Just ahead of the holiday, WB invited a number of outlets (not the Beat though! sighhhh) to see an advance screening of Aquaman well ahead of its debut later next month. Today, they were allowed to share their “social media sentiment”, as it’s called in the biz these days, and while no one can share plot details – you get a pretty good sense of where things are going from the below tweets. I’ve tried my best to collect as many as I could find over the short 15 minute period when the embargo lifted…and just from the below, you get a pretty wide range, but cartoony and goofy pop up a few times. I mean, it’s Aquaman though, a little bit of silliness is totally par for the course.

To be honest with you, I’ve been getting a serious Big Trouble in Little China vibe from this thing, especially the last few images and trailers that just seem to scream “80’s action Kurt Russell”. That’s the kind of genre riff I’m here for.

  1. This looks awful to me – like most comic book movies – and I’m not surprised.

    I hope the people who see it enjoy it.

    If it’s as funny as “Big Trouble” — a movie that a lot of people hated in the ’80s, because they went expecting a “serious” action movie a la Rambo — I’ll probably like it.

    And the CGI does look cartoony, as I noted months ago. Not sure why they didn’t just dump the actors and make the whole thing animated.

  3. These advance twitter comments always read like studio PR.

    I remember how excited nerds were over “Snakes on a Plane,” too …
