Aquaman to premiere in China two weeks ahead of US release date

Following the recent news about Crazy Rich Asians‘ release date in China, Deadline reports that Warner Bros. Pictures has set their upcoming and highly-anticipated DC superhero film Aquaman to be released in China on December 7, 2018, two weeks earlier than the US premiere date of December 21.

From Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Films, and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas. The film, starring Jason Momoa (Justice LeagueFrontier) in the title role, 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.
