Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled to open in theaters on December 20, 2023.
Starring Jason Momoa as the title character, the first Aquaman movie was released in December of 2019 and grossed a massive $1.148 billion worldwide. The film earned $335 million at domestic theaters and $813.4 million from international markets.
Aquaman is the origin story of half-surface dweller, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry that 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 action-packed adventure spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas. Aquaman was rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language.
For Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Amber Heard will be back as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna.
The sequel comes to us from DC Films, The Safran Company, and Atomic Monster Productions.
James Wan directed the first film from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Will Beall, story by Geoff Johns & Wan and Will Beall, based on characters created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger for DC.
The film was produced by Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada serving as executive producers.
Wan’s team behind the scenes included such frequent collaborators as Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess, Wan’s five-time editor Kirk Morri, production designer Bill Brzeski, and visual effects supervisor Kelvin McIlwain. They were joined by costume designer Kym Barrett and composer Rupert Gregson-Williams.
