Aquaman — the highly anticipated film that stars Jason Momoa in the fresh adaptation of the classic DC Comics superhero — hits the big screens in the States on Dec. 21, but it is already making waves across the rest of the world.
As reported by Variety, it pulled in $126.4 million over the weekend from 43 territories, putting its global total at $261.3 million.
Its biggest audience has been in China thus far, with another $52.2 million earned just this past weekend alone.
While movie fans in the U.S. have to wait a few more days to see the film, it seems they’re not alone as leading man Momoa revealed he has yet to watch the movie because he’s been waiting to watch it with his children.
Meanwhile, earlier this month it was reported that Warner Bros. is already discussing plans for a possible sequel to the superhero film — although nothing is certain at this stage.
A writer hasn’t yet been commissioned for the sequel to Aquaman, which also features Amber Heard and Nicole Kidman and has James Wan at the helm — but internal talks have already been opened.
