‘Aquaman 2’ struggles

“Aquaman 2” has crossed the $250 million mark, nearing DC’s The Flash’s lifetime earnings of $270.63 million. However, the Jason Momoa-led film is facing challenges. “Aquaman” and the “Lost Kingdom the sequel”, is struggling, much like previous DC superhero films.

As per Deadline, the film earned $19.5 million, bringing its total earnings to a modest $84.7 million over two weeks. If compared to the original “Aquaman” which garnered a total of $215.4 million back in 2018, the gap is quite visible.

The premiere of “Warner Bros” and “Amblin’s The Color Purple” began with an impressive $18 million, marking the second-best opening for a film released on Christmas Day. In contrast, MGM and Amazon’s The Boys in the Boat, directed by George Clooney, followed closely with $11 million, bringing its estimated domestic total to $24.6 million by Monday.
