Originally it had been reported that the film would be taking in between $75-80M in China for its opening weekend after making $24M in just two days. That's massively above the opening day grosses for the previous DCEU films. Warner Brothers employed a novel strategy in attempting to buck that trend with Aquaman, and it appears to be paying off.

Heard and Fallon competed against each other in a "Spicy Bite Challenge", inspired by Heard's co-star Jason Momoa's children, who would spice up Heard's food while filming "Aquaman" to add some zing to the actors' strict superhero diet. Additionally, a full 25 minutes of preview footage was screened in Beijing in mid-November, further stoking discussion of and anticipation for the release.

Amber Heard, who plays the gorgeous and unsafe Mera in Aquaman, recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the new DC film.

In the USA, the film is now tracking for a $65 million-plus opening. It seems like a lot will ultimately hinge on how this is received and how well it performs at the box office.

From the look of things, Aquaman is going to be a massive hit before it even reaches the United States audiences.

"Years ago, how could we have imagined that the most explosive DC movie would be Aquaman?" wrote one Weibo commenter.

This report comes at a time when Warner Bros.is still looking for more key pillars of its DC Extended Universe, as the future landscape of that megafranchise continues to take shape in the wake of Justice League.

Also included in the cast are Patrick Wilson of the Conjuring series as nemesis Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as King's council Vulko, Nicole Kidman and Temeura Morrison (Jango Fett from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones) as Arthur's parents, and Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, the king of an Atlantean tribe known as the Xebel.
