Now that Aquaman is hovering a few days away from its official release date, analysts have the newest numbers on the film's opening weekend, and it looks like Jason Momoa's first standalone movie as Arthur Curry is expected to rake in a massive $120+ million haul during its first few days in cinemas.

Deadline has the newest tracking report on Aquaman, and according to the publication, the DC Extended Universe entry is set to amass more than $120 million during its five-day holiday weekend in cinemas. The film is expected to bring in around $70 million during its three-day weekend (just about $24 million less than the money that Justice League made when it premiered last year) and then another $50 million during the next two days of the holiday weekend.

This is definitely great news for DC fans.

Aquaman has been having a great time in the international film market, swimming past Captain America: Civil War's ten-day record in China with its $189 million haul in the East Asian country. In comparison Civil War only had $155.8 million during its first ten days in China, and with Aquaman's positive reviews, we're likely going to see even bigger numbers as the film continues its theatrical run in the international box office's biggest foreign market.

Right now Aquaman is enjoying a 69% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics praising the film for its stunning visual effects and its elaborate world building. Not only has the film been compared to the Lord of the Rings, but it's also been likened to Star Wars as well.

Aquaman comes swimming into cinemas December 21, 2019.
