“Aquaman is the superhero for everyone: he has unique, aquatic superpowers, but he’s also a surface dweller just like us — if we were all as cool as Jason Momoa, that is!” director James Wan said in a statement to TheWrap. “Bringing this epic origin story and the wondrous underwater world to the screen has been an amazing experience for the whole cast and crew, and I’m so excited for Prime members to be our first audience for ‘Aquaman.’”

Vice President of Amazon Prime Cem Sibay added, “Prime offers the best of shopping and entertainment and these early showings of ‘Aquaman’ are yet another pleasant surprise for members, and one that I’m personally also looking forward to. We love delivering smiles whether it’s through an incredible deal during the holidays or inviting members on a journey to Atlantis with us in this action-packed adventure before anyone else.”

“James Wan has created an epic adventure for the big screen,” said Blair Rich, president of worldwide marketing for Warner Bros. Pictures Group and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. “Coming together with Amazon to reach their footprint of Prime members in the U.S. is the ideal way for us to bring ‘Aquaman’ to moviegoers and their families as they kick off their holidays.”
