Moviegoers have plenty to look forward to at theaters over the Christmas holiday week.

On Friday, December 21, a number of blockbusters led the way in theaters for total revenue earned. However, a Disney favorite is also back, as well as an action/western star. Below is a look at what's doing well as of this past Friday (December 21) at theaters.

1

'Aquaman' (Warner Bros)

The newest DC Comics solo superhero flick brings Jason Momoa as the aquatic hero who can talk to fish. It's getting mixed reviews, but good praise for Momoa as the title character. This could become DC's most successful male superhero film. It's already done well in China and has made an estimated $28 million.

2

'Bumblebee' (Paramount)

Surprisingly, the No. 2 entry has better overall review scores at Rotten Tomatoes than No. 1 or No. 3 on the list. "Bumblebee" is about the yellow car Transformer. This Transformers prequel stars Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena. It's generated $8.46 million so far from December 21 estimates.
