Aquaman About to Swim Past $1 Billion at the Box Office
Aquaman is already a success at the box office and if The trend is continues in this direction, the latest one could break the $ 1 billion mark before everything is said and done. So far, the current DC universe, known unofficially as the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), has faced its share of problems, at least critically. But it seems that frankness turns around and that an unsuspecting hero, in the form of Aquaman is responsible. The cinematic universe of DC could now turn to its very first $ 1 billion film.
In the state, Aquaman has generated a business turnover of $ 106 million since its release last week. and has already made $ 550 million worldwide. The film was released in some foreign markets before its launch on the domestic market. Just a few years ago, it would be unthinkable to think that a film centered on a comic book hero, originally from many jokes in pop culture for decades, would have done very well. Thinking that he could do more than movies like Spider-Man: Homecoming or Wonder Woman is downright stunning.
Looking at the box office’s long-term prospects, a new report indicates that Aquaman should have no problem breaking the 900 million mark dollars before concluding his theatrical tour. If things go well, we could consider the even more impressive course of a billion dollars. If that happened, it would be the fifth film released in 2018, after by Avengers: Infinity War ($ 2.04 billion), Black Panther (from 1.34 billion of dollars), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ($ 1.304 billion) and Incredibles 2 ($ 1.24 billion).

This is also auspicious for Shazam who will arrive in April 2019.
Director James Wan has managed to make a film that has a link with fans and critics, as Aquaman currently holds a decent 64% decent rate on rotten tomatoes, with a very good 82% audience score.
