Aquaman: The Final Trailer Sails In

We've had a few trailers for Aquaman up to this point, including the extended version you'd think would mark the end point of the campaign. But with the movie less than a month away, here comes the seemingly standard "final" look, TV spots and clips notwithstanding.

This is the sort of trailer that director James Wan can roll out for a film like this now that it's wrapped and the effects are in – lots of big shots of Atlantis and sea creatures being used in battle.

The focus, of course, remains Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry, a man destined to help unite those above and those deep beneath the sea, even if his life experiences to this point have soured him on the idea of ruling Atlantis. But the various underwater kingdoms need him, especially now that his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) is moving with his own plan to unite the factions and deliver a little payback to the polluting, destructive world above.

So we're treated to scenes of a young Arthur training with Willem Dafoe's Vulko and even a jokey nod to fan outcry at Aquaman sporting a five-pronged trident in Justice League.

With Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren and Djimon Hounsou also in the cast, Aquaman will be in UK cinemas on 12 December.
