James Wan says Aquaman’s Atlantis scenes will be different from Justice League

For a lot of people Justice League has seemingly undone the good work of the Dceu’s trail blazing Amazonian, Wonder Woman. Aside from the lacklustre box-office returns, fans have been speculating about how it will shape the future of this troubled cinematic universe, with The Hollywood Reporter writing a think piece on the job that awaits James Wan’s in-the-can Jason Momoa blockbuster, Aquaman, which is set for release on Dec 21, 2018.

Most of the piece focuses on potential problems for the origin story, and what Amber Heard’s brief appearance as Mera means in terms of the source material, but what prompted the film’s director to take to Twitter was the sign off, which stated that “all James Wan and the rest of the Aqua-team needs to work out is how to have all the characters speak while underwater. There can’t be that many air bubbles under the sea after all.

Star Wars Battlefront II Review

Forget for a minute the talk of loot boxes, pay-to-win, and level-locked heroes, and understand that Star Wars Battlefront II rights so many wrongs created by the first attempt to bring back the storied game series that all of that can easily be overlooked. When it was announced that EA was bringing back the Star Wars Battlefront franchise, fans rejoiced. The original LucasArts series was beloved, as it allowed players to participate in some of the greatest ground battles in Star Wars history, across both the Prequel and Original Trilogy eras. And in the hands of a development studio like Dice, a new, revamped Star Wars Battlefront had all the makings for a success.

The first game hit consoles back in 2015 and immediately the problems began to show. There was no story mode, and the handful of multiplayer modes were quickly played through and grew stale. The promise of new

Jason Momoa Promises Aquaman Movie Has Guys Riding Sharks

Jason Momoa Promises Aquaman Movie Has Guys Riding Sharks
With Warner Bros.' Justice League hitting theaters in just a few weeks, the stars have started to do press, which has given Jason Momoa a new opportunity to shed some light on his Aquaman movie, hitting theaters on December 21, 2018. The actor just confirmed some very interesting details during a new interview, revealing there will be multiple versions of the young Arthur Curry character, one of whom is a teenage Arthur played by Otis Dhanji, and that there will be characters riding sharks. Here's what he had to say, revealing that the tone of this next DC adventure is a combination of an origin story, an epic battle and a road movie.

"In the story, we're going to see a couple different younger versions of me. And even before I was born, so you'll know where my mother came from, Atlantis. We've got to establish seven different kingdoms and the threat.

The Aquaman Solo Movie Will Feature Characters Riding Sharks; Jason Momoa Cites Star Wars As A Reference

While there are only three months separating Thor: Ragnarok and Marvel’s Black Panther spinoff, not to mention the relatively minuscule five-month gap between The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story, DC fans are bracing for the prolonged lull between Justice League and Aquaman.

The latter tentpole was once scheduled for July 27th, 2018, before being shoved back to December of the same year. As things stand, that’s a full 13 months after Justice League‘s theatrical release, but at least based on Jason Momoa’s recent comments, Aquaman may well be worth the wait.

ComicBook.com recently caught up with DC’s King of the Seven, who championed his standalone pic to be a “big road movie,” one that features characters riding sharks. Take our money, Warner Bros., take it all.

Surpassing Justice League, this moment in time is his call to become king. The only thing that

Halloween 2017: 11 Movies You Should Watch on Shudder

  • DailyDead
We’re in the last remaining days of October, meaning many of us will be trying to cram in as many horror movies as possible between now and Halloween. For my last round of Shudder picks this month, I thought I’d go with a much looser theme: there’s nothing that ties these titles together except that they’re really good movies I think you should watch. Some you may recognize, others may be less familiar to you. All of them are worth streaming on Shudder.

