“Aquaman” Runtime & Tidal Wave Talk

Aquaman Runtime Tidal Wave Talk

The runtime for James Wan’s “Aquaman” film has been revealed with the mostly underwater adventure film clocking in at 143 minutes – just six minutes shy of “Wonder Woman”.

With the DC Comics adaptation effectively complete, reports have gone up in the last few days that the finished cut has been tested and received a very positive response with the tone of the film drawing “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp” comparisons. Critics reviews aren’t expected for a few more weeks.

A new photo, which you can see above, has also landed online and shows Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry surrounded by a tidal wave. EW premiered the photo and included some comments from Wan about both the shot and the five-minute sizzle reel released last month with its stellar one take action sequence involving running on rooftops:

“The context of that photo is basically the Atlantic coastline is being hit by tidal waves and it’s not actually an attack from Atlantis but a warning sign of what’s to come. It’s basically a message from King Orm [Patrick Wilson] and he’s throwing our warships and waste back onto the land.

The trailer and images don’t really do it justice. The crazy part is there’s so much movie, what’s out there has barely scratched the surface. That’s the crazy thing is that one long take shot that everybody seems excited about in the trailer, that’s only half the shot. And it doesn’t have the context of how it comes to play.”

“Aquaman” begins its global rollout in early-mid December ahead of a December 21st U.S. launch.
