As per the official synopsis, the film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime-one that will not only force him to face who he really is but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be a king. Aquaman is the son of a human lighthouse keeper and the Atlantean queen (Nicole Kidman), making him the rightful heir to the throne. But in his marine journey, there are plenty of foes in his way, including Orm, the present King of Atlantis, and Black Manta, an armored mercenary and classic Aquaman foe.
Momoa, who is best known for playing Dothraki leader Khal Drogo in ‘Game of Thrones’, said Aquaman has been his toughest role till date.
“Aquaman is the hardest movie I’ ve done in my life, physically, and I had two stunt doubles. Both of them got hurt, and so did I. The sheer amount of stunts and action in this was insane,” he said.
A special extended five minutes footage of ‘Aquaman’ will be played with ‘Fantastic Beats: The Crimes of Grindelwald’.
‘Aquaman’ also features Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master and Nicole Kidman as Arthur’s mom, Atlanta.
The movie’s first trailer made a huge splash at San Diego Comic-Con in late July. As of early October, it’s been watched more than 40 million times.
The film will release in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu across cinemas in India in 3D and IMAX 3D.