The Bride of Frankenstein (1935, dir. James Whale) It’s not officially October without the Universal Monsters, so big thanks to Shudder for adding most of the big ones to their expanding library of streaming options. There’s no wrong choice when it comes to the classics, but I’ll make the case that Universal never got better than The Bride of Frankenstein, James Whale

Jason Momoa Goes Under the Sea in Latest Look at Aquaman
It's been over five months since Aquaman started shooting in Australia, and while it remains to be seen when filming will wrap, a new video from the set has surfaced alongside more set photos, which tease some new armor for the title character. First off, there is a brief video from a local Australian news station, which shows Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and his queen Mera (Amber Heard) walking on the beach which is populated by a number of beach goers, none of whom seem to pay any attention to this couple, despite their rather colorful and elaborate outfits. While Mera's scaly green bodysuit is the same we've seen before, Aquaman's armor is brand new.

In the first part of this set video, which 7 News Gold Coast reports was shot in Currumbin, Australia, Aquaman is seen standing knee-deep in water on the shore, while forcefully grabbing Mera's arm. We can't hear what is being said,

Aquaman Artwork Offers A Fleeting Glimpse At Atlanna And The Ocean Master

New Mutants isn’t the only 2018 blockbuster to be tinged with horror; as Hollywood veteran Willem Dafoe noted late last week, Warner’s hotly-anticipated Aquaman is also steeped in the genre of shrill music and jump-scares, which isn’t all that surprising given it’s coming by way of The Conjuring mastermind, James Wan.

Placing Jason Momoa’s King of the Seven front and center, the Aquaman standalone pic has naturally taken a backseat to Justice League, which will find Momoa’s Atlantean rubbing shoulders with Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and The Flash late next month. There’s also the resurrection of Superman to consider, though we imagine Zack Snyder’s DC blockbuster will spend time establishing the titular team before drafting Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel into the fight.

And similar to how Batman V Superman introduced Gal Gadot’s Amazonian before the arrival of Wonder Woman, Snyder

Film Review: ‘The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One’

Film Review: ‘The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One’
Despite its strenuously portentous title, which some might mistake for a herald of wink-wink satire, “The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One” is a straight-faced and serviceable sci-fi action-adventure set on a distant planet where corporate overloads exploit hard-bitten convicts as slave laborers for colonization efforts — and human guinea pigs for bioengineering experiments.

From her vantage point in a floating headquarters high above the wild world, Exor company executive General Lynex (Rachel Griffiths) appraises the progress of settlement construction — and encourages the mad-scientist activities of Warden Mordain (Temuera Morrison), who’s been charged with transforming part of his prison’s population into monsters programmed “to kill or assimilate indigenous species.” Evidently, Exor plays by the same rule book as the Umbrella Corp. in the “Resident Evil” franchise and Weyland-Yutani in the “Alien” movies.

When things go wrong, as they always do in pulpy scenarios such as this one, and the monsters are inadvertently freed during a

James Wan talks Aquaman stigma, casting Dolph Lundgren and the film’s technical challenges

It’s still incredible to think that, not only do we have formidable looking live-action Aquaman, but a James Wan directed Aquaman solo movie is releasing next year.

Ten years ago this would have seemed unlikely. Of all of the comic book characters spawned over the decades, Aquaman has always seemed the most frequently jabbed at. For years people have said that Aquaman can’t work on screen due to the characters less-than-useful powers: How is communicating with fish useful in any scenario that isn’t taking place in the ocean?

So what does Aquaman director James Wan think of the stigma attached to the character? In an interview with The Wrap, Wan suggests not getting on this particular Aquaman’s bad side:

“Momoa is not a guy that you would go up to and make fun of. I really think you immediately remove any of the stigma of the

Mera’s On The Run In New Aquaman Set Photo

Australia’s famous Gold Coast has been playing host to Aquaman for the past few months, and during that time, budding DC fans have largely been kept in the loop thanks to a steady stream of set photos, not to mention those leaked videos showcasing Jason Momoa’s King of the Seven (and his co-stars!) in action.

Behind the lens for this one is James Wan, the esteemed filmmaker and all-around horror maestro who first made a name for himself through micro-budget scarefests in the vein of The Conjuring and Insidious. It didn’t take long before Hollywood executives took notice of Wan’s immense talent, either – Universal appointed him at the helm of Furious 7, which became the first entry in the petrolhead saga to cruise past $1 billion at the global box office.

The director has a great deal of experience in the blockbuster genre, then, and for Aquaman,
