Press/Video: ‘Aquaman’ Trailer: Heavy Lies Jason Momoa’s Crown, Especially When He’s Being Pursued by Black Manta

IndieWire – His days of playing Khal Drogo long behind him, Jason Momoa has moved on to a different kind of fantasy: “Aquaman,” the latest in the beleaguered DC Extended Universe. The first movie in that franchise since “Justice League” failed to live up to expectations shines a spotlight on the oceanic superhero of the title, who must choose between his watery roots and the landlubbin’ way of live he’s gotten used to. Watch a new extended trailer below.

Known on land as Arthur Curry, the hero in question is a half-human, half-Atlantean fellow born of a lighthouse keeper and a mermaid who’s drawn back to the family kingdom against his will. Though he didn’t ask for these royal duties, one imagines ol’ Aquaman will find it within him to rise to the occasion and ascend to the throne he was born to sit on — even as he’s pursued by Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II).

Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, and Dolph Lundgren all co-star. James Wan directed the film, his first outside the “Insidious” and “The Conjuring” franchises in more than a decade. Warner Bros. will release “Aquaman” on December 21.

Press/Video: First ‘Aquaman’ Trailer Makes a Splash at Comic-Con

 

VARIETY – Warner Bros. is taking the DC Extended Universe underwater with the release of the upcoming “Aquaman,” starring “Game of Thrones” alum Jason Momoa.

 

Directed by James Wan, Momoa stars as Arthur Curry, a half-human, half-Atlantean man caught between two worlds. The son of Atlantean royalty and heir to the ocean throne, Aquaman’s allegiance is tested when his half-brother, Orm (Patrick Wilson), prepares to unite the seven kingdoms and wage war against the surface dwellers that threaten the oceans.

 

Amber Heard also stars as Mera, the daughter and future queen of the Xebel, an Atlantean tribe headed up by King Nereus, played by Dolph Lundgren. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will portray Black Manta, a ruthless mercenary treasure hunter and Aquaman’s greatest foe.

 

Aquaman has the ability to control the tides, communicate with other sea life, swim at supersonic speeds, and possess superhuman strength. It seems almost unfair to the bad guys that he gets a trident and scale armor to top it all off.

 

The film, which also stars Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman, swims into theaters on Dec. 21.
