Warner Bros. just dropped another trailer of the much-awaited AQUAMAN slated for a December 21 release. This one seems cool and gives us glimpses of the origin story. Looking at this and the previous extended trailer, the film is expected to do really well and hopefully DC and James Wan register a win.
The new trailer also shows Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, the mentor of Arthur. Vulko has been training him since he was a child. The music score in the trailer also sounds great – hopefully the same stays in the film. [This post is updated on November 20, to include the second trailer.]
Director James Wan in a tweet says that the recent movie trailers of the much-awaited AQUAMAN “… contains spoilers by nature. So, if you don’t want anything spoilt, don’t see it.” But he also said that — “this 5-min trailer barely scratches the surface of the actual movie.”
Well, the five-minute trailer has shown a lot and promises an action-packed adventure. I’m sure the movie would be visually breathtaking, especially those underwater scenes. Starring Jason Momoa in the title role, AQUAMAN will show the basic origin story and even more.
The film narrates the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry – the son of a human lighthouse keeper and the Atlantean queen (Nicole Kidman). The film takes Arthur on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.
I guess DC has done a great job by releasing this extended trailer. This looks awesome and I would certainly find the biggest IMAX screen when it hits theatre. AQUAMAN is set for a December 21 release.
