Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and be a hero to the world.
Nicole Kidman was director James Wan's top choice for the role of Atlanna. They were previously set to work together on a remake of At the End of the Spectra (2006), but the film was scrapped. Kidman has been a long-time supporter of Wan's career and has publicly raved about his films Insidious (2010) and The Conjuring (2013), calling him "The New Master of Horror." She was also eager to join as filming took place in her home country of Australia.
A war is coming to the surface. And I am bringing the wrath of the Seven Seas with me.
On the scene where Mera and Arthur are listening to the King's message, Mera has her hair straightened, and during the conversation it suddenly appears curled.
The closing credits are a montage of mariner charts and images of the characters.
The UK theatrical version is cut to remove bloody detail to secure a 12A rating.
$94,200,000 (Non-US) (9 December 2018)
