Update for the latest …: Warner Bros / DCs Aquaman today made its first strikes in China and estimated $ 24.6 million . . (RMB 169.5M). The studio has pulled the stops when the Middle Kingdom launches the Jason Momoa star two weeks before the domestic release. The DCEU did not have the draw in China that the Marvel Cinematic Universe enjoyed, but Aquaman is about to reach the DC brand with a possible debut weekend of over $ 80 million.
The Flash estimate on 30,500 screens, of which 100% are 3D screens, is the highest opening day ever for a World Champion title and the industry's best opening day for December. The film had a market share of 86% on Friday. The online mood is high with a Maoyan score of 9.5, Taopiaopaio at 9.4 and Douban at 8.4.
Previous trips to DC Batman V Superman: Dawn, Wonder Woman and Justice League China had full opening frames totaling 57.2 million USD, 51
Directed by James Wan, the stand-alone sees Momoa learn Arthur Curry / Aquaman that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and that he must step forward to lead his people, being dangerous looking for old secrets. Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Niocole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren, Djimon Hounsou and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II are also stars.
The figure is from the year 1941 in the comics; Momoa was briefly introduced in 19459004 Dawn Of Justiceas a maritime loner with superhuman strength, and then in Justice League in a larger role.
Aquaman was released in China in mid-October and used it to spread the word locally. It is still rare for a movie to premiere in the Middle Kingdom before the inland, but we have already seen some examples of it. Warner campaigned strongly for local advertising. Momoa, Heard and Wan all visited the market, where WB worked with major online outlets and social media platforms such as Weibo and WeChat.
The 25-minute recordings shown on site met with enthusiastic social reactions that are paying off now that the film has opened.
Aquaman is characterized by being the first superhero movie released by WB for Christmas. BVS was a March / Easter movie, Wonder Woman which was played in the summer, and Justice League was last year on the domestic Thanksgiving Corridor. The film could benefit overseas from the early-summer school holidays, while in China recently, after the outsized performance of Sony / Marvel's Venom (which received an extended release last week) this did not have much of an effect Frame still.)

Its major markets were China, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Australia and Mexico, and its final gross offshore revenue was $ 409.2 million.
The Justice League earned $ 51.8 million (RMB 343.8 million) on the launching weekend of the Middle Kingdom. $ 106M will take there at the final. The overseas total was $ 429 million, with Brazil, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Oz behind China.
