New Aquaman TV Spot is a Whale of Time

We are officially under two months away from the premiere of James Wan’s Aquaman. As we swim towards the December 21 release, Warner Bros. is releasing a bounty of TV spots for Wan’s ambitious epic. We’ve seen a couple of rubes get in Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa)’s face in this spot, while the 5-minute long trailer released during New York Comic Con gave us our most extended look yet the story, as well as the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. Now a new spot gives us a few glimpses of fresh footage, including the film’s antagonist, Curry’s half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), summon a pod of whales from the sea. This new video makes clear the stakes in Aquaman, with Amber Heard’s Mera calling on Curry to return to Atlantis to save the kingdom from war. Orm, who means to be king, is dragging Atlantis towards its own destruction; unless Curry is willing to take on the role of Aquaman and be the hero Atlantis needs.

Check out the new spot here:

Here’s the film’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.

Joining Momoa, Stewart and Heard are Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe as Vulko, counsel to the Atlantean throne; Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as the Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna.
