PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Arthur Curry, the human-born heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, goes on a quest to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land.
Director James Wan confirmed that Atlanteans would not talk inside protective speech bubbles as portrayed by Zack Snyder in Justice League (2017). When asked about it, he said, "People are overthinking it. They're just gonna talk!"
Atlanteans are many wonderful things, but forgiving is not one of them.
When Arthur and Mera are fleeing Atlantis Arthur yells "Bogies on our 6" meaning hostiles behind them. The term for a confirmed hostile aircraft is "Bandit", "Bogey" is the term for an unknown aircraft, one that is shooting at you is definitely hostile.
The film title is formed from a shoal of fish in the deep ocean.
The UK theatrical version is cut to remove bloody detail to secure a 12A rating.
$94,200,000 (Non-US) (9 December 2018)
$331,937,351 (USA) (19 February 2019)
