54 0

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Warner Bros. Aquaman returned to the top of the worldwide box office over the weekend, pushing past the $1bn mark, according to estimates compiled by comScore.

Aquaman’s results were buoyed by the film’s strong performance in China, where it has earned more than $288 million, making it the fourth most successful foreign export in the market, behind Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War and the last two entries in the Fast and Furious franchise.

The results also make Aquaman Warner’s second highest grossing Warner Bros. film ever, with only Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows II earning more abroad.

In North American theaters, STX Entertainment’s dramedy The Upside, topped the domestic weekend box office, earning $19.6M in its debut weekend.

A remake of the French 2011 film The Intouchables, the movie features Byran Cranston cast as a disabled billionaire with comedian Kevin Hart as a recently released convict hired to care for Cranston.
