Aquaman has just hit the $261 million USD mark over the weekend; all contributed by international moviegoers. China was the biggest market with $189.2 million USD since opening ($100 million USD on opening weekend), while Mexico raked in $7.9 million USD on opening weekend, followed by Brazil ($7.7 million USD), Russia ($7.4 million USD), and then the United Kingdom ($6.5 million USD).

The Aquaman title has also helped propel the DC Extended Universe franchise past the $4 billion USD mark in terms of worldwide box office earnings — trailing Marvel Studios’ $6.8 billion USD total.

Starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, and Willem Dafoe, Aquaman will see a North American release this weekend December 21. Let’s see if the James Wan-directed film measures up to stateside expectations.

In other movie news, ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ debuts at No. 1 with $35.4 million USD.
