With Aquaman just over a month away from hitting theaters domestically, we have actually had quite a lot of details about this movie already. Adding to the many TV spots and trailers, we also had an extended scene from the movie released in its entirety. Adding to this farther, Warner Bros have now released an extended BTS featurette which gives a detailed glimpse in to the making of Aquaman. The video above has interviews with director James Wan and stars Jason Momoa and Amber Heard.
I guess what surprised me most here was the amount of practical sets they used considering so much CGI is required for the underwater scenes. However, at this point with exactly one month until the movie releases in my neck of the woods and not long after in the U.S., I am wondering why they are giving us so much information. I know they need to sell the movie, they cannot afford another Justice League, but you can totally oversell it as well and give the fans so much they feel like they have already seen the movie.
Hopefully, from this point out they can stick to small TV spots which only briefly highlight what’s going on in this movie. I think it’s going to be opening weekend for me anyway, just for the visual candy if nothing more. Though I still have my reservations over whether James Wan can move from the Fast & Furious franchise into something like this. But fingers crossed as any early reactions we have heard so far seem positive, though it’s far too early to tell on that front. Check out the official synopsis for Aquaman
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breath-taking 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.
