DC’s Aquaman has become the king of the box office, and the actor, Jason Momoa is now thanking all his fans for their support.
Jason Momoa had posted an all-new video on Instagram, and the actor is seen thanking all his fans for making the movie, Aquaman the number one film in the world.
“Mahalo everyone for making Aquaman the number one movie in the world,” he had written on Instagram post.
“I love you guys. I’m so proud of this movie and everyone that worked on it CHEEEEEHUUUUUUUU Aloha.”
All the DC fans have propelled Aquaman up the ladder of the box office for three straight weekends. This movie has also made close to $260 million at the box office in North America and also earned $887.6 million worldwide. This has made it the biggest DCEU film ever.
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as the character, Arthur Curry, the half-human prince of Atlantis. When the character’s half-brother starts a war, Aquaman is trapped between the two worlds that he loves.
James Wan has directed Aquaman, and this follows Momoa’s debut as this character in the movie, Justice League, that had been directed by Zack Snyder. Wan had also discussed the importance of putting his touch on Aquaman:
“It was very important for me early on to be allowed to make my own film and to have my own voice be in there,” Wan had said.
“After Furious 7 and Conjuring 2, I didn’t want to be a director for hire. After Furious 7, that’s kind of who I was to some degree, but after that, I don’t want to be that guy again. So, it was very important for me to be able to bring my own stamp, my own visual aesthetic, create the characters. Even though Jason has somewhat been established Justice League, I wanted to bring his character into this, basically, fresh in a lot of ways.”
“So it was important for me to obviously pay a respect to where he was left off in [Justice League], but then allow me the freedom to take him to where I want to take him at the end of the movie. My hero goes on this hero’s journey to become someone very different than where he started. That was something that was very important for me. But the movie I want to make, that I was allowed that freedom to do that.”
Aquaman is now playing in theatres.
