Has Jason Momoa got a whale of a tale for you!
All of Atlantis -- Aquaman himself (Momoa), Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Matten and Nicole freakin' Kidman, along with director James Wan -- dropped into Comic-Con's Hall H on Saturday, creating a splash with the debut of the first trailer for Warner Bros. and DC's upcoming under-the-sea adventure, Aquaman.
"My opening shot in the film is washing up on a rock," Kidman informed the crowd. (This is her very first Comic-Con, by the way.) "I got to lay there with massive waves crashing over me, and I'm, like, 'The bigger, the better. C'mon, James! Give it to me!' That's why I'm doing this movie."
The preview is packed with sea dragons and armored sharks and Kidman as a mermaid queen, i.e., everything we want from an Aquaman movie. Watch the trailer now:
Here is the movie's official synopsis:
"From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, AQUAMAN, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him 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.
The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Willem Dafoe as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as the vengeful Black Manta; and Nicole Kidman as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry."
