent in its second weekend, and it has continued to succeed by nearly doubling the numbers of the closest competitor. This week’s percentage drop was, as expected, a bit steeper, going down 41.1 percent, but the results are still pretty incredible nonetheless. The $259.7 million it has made here at home is already more than Justice League made during its entire run in 2017, and the $291 million made by Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel is next on the take-down list.
Of course, while Aquaman is still climbing the ladder when it comes to domestic performance of DC Extended Universe features, it has already reached the top of the ladder worldwide. More than 72 percent of the film’s earnings so far have come from markets abroad, and that contribution has led to an international box office total of $940.7 million. This is already way, way more than the previous top of the leaderboard, Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which made $873.6 million back in 2016. And, again, the movie is still in the early weeks of its release.
