From the same director that brought Avatar to the big screen, James Wan is once again creating a miracle with his take on DC’s Aquaman.

From the comics, Aquaman, known by his peers as Arthur Curry, is a half-human, half-Atlantean who dives deep into the ocean to claim his birthright. His journey will take him for an adventure that will make him realize just who he really is as well as what his existence is worth.

Brought by Warner Bros., Aquaman promises jaw-dropping visuals, clever underwater fighting sequence, and cool world-building details. James Wan’s use of amazing videography techniques and artistic cinematography is making DC fans excited. Perhaps this is the breakaway film DC needs to rise from the ashes of its previous movie flops? A fan will just have to watch the film to find out.

Starring Jason Momoa as the titular superhero Aquaman, Wan has made an excellent job at putting together a powerful ensemble that includes Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Djimon Hounsou, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Michael Beach, Ludi Lin, and many others. Aquaman will hit the theaters this December 21.
