Long Range Tracking: ‘Mary Poppins Returns,’ ‘Aquaman,’ & ‘Bumblebee’
Aquaman
Opening Weekend Range: $40 – 60 million

The DC cinematic brand will be tested again with the universe’s first chapter since last year’s Justice League under-performed. A strong contingent of fans are excited for this character’s first big-screen solo adventure, while Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, and the ensemble cast should help translate to fair appeal among both men and women.

Social buzz thus far is comparable to Ant-Man and the Wasp, although a less front-loaded run is likely given the time of year. Reviews and word of mouth, as always, will be key for the comic book adaptation, but Aquaman is effectively looking to serve as the top option for moviegoers interested in an action-driven spectacle around the holiday break.

Even though the film had already been rated by the MPAA, James Wan and his team have just put on the very final touches on AQUAMAN:

James Wan @creeppypuppet

After two years of consuming and devouring my every waking hour, this little indie movie is finally done. It was a monster undertaking.
I can’t THANK enough the amazing post team of VFX/editorial/sound for working tirelessly around the clock — crazy long days, 7 days a week, for many many many weeks without a day off — towards making this a unique and beautiful film.
Everyone poured their heart and soul into it, and I can’t wait to share this 21st December!

In the meantime, I’m gonna go take a really long nap now.

A Message from Amber
On a recent trip to Jordan with the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), I met an amazing 12-year-old girl named Weam. She lives in Jordan's Zaatari Refugee Camp and suffers from thalassemia, a genetic blood disorder. The day I met her, her father brought her to the SAMS center in Zaatari Camp because she had passed out and was feeling weak.

In order to save her life, she needs blood transfusion every 20 days, and iron chelation (oral medication) daily. The cost of this lifelong treatment is around $900 monthly, and her family cannot afford it. Weam was receiving transfusion from a local NGO, but because of budget cuts, Weam hasn't been able to receive treatment for the past two months. Sadly, there are at least 12 more refugee children suffering from this life-threatening condition.

Please join me today to make a difference.
With all my love, Amber

The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) is a global medical relief organization that is working on the front lines of crisis relief in Syria, in neighboring countries, and beyond to alleviate suffering and save lives.

FIRST LOOK: DIVE DEEP INTO THE ART AND MAKING OF AQUAMAN WITH EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW
https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/first-loo ... ve-preview

James Wan's live-action Aquaman movie is almost upon us, a film that's been in the works at Warner Bros. for quite some time. As such, there's a ton of concept art from pre-production that was just begging for its own book. SYFY WIRE's own Mike Avila, was tapped to write The Art and Making of Aquaman for Insight Editions, which hits shelves in the new year.

We have the exclusive debut for the front and back covers, as well as an interior spread that discusses the character's 70+ year history since his introduction in 1941's More Fun Comics #73.

"The first thing I did was ask ... ‘How much inside baseball do you wanna be,'" Avila said. "And I don’t mean with the film, I mean with the character and his comic [book] history. Given that it is a comic book character, you can’t ignore that. We decided that we would focus on the movie, but we wanted to set up and introduce the character to people that maybe only knew him from Justice League, or maybe even from Super Friends."

Avila's research for the book also put him into the paths of the visual effects team, speaking to them during their breaks from arduous sessions in edit rooms and design suites.

As you can see above, the front cover is occupied by Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry, his face partly covered by the Trident of Neptune. Curry, along with the other prinipal characters like Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and Mera (Amber Heard), all have their own sections in the book. The movie's various locations and kingdoms (e.g. Amnesty Bay and The Trench) also get their own sections.

"We broke it down by sections because there’s so much in the movie and this whole mythology of Atlantis that’s being introduced here," Avila continued.

When it comes to the back cover, you've got what looks like the gladiator-esque battle between Curry and his half-brother Orm/Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson). This piece of concept art is one of many Mike got to see in an official lookbook from the studio.

"You could’ve just printed the lookbook and I think people would’ve bought it because the concept art that James Wan and his team put together for this is just amazing. It’s really spectacular how they conceptualized and visualized this from the beginning," he said. "The visuals in this movie are just mind boggling."

He also got to read the shooting script, which proved to be a huge resource in the writing process. In particular, it helped Mike to really visualize Wan's vision for Atlantis.

"It really helped me identify how important Atlantis is here and it’s pretty cool. It’s as well-realized as Gotham was in the Nolan [Batman] movies, according to Wan’s vision. It’s really great and visually, it’s just awesome."

Remaining wary of spoilers and repitition were two of the most difficult factors for Avila during the production of the book. While writing about all of the props and costumes, he had to consult a thesaurus often so as not to be too redundant. When it came to avoiding major plot spoilers, he was extra careful, making sure the book would enhance the moviegoing experience, not serve as a substitute for it.

"James was also pretty mindful of that as well. He’s the director, so he has a lot of say in it," Avila said with a laugh.

Avila noted readers will be surprised at just how creative and innovative the movie really is. He said Wan's way of shooting the feature mirrors James Cameron's patience of waiting for technology to catch up with his creative vision on projects like Avatar.

"The old rule of thumb in Hollywood is never shoot in the water because of all the problems that [can] happen," he continued. "James found a very novel way to work around that. He shot a movie based underwater that is barely shot in water. It’s pretty amazing. The way he shot the movie is pretty revolutionary and it’s also why we didn’t see anything from the movie for a long time. The special effects in this movie are so important to it, that I think he was smart to wait before revealing everything."

Aquaman dives into theaters Dec. 21. The book goes on sale January 1.

Early 'Aquaman' Screening Scores Positive Reactions
https://comicbook.com/dc/hottopics/2018 ... ning-fans/
Over on Twitter, the DCEU fandom began buzzing when a series of early reactions to Aquaman popped up. A bit of digging revealed a screening was held for fans today on the west coast, and those who were able to attend hit up social media to share their first impressions.

While nothing specific could be said about Aquaman, the reactions found so far on social media are positive. Over on Reddit, a user by the name of MaxBorne teased fans about their screening, and they even answered a few questions about the event.

“I cannot confirm or deny that I've seen this movie but if I had I would probably say that it's certainly going to be their most well received movie yet. It's tone closely parallels Ant-man & The Wasp and Thor: Ragnarok and this movie will be liked by the biggest audience, although it will probably suffer from some criticism that it deviates heavily from the original tone of the DCEU to more closely resemble The MCU. But again I reiterate, this would only be my opinion if I had somehow already seen the movie in an advanced screening, which I am not saying I have done,” the fan wrote, highlighting pieces of the post to subtly confirm he did make an early screening.
