  • Aquaman Director Shares How He Created Underwater Talking Scenes

    Aquaman is an unusual film in that so much of it takes place beneath the seas. Speaking to ComicBook.com, director James Wan explained how he approached underwater dialogue in the movie. Wan says that, really, he just tried not to think about it too much. “Going into this film, very early on, people keep asking me like, ‘How are you going to do underwater talking? How are you going to do this and that?’ And then it just occurred to me that it felt like people were overthinking it,” Wan says.

  • Aquaman: A Win For DC

    Warner Bros. and star Jason Momoa are certainly making a splash with Aquaman, the first ever standalone outing for the DC Comics hero, under the direction of Conjuring universe creator James Wan. Aquaman is unique in that a huge portion of the film takes place underwater, leaving no question of why Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman don't get involved with a global-scale issue. Comicbook.com reports the benefit of the film's wholly independent nature is that it allows Momoa's Arthur Curry to finally establish himself free of almost any universe-built continuity constraints.

  • Did James Wan Reveal Film Location For Aquaman?

    With filming well underway on the first Justice League feature (now with fewer Snyder flourishes), it seems like the DC Extended Universe is moving full steam ahead. At the same time, there’s still so much we don’t know about several Hall of Justice residents. Batman V Superman did get some of the early introductions out of the way, especially since Wonder Woman is less than a year away. But several of the JLA’s major players, including Aquaman, await their chance to step into the spotlight. Although Arthur Curry’s story has yet to unfold in front of the lens, Director James Wan recently revealed that production is scheduled for next summer, with principle photography taking place in Australia. However, it appears the director could have a few location shoots in mind. The social media-friendly director recently took to Instagram to reveal another potential shooting locale. Suspended from the edge of a boat (now that’s location scouting), Wan captured himself along the Amalfi Coast off the Salerno Gulf in Southern Italy. He teased Aquaman aficionados, saying “what a gorgeous, picturesque location. Maybe for a movie of high sea-adventures? #amalficoast” Take a look at the lovely location below: Of course, it’s possible the director was merely having some fun on his vacation. When compared to the comic book renditions of Atlantis, though, the rocky outcroppings and turreted castles could easily double for the mythical city. It would also be ‘historically accurate,’ at least architecturally. Based on Plato’s writing, many theorists believe the underwater burg would have been located somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea. As such, the coastal regions and islands around Italy and Greece would be ideal for shooting a pre-submerged Atlantis (depending how far the film’s backstory goes), shooting surface-for-undersea scenes, or at least creating a template for the CG cities in the finished film. Even though a movie called Aquaman rightfully takes place underwater, screenwriter Will Beall revealed that the film will take place partially on dry land. If Wan and his crew aren’t planning to shoot subsurface scenes on the Amalfi Coast, assuming they use the location at all, the craggy shores could become an entry point for Curry and his Atlanteans cohorts when they leave their home. Of course, shooting on dry land for subsurface is one thing; having the characters speak below the surface is an entirely different challenge. Either way, it will be fascinating to how Aquaman’s latest adventure turns out. Aquaman on July 27, 2018

  • What Is Making 'Aquaman' Shoot Complicated?

    In an interview with Heat Vision the director of Aquaman, James Wan, has opened up about his latest film: Aquaman. Wan is no stranger to franchise films, having directed three of the Fast and Furious movies and developing the Conjuring franchise. Wan said that shooting a film that takes place mainly underwater comes with a big set of challenges. Wan explained "You have to think about CG with the hair, and how their clothing moves, how are they floating, what kind of rig we put them on and all that stuff. " The director went on to stress that much of this challenge derives from his commitment to shooting as much with the real actors as he can, skirting CGI wherever possible. Wan said "That just makes it very difficult and time-sucking and time-challenging to do all of this."
