Final Trailer For DC’s ‘Aquaman’ Has Arrived

Published

on

Jason Momoa sets out on an epic quest for the Trident of Atlantis in the second Aquaman trailer.

“From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman”, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. 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.”

Wan spoke about his vision for the popular DC character.

“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally, story-wise, it’s my own take. It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”

Aquaman will be in theaters December 21.

The Stakes Are High In The First Trailer For ‘The Informer’

Published

on

Aviron Pictures has released the first trailer for their upcoming thriller The Informer.

In the film, honorably discharged Special Ops soldier Pete Koslow’s (Joel Kinnaman) world is turned upside-down when he is jailed after a fight to protect his wife (Ana de Armas). He’s given a chance for early release by becoming an informant for the FBI (Academy Award nominees Rosamund Pike and Clive Owen) and using his covert skills in an operation to take down The General, the most powerful crime boss in New York. But when the FBI sting meant to finally earn Koslow his freedom results in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Koslow finds himself caught in the crossfire between the mob and the FBI. The General insists Koslow takes the heat and sends him back to prison to spearhead a drug operation from inside, and the FBI affirms that going back to jail to do The General’s bidding is the only way for Koslow to keep his deal with them alive.

The Informer hits theaters March 22, 2019. Joel Kinnaman stars with Rosamund Pike, Clive Owen, Common, and Ana de Armas.
