JASON MOMOA RETURNS TO THE GOLD COAST AND SYDNEY TO BRING AQUAMAN TO FANS AND MOVIEGOERS IN AUSTRALIA
Warner Bros. Pictures and Roadshow Films are thrilled to announce that Jason Momoa will visit the Gold Coast and Sydney as part of his cross-continent tour to support his upcoming action-packed adventure Aquaman.
Momoa, who stars in the title role of the much-anticipated new film, will greet fans and walk the blue carpet on the Gold Coast on the 18th of December, and in Sydney the following evening. Momoa will also attend press events in Sydney on the 19th and 20th December.
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.
The film also stars Amber Heard (“Justice League,” “Magic Mike XXL”) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Spider-Man 2”) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” films, “Watchmen”) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Netflix’s “The Get Down”) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Lion”) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
Wan directs from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (“The Conjuring 2”) and Will Beall (“Gangster Squad,” TV’s “Training Day”), story by Geoff Johns & James Wan and Will Beall, based on characters from DC, Aquaman created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger. The film is produced by Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada serving as executive producers.
Proudly supported by the Queensland Government via Screen Queensland. Aquaman filmed extensively at Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast, on location in South East Queensland, in addition to Newfoundland.
The film is set to hit cinemas in Australia and New Zealand on the 26th December 2018, and is being released in2D, 3D, 4D, Dolby Cinema and ScreenX in select theatres and IMAX worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
