He's got the gills to pay the bills, y'all. DC's AQUAMAN dove into China with a record-breaking $24.6M on Friday--the highest debut of all time for a WB film. It's also the biggest December opening day ever in the Middle Kingdom.

3-day opening is estimated to be around $90 million for China. It's possible that it could gross $250 million in China alone. With only China and US box office combined, this film could outgross Justice League's entire international run in just one month.
More: This will push AQM's 3-day opening to be around $90M(¥619M), a record for DEC opening in local currency. It also means AQM will top the lifetime gross of Wonder Woman(¥610.1M), Batman v Superman(¥619.3M) in just 3 days. Justice League(¥690.6M) will be done on MON.

$250M-plus should happen considering competitions are so weak in the next 2 weeks. $280M-plus can be expected.

I hope my expectations for this movie are exceeded.

#Aquaman just crossed the 100M total in #China by 4pm on Monday local time. Made in 3 and a half days more money than the other DCEU movies made during their entire #boxoffice run there. @creepypuppet This Wednesday the movie debuts in the U.K. as well.

I don't think these numbers tell us a lot about Aquaman's quality but rather about the Chinese release schedule. Usually, they get stuff waaaaay after the rest of the world when they can already get a quality screener online. Now they got it earlier and I think that's what they're supporting.

I think more studios should prioritize giving the Chinese their films a lot faster since Aquaman's Chinese BO will most likely outgross the US one.
