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.
We must stop him.
Arthur Curry: And how do you propose we do that?
Nuidis Vulko: By retrieving this.
Arthur Curry: I already got one of those.
Nuidis Vulko: Not like this one, you don't.
When the Russian submarine is hijacked the pirates craft moors itself near the bow, presumable over or very close to the forward escape trunk. The majority of the submarine crew block themselves into the torpedo room, which is directly under the forward escape trunk. The pirates would have needed to go through the torpedo room to reach the command center.
