A brand new extended TV spot for Warner Bros. and DC’s Aquaman is filled with new footage that doubles down on the high-octane underwater action.
Many may consider James Wan to be a horror filmmaker but he has shown that he is more than capable of directing action. Aside from directing the 2007 Kevin Bacon action-thriller Death Sentence, Wan also directed a little movie called Furious Seven, which featured some of the most insane action of the entire The Fast and the Furious franchise. Echoes of that exciting action from Furious Seven are very visible in the latest footage from Wan’s upcoming film Aquaman.
Aquaman has been in production for a few years and the new extended TV spot truly shows off why the film took so long to make. The exotic locations, giant monsters, action scenes that somehow feel like a mix of Mission: Impossible and James Cameron’s Avatar. The mix between up-close and personal hand-to-hand combat and CGI enhanced battles proves worthy of the big screen in the latest TV spot, which fans can check out below, via Comicbook.com.
Aquaman is facing a very crowded weekend when it releases in the U.S. on December 21st. The DC solo adventure opens the same day as The Deadpool Before Christmas and Bumblebee, a few days after Mary Poppins Returns, and one week after Mortal Engines and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Despite such a crowded weekend of highly-anticipated films, this extended TV spot proves that DC’s latest certainly has a fighting chance of making big waves at the box office this holiday season.
