Aquaman, which has already set the Chinese box office on fire, is still a few days away from its domestic release. In order to create hyper among fans for the film, Warner Bros and DC films have released a promotional video clip which features Aquaman B-roll footage and some behind-the-scenes clips.
The footage begins with Jason Momoa, who plays the DC underwater superhero, enjoying some behind the scene moments with his co-stars. Momoa can be seen donning Aquaman’s comic accurate orange and green costume while filming some major fight scenes with Patrick Wilson’s Orm. The fight involves some amazing action shots which the actors can be seen performing using support wires. Momoa can also be seen facing off Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta.
Amber Heard’s Mera can be seen through the footage, posing with Momoa and talking with Aquaman director James Wan as they work on set. You can check out Aquaman B-roll footage video.
Aquaman has already earned more than $260 million in the global box office, despite not opening in the U.S. until Friday. So far the film has grossed $189 million in China alone, making it the country’s fourth highest-grossing superhero movie ever and second-highest-grossing Warner Bros. film of all time.
Well, it seems Shazam! director David F. Sandberg is also in awe of Aquaman. Sandberg took to Twitter on Monday to share his review of the film, revealing that it had some of the most amazing visuals he has ever seen.
“Man, #Aquaman was epic! Some of the most spectacular action and visuals ever!,” the Shazam! director wrote.
The film’s box office success is quite important for WB especially after 2017’s Justice League, which disappointed fans as well as critics.
During an interview with Gizmodo, when director James Wan was asked if Justice League’s debacle had any impact on the making of Aquaman, he said he was completely unaffected.
“I wasn’t really affected in any way at all,” Wan said. “I mean I think if there was weird stuff going on and crazy drama behind the scenes people would have reported everywhere.”
Aquaman will open in the U.S. on Dec. 21.
