Aquaman is likely to fetch $100 million in its first weekend in the United States and overtake Justice League, although it faces competition from Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee from the Transformers universe. According to the latest report on BoxOfficeIndia.com, DC's latest superhero movie "Aquaman" which is helmed by James Wan has managed to collect Rs 3.50 crore on its first Monday which has taken the total collection of the film to Rs 27.50 crore. It opened to Rs 8 crore on its first day in India, on its way to a total of approximately Rs 40 crore.
Despite not opening in the USA until Friday, Aquaman has already racked up more than $260 million in worldwide ticket sales.
Meanwhile, Marvel clearly has the edge at the Indian box office.
If he could have featured another DC character in the film, who would he have picked?
"It's pretty insane. For as big a movie as "Aquaman" is, I could not have had more freedom". The magnum opus Justice League, which did not deliver a strong performance on its home turf, did rule Indian box office but its collections were not very strong.
With Aquaman opening in North American theaters this weekend, I recently sat down with director James Wan to talk about the movie.
Wizard World events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop culture: movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more. And Aquaman is a test of the single superhero formula. After all, thinking you can take a film apart, reshoot much of it with a different director and then turn out the Frankensteinian whole onto the public and expect us to hoover it up takes guts. The film's performance in key worldwide market has got itself the title of the number one movie internationally during the December 14 weekend, ahead of its United States debut on December 21, according to a Box Office Mojo report.
