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.
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.
You think you're unworthy to lead because you're of two different worlds? But that is exactly why you ARE worthy!
When Arthur meets his mother prior to getting the trident, she says to him you're a hero. She has been at the core of the Earth since Arthur was a child and was alone. How would she know anything about his heroic exploits.
