Posted 2017/10/21 0 0
Filming has finally wrapped on the “Aquaman” film!
On October 20th, stars Jason Momoa and Amber Heard took to their Instagram accounts to announce that they have finished filming the movie. The Aquaman filming took place at the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia, with extensive filming accomplished at Village Roadshow Studios. Filming also took place in Newfoundland, Sicily and Tunisia. With the movie wrapping, there will be plenty of time for post-production and the CGI needed to bring an underwater movie to life. Aquaman hits theaters on December 21, 2018.
And just recently, Total Film spoke to Momoa about what his solo movie will hold, and he stated that it is a full origin story for his character. Although he is already an established warrior by the time Justice League rolls around, he isn’t the king yet and won’t be until Aquaman ends. So even though audiences will be familiar with the hero, this will be where they get to see him grow.
“It’s the whole origin story, for sure. You’ll see young Arthur and everything. It goes from before he was born…it’s the whole mythology of it.
It’s unbelievable where we start in this movie, and where we end up. Right now, I’m [filming] all the end stuff and it’s pretty insane. I hate comparing things, but when I watch Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, you see all these amazing worlds and the places they go, and you watch Star Wars and they do battles in space. Well, what do you think is going to happen underwater? There are so many cool worlds we’re going to, and my character definitely goes on a big adventure and you travel the world with him.”
Aquaman is directed by James Wan, with a screenplay by Will Beall, from a story by Wan and Geoff Johns, and stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, and Nicole Kidman. Aquaman will be the second live action theatrical film featuring the titular character, following his debut in 2017's Justice League. The film tells the story of Arthur Curry, the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, who must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.
The film is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures on December 21, 2018.
