Box Office in 2018 was great for movies which were shattering record one after another. It started with Jumanji continuing its record-breaking run from last year heading into Black Panther and despite the abundance of superhero movies, almost every one of them has done really well this year. There are also some big disappointments that were expected to do well but ended up failing massively, making it to the biggest failures of the year.
Aquaman launched first in the International market and opened to record numbers in China. It then continued to do well with a great word of mouth and strong legs at the box office which helped propel it to the top 10 best grossing movies in 2018. It is amazing to see how the movie has done so well, and actually ended up being a surprise hit of the year.
