The DC Extended Universe's next film Aquaman is a little over a month away from landing in theaters, but for some lucky fans that premiere date has just moved up.
According to ComicBook, Amazon is teaming up with Regal, Cinépolis, ArcLight, and a handful of other movie theater chains to offer early screenings exclusively for Amazon Prime members on December 15—almost a full week ahead of the film's official December 21 release date.
The hype is real for the Jason Momoa-led film. Unlike previous DC films that have flopped, such as Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League, Aquaman's early reviews have been very positive, and fans are excited to see what acclaimed director James Wan can bring with this new spin on the DC character.
Of course if the film does well, there will be room for sequels. And Momoa has already expressed a strong desire to keep the series going, even revealing that he has big plans for the next film (should it get made).
“Even when we were shooting Aquaman, I have the opening of Aquaman 2 ready, Momoa recently told SYFY WIRE. "I went in and pitched it to [producer Peter] Safran, and I pitched it to [Warner Bros. chairman] Toby Emmerich. They loved it. It’s awesome ... But yeah, I have plans for Aquaman 2.”
It's great to see a DC star so passionate about his role, especially considering one or two others (cough, Ben Affleck) seemed to want to jump ship when things didn't go as planned. So here's hoping that Aquaman is a smash, and that fans take advantage of these early screenings. The DCEU needs you!
