“Aquaman” continued to dominate the box office over the weekend, and the numbers have only continued to shoot up.

The Hollywood Reporter reported the following on the numbers:

Superheroes continue to dominate at the box office, where James Wan’s Aquaman stayed atop the chart in its third weekend with a domestic haul of $30.7 million, putting the pic’s North American total at $259.7 million for a mighty global tally of $940.7 million.

The Warner Bros. film enjoyed a major milestone Friday as it passed up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($873.6 million) to become the biggest title in the DC Extended Universe, not adjusted for inflation. Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa in the titular role, is now assured of crossing $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales.

The numbers just keep getting crazier and crazier for the hit superhero movie. It has made nearly $950 million so far! Are you kidding me? (RELATED: This Latest Superhero Movie Is Expected To Make A Sickening Amount Of Money)

You could buy a pro sports franchise with that kind of cash. Where will it end? I have no idea, but it’s absolutely going to crush the billion dollar mark. That’s pretty much a guarantee at this point.

It would have to be pulled from every theater immediately for that not to happen.

I also still haven’t even managed to see “Aquaman” yet. I had the chance to see it over Christmas, but opted to see “Vice” instead. I don’t regret the decision. The Dick Cheney movie with Christian Bale was awesome.

Eventually, I’m sure I will get around to seeing “Aquaman” myself, and figure out just how good it is. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews. We’ll have to see how it turns out.

In the meantime, we can keep tracking the massive cash it keeps pulling down.
