The first Aquaman was a smash hit upon its release, grossing over $1.14 billion at the global box office and earning generally positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. Development on a sequel began shortly thereafter, with Momoa returning alongside Patrick Wilson as Orm, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Amber Heard as Mera, Abdul-Mateen II as Kane and Teumera Morrison as Thomas Curry, as well as director James Wan and screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. With a story co-written by Momoa and Johnson-McGoldrick, production on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom began in London in late June.
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence–a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential–only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
