‘Aquaman’ Just Became the Internationally Highest Grossing DC Comics Film

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.

No word on if Guinness stock rose with the tides

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.
