Sure, maybe box office returns aren't indicative of the audiences' enjoyment of a film, but it certainly makes a statement. Like with Warner Bros. Pictures most recent DC Comics release, Aquaman– which just set a new record for DC Comics superhero films at the international box office.
As of today, Aquaman has surpassed the previous DC Comics box office record holder Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
When the film first opened oversees, it took in roughly $94 million, which definitely put the movie in a position to move up some pegs on the board.
Aquaman overtook BvS with $887.6 million, pushing Dawn of Justice to second place for DC Comics films earnings with $872 million.
The film still has legs (ha), and will more than likely continue to sit at the top of the box office for awhile.
