AQUAMAN | Official Trailer Debut from 2018 San Diego Comic-Can Panel

IMG_1367

Hey there, movie lovers!

The highly anticipated trailer for AQUAMAN made a splash at Comic-Con this past weekend and . . . yes, just yes. Jason Momoa reprises his role as Aquaman aka Arthur Curry from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, and I’m stoked to see him take on the lead role in this one!

SYNOPSIS: Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.

I have to admit, I was waiting for Ariel and King Triton to appear on the screen during the trailer haha. While Amber Heard’s character, Mera, certainly fits the description of Ariel, AQUAMAN is in a league of its own when it comes to underwater worlds. This looks so much better than I was expecting!

Check out some exclusive pics via Entertainment Weekly and then catch the trailer below! Let me know your thoughts. Do you think this will be a standout film for Momoa and the DC Universe?

 

AQUAMAN hits theaters December 21, 2018!

You can also grab yourself a copy of Entertainment Weekly, which features two exclusive AQUAMAN covers seen below:

Enter to Win! ‘Big Stone Gap’ Prize Pack

Movie fans. I’ve got a couple of BIG STONE GAP prize packs to give away…but before you can enter my contest…check out the news below.

Big Stone Gap

PICTUREHOUSE TO RELEASE ‘BIG STONE GAP’ IN HOUSTON WITH NOVEMBER 6 EXPANSION

Houston, TX—November 2, 2015— Following the film’s national release on October 9, Picturehouse is expanding BIG STONE GAP into additional Texas markets with a November 6 release.

Opening theaters in Houston include:

Edwards Greenway 24
AMC First Colony 24
AMC Studio 30

Santikos Silverado Stadium 19 (Tomball)

BIG STONE GAP was written and directed by best-selling author Adriana Trigiani (The Shoemakers Wife) with an all-star cast led by Ashley Judd and featuring Patrick Wilson, Whoopi Goldberg, John Benjamin Hickey, Jane Krakowski, Anthony La Paglia and Jenna Elfman.

Adriana Trigiani, in her debut as screenwriter/director, brings her best-selling novel BIG STONE GAP to the movies. Shot entirely on location in Trigiani and Wilson’s hometown in the southwest corner of Virginia and set in 1978, the film brings to vivid life the story of proud working people and their lives in a coal-mining town nestled in the Appalachian Mountains.

The movie was produced by Academy Award winner Donna Gigliotti (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK,) and James Spies. The cinematography is by Reynaldo Villalobos. The original music is by John Leventhal. Costumes are by Debra McGuire. Executive producers are J.E.Craig and Jean Morrissey.

Set in 1978, BIG STONE GAP tells the story of the ever-ordinary Ave Maria Mulligan (Ashley Judd) who lives a simple life with her mother, runs the pharmacy, directs The Trail of the Lonesome Pine Outdoor Drama, and hopes that Theodore Tipton, her best friend and the high school band director will take their platonic friendship in a romantic direction. Ave Maria waits, and before she knows it, she turns 40. Now the old maid of Big Stone Gap, Ave Maria decides that happiness is for other people – that is, until a long-buried family secret throws her quiet life spectacularly off-course.
