Now Playing: Aquaman Spoiler Review: Underwater Insanity

The new superhero movie Aquaman enjoyed yet another weekend at the top of the box office charts. According to Entertainment Weekly, the movie made a further $30.7 million in the US and Canada for the January 4-6 weekend; it's now been the No. 1 movie for three straights weeks since its debut.

Aquaman was competing against just one other new release this weekend, Sony's Escape Room, which took in $18 million for a second-place finish. Marry Poppins Returns ($15.8 million), Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ($13 million), and Bumblebee ($12.8 million) rounded out the Top 5 five at the domestic box office this weekend.

Aquaman has now made $259.7 million at the US/Canada box office and $681 million from international markets for a total global haul of $940.7 million. $1 billion might be possible.

The film is now one of the biggest DC Extended Universe films, beating out Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($873.6 million) and Wonder Woman ($821.8 million). The Batman movies The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises each made more than $1 billion, so Aquaman still has some work to do to catch up to those.

Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, with a cast that also includes Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, and Nicole Kidman.
