Los Angeles – Not only being king in the ocean, Aquaman has also been able to survive in the North American box office for the past two weeks. Last week, this film by James Wan apparently pocketed US $ 52.1 million (Rp. 753.8 billion) at 4,125 cinema screens.
This number is enough to make a proud Warner Bros production house. Not to mention seeing income in the international market, the figure is not less large, namely US $ 562.4 million (Rp 81, trillion). Of course, the biggest market and largest contributor is China, which until now has reached US $ 232.9 million (Rp3.3 trillion).
Not infrequently, people say Aquaman followed a film starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman is called the best DC film and savior of Warner Bros. Because, since the Batman v Superman movie: Dawn of Justice (2016) was released, the film adapted from DC Comics is often disliked by fans of super hero films.
Even so, on social media also debated the performance of Aquamans as the successor to the success of Wonder Woman. However, this was not questioned by the director. In fact, James Wan was very concerned about the film critics bullied by Aquaman fans for giving negative ratings.
