An all-new trailer for the upcoming Aquaman debuted online this afternoon and immediately took social media by storm, inspiring a wide number of reactions from fans looking forward to the new movie.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, "Aquaman," starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be... a king.
Prevailing reactions are excitement to Amber Heard's Hera, Nicole Kidman's Atlanna, the debut of the iconic comics-accurate suit, and the immense action. Other reactions, however, weren't as positive, mainly taking issue with the performances and dialogue.
Scroll down to see what the internet is saying about the new Aquaman trailer ahead of it hitting theaters on December 21st!

Blow Us Away
Okay. We are completely sold on #Aquaman. James Wan's epic direction & fluid camera-style, and Don Burgess' bold cinematography are beautifully capturing this dazzling world. From the costume design to the stunning visual effects, this film is going to blow us away in December! pic.twitter.com/ywVwuGJjqK— DR Movie News (@DRMovieNews) October 5, 2018

Not Up To Snuff
AQUAMAN looks incredibly dumb and the CG isn't quite up to snuff and that action sequence needs some better editing, but it also looks super fun and bright and Detective Destroyer kicks ass with a trident, so probably gonna be there opening weekend.— Bruce Labbate (@blabbate) October 5, 2018
Dumb Guy Stereotype
The #Aquaman trailer manages to look visually incredible while simultaneously presenting its lead as a strange dumb guy stereotype from a children's show. Hoping he has more depth in the actual movie.— Victor Santiago (@CircleMan628) October 5, 2018
The acting from Mamoa and Heard in this clip is awful and card board but at least Wan brought some colorful looking shots. This movie looks like it will be another Valerian and the city of a thousand planets but with lesser cgi #Aquaman pic.twitter.com/H2eAubs9sI— Jay Thunderian (@jay_thunderian) October 5, 2018
