Warner Bros' underwater adventure, Aquaman, swam past the $179.1 million mark at the global box office in just the first two weeks of its release. Despite opening to mixed reviews, the ocean-set film starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard and Nicole Kidman grossed a whopping $135 million in China alone after hitting screens one week ago, reports Deadline.
The film also made a splash in seven more markets on Friday and amassed $27 million the same day worldwide.
The DC big-ticket is expected to hit the coveted $250 million mark this weekend, according to a report by Forbes. Despite the polarised reviews, the film is reportedly the fourth biggest superhero flick of all time.
With Christman just around the corner, Aquaman should enjoy an uninterrupted run at the global box office, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. Reports have already started comparing the film's performance in China to that of Wonder Woman and Black Panther, considering the warm welcome it has received in the countries. In India, too Aquaman released in 1,850 on Friday and made $956K, which is almost double of what Wonder Woman grossed on its debut, according to Deadline.
The film marks Aquaman's first independent appearance since Justice League in 2016.
