Jason Momoa took to Instagram to share a brand new poster for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films‘s upcoming superhero blockbuster Aquaman, featuring Momoa and Amber Heard as Arthur and Mera standing beside each other while wearing their characters’ classic comic book costumes.
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas. The film, starring Momoa (Justice League, Game of Thrones) in the title role, 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.
Aquaman also stars Amber Heard (Justice League, Magic Mike XXL) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man 2) as Vulko, counsel to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring films, Watchmen) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Baywatch, The Get Down) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Lion) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna. Also starring is Ludi Lin (Power Rangers) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando, and Temeura Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, Green Lantern) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
Directed by Wan from a script by Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (The Conjuring 2), from the story by Geoff Johns, Wan and Beall, the film is being produced by Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg, Walter Hamada, and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. The movie is based on characters from DC’s Aquaman created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger. Rupert Gregson-Williams (Wonder Woman) will compose the music.
Aquaman opens on December 21 in theaters everywhere.

Jurassic Park is invading this week’s , the Anaheim, California convention focusing on art and design geared toward collectors and creators. The convention will feature a Jurassic Park art show timed to this year’s 25th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s film.
“Most surprising was how much beauty could be found in some of the movie’s most terrifying scenes. We also realized there are no small moments in Jurassic Park,” DesignCon curator Carmen Acosta tells The Hollywood Reporter of the show. “Our artists know this movie line for line, and many of their depictions come from small scenes that only fans who’ve watched the movie dozens of times would recognize. Our show covers the big moments everyone knows, but it will truly be an experience that speaks to those die-hard Jurassic Park fans out there.”
DesignerCon runs November 16-18 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Check out some of the pieces below.

Mondo Gallery has announced The Art of Laurent Duriex Part Two opening on November 9, 2018.
Laurent Durieux is a celebrated illustrator and graphic artist from Brussels, who is responsible for some of Mondo’s most memorable works of pop art, including a 2013 poster of Jaws.
Durieux had this to say about the upcoming show:
“I’m pretty sure people are expecting me to raise the bar a little higher than for my first 2014 solo exhibition at Mondo,” Durieux stated. “I don’t know if I succeeded in doing that but I did my very best to hopefully meet those expectations. Cherry on top, I also had the immense honor to have been able to work on some of the best properties in popular culture, some of which have only been made available for me, which is not only very humbling but also an amazing sign of confidence in my artistry. I truly can’t wait for everyone to see this 7 months labor of love.”
The opening reception, free and open to the public, will be held on Friday, November 9 from 7:00 – 10:00pm at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX (4115 Guadalupe St). The show will run through Saturday, November 17.

D-Con is a show that has some of your favorite artists, while giving you the opportunity to discover many, many soon-to-be favorites, and we couldn’t be more excited to have a booth there for the first time!
