If you’re planning on catching Aquaman in the IMAX format, then director James Wan has some exciting news for you as the filmmaker has revealed that “roughly 90%” of the movie has been shot using IMAX technology.
DC movies have always been at the forefront of the IMAX format, with Christopher Nolan shooting around half an hour of footage for 2008’s The Dark Knight using IMAX cameras. Since then, we’ve seen their use increasing in big budget Hollywood productions, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League incorporating IMAX scenes, and the Russo brothers shooting the entirity of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War with IMAX cameras.
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.”
Aquaman is directed by James Wan (The Conjuring) and stars Jason Momoa as the titular hero, reprising his role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, along with Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Dr. Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Ludi Lin as Murk, Michael Beach as Jesse Kane, Djimon Hounsou as the Fisherman King, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, Otis Dhanji as a young Arthur Curry, Julie Andrews as Karathen and Graham McTavish in an as-yet-unrevealed role. It is set for release on December 14th in the UK and December 21st in North America.
