The DC superhero team movie, produced at a budget of $300 million and expected to be their answer to Marvel's Avengers, ended up being the lowest grossing film of the series.
To act as a bit of an apology - or at least defuse some of the "aquward" feelings involved - HBO has released a parody video cobbled together from actual scenes of Entourage in which their star sits down with his friends to watch his premiere as Aquaman. only to see Jason Momoa crashing through rooftops and saving the day. The James Wan film has been the No. 1 movie internationally for two weeks. And Aquaman is a test of the single superhero formula. Speaking to Collider, the actor said: "I love Flash".
"I'm terrified of needles", says Jason Momoa, the 39-year-old Hawaiian-born, Iowa-raised man mountain who first caught the eye as the Dothraki warrior prince Khal Drogo in season one of Game of Thrones (though he in fact made his screen debut years before that, in the Hawaiian Baywatch spin-off). I realized, wow, his character resides in this insane, big world, and I could do something very interesting with it.
Until the release of Aquaman, Wonder Woman was the only film that did not receive sharp criticism. So I thought I could make "Aquaman" a genre film, meaning a horror monster movie.
And before you ask, yes, we did question exactly what Momoa's idea for an Aquaman sequel entailed, but he stopped short of dishing any details, joking that it would "ruin the movie". It is a big relief to DC Films as its previous film, Justice League, failed to make much of an impression.
Do you think James Wan made the right direction by choosing Aquaman over The Flash? The film's performance in key global market has got itself the title of the number one movie internationally during the December 14 weekend, ahead of its U.S. debut on December 21, according to a Box Office Mojo report.
