According to the outlet Digital Spy, Warner Bros. has moved up the release date for their impending superhero standalone feature, Aquaman — but only in the U.K. (so far). There, the release date has moved up to December 14 from its previous December 21 release date.
As of this writing, there has been no confirmation as to whether or not this means they’ll be pushing up the release date of the film in the U.S. as well. However, given the studio’s tendency to have their films release in those countries on the same day, it’s likely only a matter of time before that is the case.
On the whole, it’s not a bad move. December is a pretty packed month, with Mortal Engines and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hitting theaters on the 14th, Alita: Battle Angel and Bumblebee hitting on the 21st, and Mary Poppins Returns and an untitled WB event film hitting on the 26th.
Things are packed enough as it is, and in all honesty, it may be in their best interest just to vacate December altogether. However, by pushing it early, it at least distances itself from its own film sot hat they don’t cannibalize each other at the box office.
