Aquaman made its debut in China, and the box office numbers are strong for the Jason Momoa-starring film. According to Warner Bros., Aquaman earned $93.6 million over the weekend in China. This was the largest opening ever for a D.C. title in China, outpacing previous titles like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($55.7 million opening) and Justice League ($50.5 million opening).
Aquaman also became the studio’s biggest opening ever, surpassing Ready Player One’s $61.6 million opening weekend back in March. The film is currently the fourth biggest opening for a superhero film in China, falling behind Avengers: Infinity War ($191 million opening), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($155.7 million opening) and Venom ($107.6 million opening). Domestically, the film is expected to earn $65 million during its opening weekend. Aquaman opens in the U.K. on Dec. 12, in Australia on Dec. 13 and in the United States on Dec. 21.
