“Mahalo everyone for making Aquaman the number one movie in the world,” he writes in the Instagram post. “I love you guys. I’m so proud of this movie and everyone that worked on it CHEEEEEHUUUUUUUU Aloha.”
Fans have propelled Aquaman to the top of the box office for three straight weekends. The movie has made nearly $260 million at the box office in North America and $887.6 million around the world. That makes it the biggest DC Extend Universe film so far.
Even as Aquaman’s critical score as evened out on Rotten Tomatoes, its audience score has remained strong.
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, the half-human prince of Atlantis. When his half-brother stokes the fires of war, Aquaman finds himself trapped between the two worlds he loves. James Wan directeed Aquaman, which follows Momoa’s debut as the character in 2017’s Justice League, which was directed by Zack Snyder.
