That's better than the $3.3 million and $3.4 million earned by Blue Beetle and Shazam, but significantly lower than The Flash's $9.7 million in previews and Black Adam's $7.6 million. $6.6 million from “The Marvels” last month.

The first Aquaman movie grossed a staggering $335 million in North America and $1.15 billion worldwide, a number the sequel isn't even expected to come close to.

The film also faces significant competition from films such as Illumination's “Migration,” which earned $1.5 million in its premiere, the romantic comedy “Anyone But You,” which earned $1.2 million, and Zac Efron's wrestling drama “The Iron Claw.” “, and the romantic comedy “Anyone But You,” which earned $1.2 million.
