AQUAMAN - Final Trailer - Now Playing In Theaters.
In 1985, Maine lighthouse keeper Thomas Curry rescues Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), the queen of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. They fall in love and have a son named Arthur (Jason Momoa), who has the power to communicate with sea creatures. When Atlantean soldiers are sent to retrieve Atlanna, who fled her arranged marriage in Atlantis, she abandons her family and returns to Atlantis, entrusting her advisor, Nuidis Vulko (Willem Dafoe), to train Arthur. Becoming a skilled warrior, Arthur rejects Atlantis upon learning that Atlanna was executed for loving a human and having a half-breed son.
In the present day, several months after Steppenwolf's invasion, Arthur confronts pirates hijacking a Russian Akula-class submarine. Their leader, Jesse Kane (Michael Beach), is killed in a failed attempt to kill Arthur, and his son David vows revenge. Orm (Patrick Wilson), King of Atlantis and Arthur's half-brother, attempts to convince King Nereus (Dolph Lundgren) of Xebel to help unite Atlantis and attack the surface world for polluting the oceans. Nereus notes that if Orm unites all four kingdoms, he will receive the title of Ocean Master, commander of the most powerful force on the planet. A Russian submarine attacks and is destroyed by Orm, convincing Nereus to join forces to defend the oceans.
Nereus' daughter Mera (Amber Heard), betrothed to Orm, refuses to aid them and journeys to the surface to ask Arthur for help. He declines, but Mera earns his trust by saving Thomas from a tsunami summoned by Orm. Arthur reluctantly accompanies Mera to a rendezvous with Vulko, who urges Arthur to find the Trident of Atlan, a magic artifact of Atlantis' first ruler, to reclaim his rightful place as king. They are ambushed by Orm's men, and Arthur is captured.
