The biggest debut for Warner Bros. movie in China - Aquaman is already released in the Chinese market. Earning $93.6 million in ticket sales, Aquaman has made a new record for Warner Bros. and DC's opening-weekend movies in the second largest film industry in the world.

Next week, Aquaman will be available in 40 other countries and come out in North American cinemas on December 21. Besides Aquaman, the big-budget installment of Paramount’s 'Transformers' franchise - Bumblebee also got a good sign this week.

Paramount refused to announce its ticket sales, but  Domestic Distribution President Kyle Davies revealed that most tickets were sold out. Probably, more importantly, the prequel got benefits from an effective word of mouth with glowing reviews thanks for director Travis Knight and actress Hailee Steinfeld. The previous two Transformers films were bigger hits in China than they were in the U.S.

Directed by James Wan and produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, this action-packed adventure starred Jason Momoa in the title role. The movie reveals the origin story of half of humanity, half of Atlantean Arthur Curry and the journey to discover he is worthy and he was born to be... a king.
