Jason Momoa, known for his portrayal of Khal Drogo in HBO’s hit tv show Game of Thrones, is seen in the trailer as the perfect embodiment of Aquaman.
Aquaman or Arthur Curry as he is also known must fight to stop the seven kingdoms from lashing out against the surface world.
Aquaman’s half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) seeks to bring the seven seas together in the quest for world domination.
The cast of the DC Comic classic is star-studded, featuring Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe.
How old do you have to be to watch Aquaman?
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) have certified Aquaman as a 12A.
This means children under the age of 12 are not permitted to see the film unless accompanied by an adult.
It is up to the accompanying adult to determine whether the film is suitable for that child.
The BBFC say Aquaman contains moderate violence and scenes of sustained threat which have resulted in the classification.
When it is released on DVD, a child younger than 12 will be unable to purchase the film.
Despite not being released until December, a number of critics saw the film at its world premiere in London this week.
Official reviews have yet to be released, but these film buffs have taken to Twitter to praise Aquaman, for its actors, director and the special effects.
Managing Director for CinemaBlend and co-host of ReelBlend Sean O’Connell said: “Chalk up a big, wet win for DC. Aquaman is an epic swing-for-the-fences adventure that plunges fans into incredibly creative worlds.
“Goofy in spots, but its rollicking fun. See it on the biggest screen possible!”
Events editor for CinemaBlend Eric Eisenberg also raved about the underwater action film saying: “Excited now I can say how much I enjoyed Aquaman!
“It’s a cool adventure built on some tremendous action sequences and set piece with a great hero arc/performance from Jason Momoa as the glue.
“There’s fun world building and it looks wonderful. A great step for the DCEU.”
Whilst author Brandon Davis praised director James Wan, “Aquaman is great.
“James Wan made a really unique superhero origin film, often crossing into fantasy-epic territory but grounded in family and discovery.
“The world is visually incredible. Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry is a total bad-ass.”
Aquaman is in cinemas across the UK from December 14
