    Mm....might as well not watch Aquaman. The lengthy trailers tell the whole story. :p

    I'd be surprised if this gets same critical response as Wonder Woman. It has a Transformers/Harry Potter special effects driven movie feel.

    Having said that, I am happy that James Wan is borrowing heavily from Geoff Johns' Aquaman run. It will make the Aquaman fanboy in me happy.

    Please please I hope Amber Heard doesn't suck.

    Warners Brother / DC giving advanced screenings ( to Amazon Prime members) at least a week before the regular screenings makes me think that studio is extremely confident that this will be good. Let's hope it is.

    It looks good. But I think they're giving away too much of the story in the trailers again...

    Thanks to the Amazon Prime advance screening... I think the execs are not as confident...

    For those outside the PHL, this is how the year will look like by end of 2018

    With No Star Wars, 4 Movies Are Fighting For The Same December 2018 Release Date | Screen Rant

    Aquaman
    Bumblebee
    Holmes and Watson
    Alita: Battle Angel

    Locally, it will also compete with Fantastica and Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles :)

    I believe Alita Battle Angel has moved it's release date to Feb. next year. You can add Mary Poppins Returns (Dec. 19), Mortal Engines ( Dec. 14), Spider-Man : Into the Spider-Verse ( Dec. 14) and the Once Upon a Deadpool (Dec. 21) to that list. Busy month for Hollywood. ;)
    FYI. There's an advance screening of Spiderman this weekend in Singapore.

    Hope we can catch Bumblebee and Spider-Man before Christmas and New Year!!!

    Just watched Aquaman last night.

    Very fun film... One of those films you have to see on the big screen.

    Hmm. Watched all tree movies. I enjoyed all of them but I enjoyed Aquaman the least. Don’t get me wrong, had fun watching Aquaman on IMAX but Spider-Man inmho is the best comicbook movie of 2018. Yep ahead of Infinity War, Black Phanter and Deadpool. And Bumblebee is the best Transformers movie since the 80s animation movie.

    A little bit off-topic but with the success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse, I hope this would urge WB to do the same. The WB DC Animated films in the past were already superior to the DCEU films.

    If Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck are both out, a Superman/Batman animated movie set within the DCEU could redeem their characters and "reboot" the direction of the DCEU.

    Hmm. They already did that a few years back. Superman / Batman: Public Enemies, based on the same comic arc. But it was straight to video.

    It’s nominated and has my vote for the Oscar for best animated film.
