AQUAMAN surpasses BATMAN v SUPERMAN in North America

These days there’s very little news on Warner Bros. Aquaman. The movie is quietly heading towards its home video release in March but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still box office hurdles to conquer.

Over the weekend the movie grossed a further $1.8M in North America. That may seem like a small figure but it was enough to help the King of Atlantis cross $331M.

Now sitting at $331.3M Aquaman has surpassed the lifetime gross of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That film ended its box office run with $330.3M back in 2016.

With a couple of weeks left to go before it closes Aquaman is likely to close its North American run with around $335M. Worldwide the movie has now grossed $1.13bn.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Aquaman stars Jason Momoa in the title role of Arthur Curry/Aquaman. The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe as Vulko; Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II  as Black Manta; with Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman as Atlanna.

The film is being produced by Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
