Trailer – “Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom”

Warner Bros. has released the official trailer for James Wan’s “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” starring Jason Momoa, Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Randall Park, Temuera Morrison & Nicole Kidman. The film will have its theatrical release on December 20th, 2023.

Plot Synopsis: Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.

What do you all think of the trailer? Looks like your typical superhero action film to me. Unfortunately, there’s not much else to add here as this trailer gave us nothing from a marketing standpoint we haven’t seen before within this genre. This has been in development for much longer than expected following the success of the first “Aquaman” film, and much like “The Flash,” I think audiences have most likely moved on and lost considerable interest. The visuals look expansive and could be a Best Visual Effects contender based on how much is on display. It will need positive reviews to achieve box office success, but given James Gunn and the rest of the DC fandom are ready to move on (not to mention the growing animosity for this film keeping its release date while “Dune: Part Two” was forced to move to 2024), I feel that will be a struggle.
