While there’s still some time for DC’s Aquaman to release, it has already taken one record from this year’s Infinity War.
Aquaman has now become Atom Tickets’ top ticket sales in 24 hours record holder. It was previously held by Avengers: Infinity War and while this doesn’t mean that Aquaman will beat Infinity War at the box office, it’s clearly a good start.
The first 24 hour tallies include the Amazon Prime exclusive screening which will take place on December 15th in 1,000 locations. The ticket seller on this is Atom which has helped Aquaman in breaking the record, but nevertheless, this does sound like a good start.
The film also impressed over on Fandango, as it went past Misson: Impossible Fallout and Venom.
Director James Wan previously stated how this film was different from other DC films.
“It was very important for me early on to be allowed to make my own film and to have my own voice be in there,” Wan told ComicBook.com. “After Furious Seven and Conjuring 2, I didn’t want to be a director for hire. After Furious Seven, that’s kind of who I was to some degree, but after that, I don’t want to be that guy again. So, it was very important for me to be able to bring my own stamp, my own visual aesthetic, create the characters.”
Aquaman will hit the theatres on December 21.
