Jason Momoa Shines in an Extended Preview for WB's 'Aquaman' Movie
"In this trident resides the power of Atlantis…" Are you ready for this? Don't be so harsh on it. Warner Bros has debuted an extended 5-minute preview for James Wan's Aquaman movie, following the full trailer from Comic-Con this summer. This preview dives deep into all kinds of footage, and it looks like it's getting better as they get closer to release. The character of Aquaman, also known as Arthur Curry, first appeared in Zack Snyder's Justice League movie, and this solo feature takes place after the events of that movie. Jason Momoa stars as DC's Aquaman, with Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Randall Park, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Willem Dafoe, Graham McTavish, Temuera Morrison, Michael Beach, Ludi Lin, and featuring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta. Even though there's tons of CGI all over this, it still looks cool. The final epic action sequence in this preview is honestly quite awesome. Fire it up below.
Here's the full extended preview (+ new poster) for James Wan's Aquaman, direct from WB's YouTube:
Following the events of the Justice League movie, Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa), the reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, is caught in a battle between surface dwellers that threaten his oceans and his own people, who are ready to lash out and invade the surface. Aquaman is directed by Australian filmmaker James Wan, director of the films Saw, Dead Silence, Death Sentence, Insidious, The Conjuring, Insidious: Chapter 2, Furious 7, and The Conjuring 2 most recently. The screenplay is written by Will Beall, from a story by James Wan, Geoff Johns, and Will Beall. Based on the DC Comics character created by Mort Weisinger and Paul Norris. Warner Bros will release James Wan's Aquaman in theaters everywhere starting on December 21st during the holidays later this year. Looking good? Who's excited to see this in theaters?
A lot of this still looks aggressively average but there were some damn solid scenes here. That rooftop, long cut scene being the standout. And of course the suit at the end. I'll be seeing this opening week no matter what.

Idk man. I've been so jaded by B v. S and Justice League. I want to like this, but the line delivery and CGI is kind of cringey. I was beginning to be hopeful with that "one take" tracking shot across the rooftops, but then it kind of petered out into something "meh". Maybe I'm wrong, but my gut tells me this will be all flash with minimal substance. All things said, Mamoa is an awesome Aquaman. I kinda wish they went for the Justice League animated series look rather than the traditional comic book look though...

Only a miracle will stop this from flopping. In all fairness, it would be extremely hard for any studio to make a good Aquaman movie, it's one of the lamest superheroes ever created.

LOL...this is going to be bad.

This looks like a ton of fun! Can't wait... what? Seriously, it looks kinda funny, lotsa sea creatures, a big battle, Nicole Kidman, Jason Mamoa. How can you watch this preview and knock it?

It's interesting that people like Dolph Lundgren are participating in big production films these days again. Good for them ...

Never thought I would be on board for this...I agree with Seboso that Aquaman is a lame character...but this looks like an ambitious, fun movie!

I like Jason Momoa so more than willing to give this a go, especially as its got a very similar vibe to Wonder Woman. Hell I would love to see him return as Conan if I'm to be honest.
