Early Catch And Release For Aquaman
Comic fans are going to have to whip out their flippers a bit earlier than anticipated. Aquaman, the latest film in DC Comic’s Movie-verse, has bumped up its Australian and UK release date. The movie will now be released on December 14th, a week ahead of its previously announced day of December 21st. Aquaman’s release schedule has moved several times throughout the year. The US release alone has changed three times. The original date was July 27th, which was pushed back to October 5th, which was further pushed back to the most recent December 21st. There is no news on if the US date will be earlier as well. However, its most recent date was the same as the UK’s initial date (December 21st). Thus, it could be possible that the US is getting a bump too.
Furthermore, the December 14th release date would be more convenient for Aquaman in terms of competition. The only real hitter premiering that December 14th weekend is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. To be fair, Spiderman is a very popular franchise and there is a lot of hype for the animated film. Yet, this one superhero movie may not be as daunting as trying to go against Bumblebee and Alita: Battle Angel on December 21st. Aquaman’s early release on a less packed weekend may lead to a larger audience and a bigger payout.
The OG King Trident
Aquaman stars the titular character in a new adventure. After the events of Justice League, the reluctant king of Atlantis must defend his home from land invaders. His plight will have him face enemies old and new, including his archnemesis Black Manta. I enjoyed Jason Momoa in Justice League, so I am looking forward to seeing how he stands on his own.
