Aquaman is a 2018 American superhero film based on the same-named DC Comics character. It is the sixth film in the DC Extended Universe, produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Entertainment, and Peter Safran Productions, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures (DCEU). James Wan directed the picture, which was based on a script written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Will Beall. It stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, who sets out to govern Atlantis’ underwater realm and prevent his half-brother, King Orm, from unifying the seven underwater kingdoms to destroy the surface world. Supporting actors include Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, and Nicole Kidman.
The project began in 2004 but did not gain traction until the release of Man of Steel in 2013. Beall and Kurt Johnstad were hired in August 2014 to develop competing scripts. In April 2015, Wan agreed to helm the film, and in July 2016, Beall’s screenplay was approved. Throughout 2016 and early 2017, the primary cast was announced. Principal photography began in May 2017 on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, at Village Roadshow Studios, with additional production teams in Canada, Italy, and Morocco. Filming ended in October of that year. Several manufacturers produced visual effects, which included everything from high-detail hair simulations to CGI animals and environments.
On November 26, 2018, Aquaman premiered in London and was released on December 21 in the United States. It was the highest-earning DCEU picture, the highest-grossing film based on a DC Comics character, the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2018, and the 24th-highest-grossing film of all time, grossing $1.148 billion globally. Visual effects, production design, tone, action sequences, Momoa’s performance, and Wan’s direction were all praised, while the plot and runtime were panned. Aquaman: King of Atlantis, an animated miniseries based on the film, ran from October 14 to October 28, 2021, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, a live-action sequel film, will be released on March 17, 2023.
