“Aquaman” absolutely trashed the competition in its domestic box office opening over the weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter reported the following:
Warner Bros.’ Aquaman splashed down at the U.S. box office with $67.4 million from 4,125 theaters, easily winning the pre-Christmas session. Including paid sneaks, the tentpole pic’s early domestic total stands at $72.1 million.
The male-fueled pic, which cost at least $200 million to produce, has now amassed $410.7 million, including another $67.4 million over the weekend, for a global cume of $482.8 million.
Anybody who has been following the latest box office reports knows that “Aquaman” has been expected to absolutely destroy everything else. Here we are, and the numbers didn’t disappoint a bit. (RELATED: This Latest Superhero Movie Is Expected To Make A Sickening Amount Of Money)
If the numbers above are accurate, the film has already doubled the production budget, and it’s only been open in the United States for a few days.
What do we think the odds of a sequel here are? I’m putting them somewhere between 99 and 100 percent.

There isn’t a chance in hell the people behind this movie aren’t going to return to the well again in order to make another massive amount of cash.
I still haven’t seen “Aquaman” yet, but I intend to. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts if you’ve seen it. I’d be interested to hear what the audience has to say on this one.
