Box-office fits with how the world loves crap, though. I'm sure Captain Marvel will be an infinitely better film than Aquaman but won't come close to what this film made.
What is your "over/under" for Captain Marvel vs Aquaman?
When you wrote that you had no idea that Captain Marvel would even do Ant-Man numbers, let alone Wonder Woman numbers and now Captain Marvel stands a mere $27 Million closer to Aquaman. The interesting thing is Aquaman's sole claim to an edge over Captain Marvel is China and China alone. Don't you have statements that speak to the rather weak profit performance that films have when China is used in a performance metric? Aquaman collected a whopping $298 million from China and Captain Marvel did $154 Million.
Aquaman had a hefty haul of $812 Million international while Captain Marvel is currently approximately at $700 Million international. It would seem that the return on revenue or ROI swings heavily in Marvel's favor on Captain Marvel vs AM.
If you subtract the China totals from both films CM thoroughly demolishes Aquaman to the point that Aquaman is well below the Billion Dollar club by $150 Million dollars!
Captain Marvel also would be kicked out of the $1 Billion dollar club but would only need $34 Million to regain entry.
You still sure that CM won't come close to Aquaman's total when CM's final numbers come in?
Are you still uber confident of that, ahem, QueenFanUSA factoid?
It's going to be very close. CM performed much better than I would have ever anticipated in all of it's markets. Deservedly so, as I think it's a much better film than Aquaman.
