Rumor: Here’s When We’ll See The First Aquaman Trailer

If you’re even remotely familiar with the character of Aquaman, then you’re well aware of how he’s not the useless wimp that shows like The Big Bang Theory and Family Guy make him out to be. In fact, he’s quite badass, something that Jason Momoa has already gotten across with his scene stealing performance in Justice League.

Because of that, Arthur Curry’s first solo flick is one of our most anticipated superhero films to roll out in 2018, an excitement that was doubled upon hearing how the first audiences to have attended test screenings praised the action and emotion they witnessed. Really, if this holds up, Warner Bros. could have a Wonder Woman-like hit on their hands.

Championed as a “totally different beast” to what’s come out of the DC Extended Universe already, James Wan’s pic promises to inject some much-needed fresh blood

Young Sheldon review: he’s an irritating little smartypants – but he’s headed for something Big one day

There are plenty of laughs in this prequel to The Big Bang Theory, but the emotional punches are only threatened, and never land

East Texas, 1989, and a nine-year-old boy is playing with his train set. Not so much for the love of trains but because it allows him to demonstrate Newton’s first law of motion, that an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by another force. This little boy will become a physicist one day.

“Dinner’s ready,” the boy’s mum calls out. He doesn’t go down, until his twin sister threatens to lick his toothbrush if he doesn’t. He has a thing about cleanliness: he puts on mittens before holding hands with his family to thank God for the food they are about to receive (Mum’s into Him – God, that is).
