Aquaman Crosses the $1 Billion Mark at the Box Office

Here in Ireland, "Aquaman" has made €1.318 million and has managed to stay within the Top 5 of the Irish box office for the past four weeks.

The film's worldwide earnings now stand at $1.02 billion, Box Office Mojo reports, as it earned another $17.26 million domestically and $27.9 million internationally over the weekend.

While Aquaman is the first movie from the unofficially named-DC Extended Universe to earn a billion dollars, it's not the first-ever film from DC Comics to do so.

Only 36 other movies have made $1 billion at the box office, according to Forbes. Given its current trajectory, it now seems likely that it'll surpass 'The Dark Knight Rises' and its $1.084 billion by this time next week.

In the United States and Canada, Aquaman has pulled in $287 million, which is below the domestic box office hauls of Wonder Woman ($412.5 million), Suicide Squad ($325.1 million), and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($330.3 million).

Of course, the major earner for "Aquaman" has been the global box office, with China being the largest market so far.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, "Aquaman", starring Jason Momoa in the title role.
