Box Office: Can 'The Upside,' 'A Dog's Way Home' Sink 'Aquaman'?

Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston have a Herculean task this weekend: Taking on “Aquaman.”

Hart and Cranston co-star in STX Films and Lantern Entertainment’s “The Upside,” one of the three movies opening nationwide on Friday that will have to compete with reigning box office champ, “Aquaman.” And unless a new title (the other two releases being Sony’s “A Dog’s Way Home” and Entertainment Studios’ “Replica”) pulls off a surprise, it looks like the King of the Seven Seas will rule yet again.

Warner Bros.’ comic-book tentpole “Aquaman” — starring Jason Momoa and directed by James Wan — has generated over $943 million worldwide and is well on its way to crossing the $1 billion mark. If the aquatic blockbuster sees a similar decline to last weekend, it could add another $15 million to $18 million domestically in its fourth week of release. “Aquaman” has earned a solid $259 million in the States, but overseas is where the real cash is flowing. With an international bounty of $683 million, Arthur Curry and his Atlantean cohorts shattered the previous record — set by “The Dark Knight Rises” with $636 million — for DC’s highest-grossing title abroad.
