'Aquaman' Is Now One of the Top 20 Highest Grossing Movies of All Time
https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/02/17/aqu ... -all-time/

James Wan's 'Aquaman' Just Nabbed Two More Box Office Milestones
https://www.forbes.com/sites/scottmende ... 76156e28f6
For those who are only here for Aquaman updates, the DC Films flick earned another $1.885million (-41%) over its ninth weekend of domestic release, bringing its domestic cume to $331.371m. As such, sans inflation, it is now the past the domestic gross of Suicide Squad ($325m in 2016) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($330m in 2016) to become the second-biggest DC Films grosser in North America. It sits behind Wonder Woman ($412.5m), The Dark Knight Rises ($448m in 2012) and The Dark Knight ($534m in 2008) among all DC Comics flicks.

Overseas is an equally impressive story. It has earned $799.4 million outside of North America, with $298m of that coming from China and $8.6m from Japan. The Jason Momoa/Amber Heard flick is the second-biggest solo superhero movie in foreign grosses behind only Iron Man 3 ($805m in 2013). The James Wan-directed adventure has earned over $1.13 billion worldwide. That makes it the fourth-biggest non-Walt Disney/non-Universal release of all time behind only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II ($1.341b in 2011), Titanic ($2.1b) and Avatar ($2.8b). And, yeah, that still puts James Wan alongside James Cameron as the only director to helm two $1b+ for two different studios.

Aquaman is pretty much finished at this point. It’s just a question of whether it can catch up to Iron Man 3 overseas (probably) and Spider-Man 3 domestically (probably). As far as the James Cameron thing, for the record saying “I enjoyed this movie but I would have done it differently” is not a slam or even much of a criticism. If the success of Aquaman really making James Cameron jealous or concerned about his next underwater adventure, well, that’s good news. Because it’ll just make Cameron that much more determined to make sure that Avatar 2 makes us “sh**t our pants with our mouths wide open” (...)

I don’t do commentary track. Haven’t done one since my SAW days. I believe in retaining a little bit of filmmaking mystery still.
(Already plenty of ‘behind-the-scenes/making ofs’).


I believe that's a recurring mandate within DC. None of the films have commentary tracks.

I don't know why I'm not surprised, and even if they did I'm sure filmmakers wouldn't feel free to speak candidly, or that the studio would edit and censor as they see fit.


EDIT:
Am I the only one who thinks this scene was filmed from the reverse over the shoulders angle and then flipped horizontally in post? (which I think is how we see in the trailers)

'Aquaman 2' Sets December 2022 Release Date
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat- ... 22-1191133

Image

The first 'Aquaman' grossed north of $1.3 billion globally.
Aquaman 2 has booked a date to swim back into theaters.

Warner Bros. announced Wednesday that the sequel will open on Dec. 16, 2022. So far, no other movie has claimed the far-off date.

Aquaman, directed by James Wan, has grossed more than $1.14 billion at the worldwide box office in a superhero-like win for DC and Warners.

Star Jason Momoa is expected to return in the title role for Aquaman 2. David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote the first film, is officially on board for the sequel.

Wan is making a deal to return as producer, as is Peter Safran. It is unclear at this stage whether Wan will helm Aquaman 2. Wan and Safran also developing a spinoff focused on The Trench, in what will be a horror-tinged project about the deadly amphibious creatures who attacked Aquaman and Mera (Amber Heard) in the film.

Headline: $1.3 billion.

Then: $1.14 billion.

What is correct?

Both I guess, "north of" means it's on its way to reach an estimated $1.3 billion but the last recorded figure is 1.14...

Maybe you're right but for me the headline sounds like a statement not like a evaluation.

James Wan on the 4K UHD release and aspect ratio:
Aquaman is coming home!

Yes, it will retain the IMAX aspect ratio (meaning it will open up, top and bottom of frame, during those big visuals). This is my definitive version, and made sure it stayed that way for the home release. Looks gorgeous in UHD. This is the only cut.
It WILL switch between aspect ratios. But they happen in cuts, so you don’t really notice the switch.

'Aquaman' Producer on Spinoff and the Wait for a Sequel
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat- ... ff-1192505
“We always, even from the early concept art days, loved the idea of a Trench movie,” Safran told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday at the opening of the Aquaman exhibit at Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood. “Then, when audiences embraced it in the movie itself the way they did, particularly that ant farm shot where the camera follows the Trench [creatures] following Arthur and Mera down into the deep, we just knew that we had something very special there and we knew what that movie should be. And consequently, I suspect that that’s one that will come out significantly before Aquaman 2.”

Safran confirmed that Arthur and Mera won’t appear in The Trench, and noted that it will take place after the first Aquaman.

The producer is a longtime collaborator with Wan and head of DC Films Walter Hamada, specifically on the Conjuring universe — and that’s influenced how they’ve tackled Aquaman and his world. The Conjuring franchise began in 2013 and quietly grew into a shared universe that now includes the Annabelle films and last year's The Nun.

“We’ve definitely taken a page from our Conjuring playbook, which is: You’ve got the mothership, which is Aquaman, but there are so many great stories to tell within that universe of itself, that Atlantean universe,” Safran explained.

And the way that the three men work together has also informed the decision for a four-year gap before Aquaman 2.

“[Hamada], myself and James Wan always shared the same philosophy, which is: You want to do it right,” Safran said. “You don’t want to do it fast. You just want to do it right.”

The producer said Warner Bros. did not pressure them to move faster on a sequel.

“DC’s got a nice slate of movies that are coming out,” he said, pointing to April's Shazam! (which Safran is producing), 2020's Birds of Prey and 2021's The Batman and The Suicide Squad, all of which will come out before Aquaman 2.

Cool, I was worried we might not seeing him much (which will probably still be the case nonetheless).
