weekend box office aquaman week 3

It’s official: Aquaman is now the champion of the DCEU. A few years ago, if you had told me a movie starring Aquaman would outgross one featuring Batman and Superman, I might have laughed. But things change, and audiences can’t seem to get enough of James Wan‘s underwater hero. The Warner Bros. flick remained at the top of the box office for a third weekend in a row, with Escape Room coming in a distant second.

aquaman easter egg

Based on the splash that Aquaman made at the box office this weekend, you probably got a chance to see this movie about a fish-man and his epic undersea adventures and get your senses assaulted by a tidal wave of lavish visual imagery So you’d be forgiven for missing a few Aquaman Easter eggs along the way. Unless, that is, you’re Edgar Wright.

The Baby Driver director has an Aquaman Easter Egg dedicated just to him by James Wan, who gamely took on a bet with Wright two years ago involving a campy mid-’60s puppet series named Stingray. The only problem is that Wright didn’t bet money with Wan — he bet an Oscar statuette. So he’s going to get his hands on one of those first.

Some spoilers for Aquaman below.

james wan interview

After the release of Aquaman (out December 21, 2018), director James Wan will no longer be just “that horror guy.” The Warner Bros. superhero film has a humorous and light-hearted tone that more often than not transforms into full-blown kitsch, anchored around an effortlessly charismatic performance from Jason Momoa. And with Wan at the helm, the film’s stunning visual ambition and grandeur turns Aquaman into one of the most unique DC films to date.

But this isn’t the first brush with funny for the Malaysian born-Australian film director, screenwriter and producer behind the massively successful Saw and Conjuring franchises. Wan tested the waters for humor with his work in the Fast and Furious franchise, swooping in to direct the critically acclaimed Furious 7. In fact, Wan credits his one-movie stint in the gonzo Fast and Furious series with helping him to shape Aquaman and perhaps inspire him to move beyond horror. Wan talks about all that and more in our interview below.
