AQUA­MAN

Out 14 De­cem­ber

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Film­mak­ers from Kevin Cost­ner to Wolf­gang Petersen have strug­gled with their wa­ter works (not like that), but there are rea­sons to feel buoy­ant about the DCEU’s ocean dip. A look or 20 at the trail­ers re­veals a romp packed with pi­rates, princesses, sexy tats, aquar­ium trips and pleas­ingly bad puns about “some­thing deeper”. Once you fac­tor in Bond-ian sky­dives, Raiders-style ar­chae­o­log­i­cal finds, Avatar-es­que prog-rock un­der­sea worlds, Ponyostyle wave-races and Moana-sized crabs, it’s al­most as if the whole screen is roar­ing “Awe­some!”, not just Ja­son Mo­moa. Short of the ex-GOT star boil­ing some­one’s bonce in melted gold, it’s hard to see what more you could ask for. Ride that sea­horse to last is­sue for our “BAAAD-ASSS” in­ter­view haul.
