You know, I have some friends who have seen Aquaman when press was recently flown out there for a special screening, sadly I am not one of those people as of yet – and while I’m still trying to read their faces like Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm; I, like you, have to tide myself (get it?) over with the latest trailer, which..dare I say it? Looks pretty solid. If nothing else, it looks very colorful, which is a nice showcase of how far we’ve come with DC on film in these recent years.
James Wan, the man has visual chops, there’s no denying it. There’s an impressive amount of design work being done here, and the action looks pretty top notch. The script will tell the tale, but it’s clear this will be a “see it on the biggest screen you can” type experience. Also, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master gave me serious heart-eyes.
We’ll see if I make the press screening for this one. I’ll be in Hawaii right around the time it’s supposed to come out. Fair trade, yeah?
