Aquaman Splashes Box Office with $51.6 million Second Weekend

Aquaman easily remained in the top spot at the crowded box office this holiday weekend with $51.6 million.  So far it has grossed $188.8 million. Overseas, it's still doing very well, as it added another $85.4 million for a foreign total of $560 million. Aquaman has made $748.8 million so far and has a good chance of becoming the highest grossing film of the current DCU.

Mary Poppins Returns made $28 million this weekend for second place, which is a welcome uptick of 19% since last weekend.  It has made $98 million domestically, and an early worldwide total of $173.3 million.

Bumblebee held on strong with $20.5 million for a 3rd place finish. It's domestic total so far is $66.8 million and $90 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $156.8 million. Despite being the best reviewed movie of the franchise, it's a bit slow at the box office, probably due to the franchise burnout.  The silver lining is that the Holidays are helping this film at box office.

Oh yeah, there were newcomers this week.  Both of which aren't faring too well. Vice made $7.8 for 6th place and the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly flick Holmes and Watson made $7.3 million for 7th place, the later of which is getting horrible reviews (9% Tomatometer).
