Aquaman 2 Weekend Box Office: Debuts at the Top, But Numbers Don’t Make Waves

There is disappointment and concerns surrounding the performance of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” at the box office. The movie is reported to have a disappointing 3-day opening weekend in the US with $28.1 million and is predicted to have a challenging run overseas compared to the 2018 Aquaman film.

This is the lowest opening for a theatrical-only DC Extended Universe film except Blue Beetle’s $25M opening this year.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom led the overseas box office with a 5-day opening of $80.1 million, which surpasses Shang-Chi ($56.2M), The Marvels ($63.3M), The Flash ($75M), Black Adam ($75.9M), Black Widow ($78.8M), and Eternals ($90.7M), but falling behind Quantumania’s $121.3 million debut.

The global 5-day opening of the movie is reported at $108.1 million, falling short in comparison to other recent superhero films, and estimated to pass $120M for the worldwide holiday weekend.

The production budget is stated at $205 million, not including marketing costs. The film is directed by James Wan and features a cast including Jason Momoa, Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman, and others.
