‘Aquaman’ Passes $1 Billion Mark

When “Aquaman” first hit theaters, it was met with mixed critical reviews and doubts about its  box office potential. But it looks like this under… fish is beating the odds.

“Aquaman” became the first film in the DC Extended Universe to pass the $1 billion mark on Saturday, leaving its reported $160-200 million budget in the dust.

The film’s success seems to be largely due to its popularity in the international market —  namely in China, where it has earned, to date, $287.3 million.

The film has made $733 million internationally and $287 million domestically for a grand total of $1 billion, according to Box Office Mojo.
