After a few weeks of major box office successes for the DC hero, Aquaman has finally fallen off the number one spot of the box office, according to Deadline. On Friday January 11, the recent box office results showed that the Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston remake of the French film The Intouchables, The Upside was the number one film for that Friday night. The film is projected make a $19 Million Dollar debut this weekend after a making a good $6 million on Friday.
Even though Aquaman has finally been de-throned as number one movie for the time being, the ship has not sunk for Aquaman just yet. In fact, it is still sailing strongly as Aquaman will cross the $1 billion mark worldwide at the box office. On Friday, the James Waan Superhero flick grossed $4.5 million, projecting it to add $15.3 million to it’s domestic gross that will be around $285 million by the end of the weekend. Aquaman will not only the highest grossing film of the DCEU thus far, but will also the 5th highest grossing film from Warner Brothers Pictures. The film is right behind such hits as The Dark Knight, The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey, The Dark Knight Rises and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. With such a big hit on their hands, Warner Brothers will definitely be sure to make more films with Jason Momoa’s now iconic version of the character.
