“A king fights only for his nation. You fight for everyone.” - Mera
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film 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.
The film 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, council 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,” Netflix’s “The Get Down”) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Lion”) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
Produced by Schirmer Theatrical, in association with Fortress Talent Management, audiences at Aquaman in Concert will experience James Wan’s first film in the DC Extended Universe, screened live as an orchestra performs ASCAP and BMI award-winning composer Rupert Gregson-Williams‘ original score. Gregson-Williams joins Schirmer Theatrical’s creative team for the production to prepare his film score for live performance. The production includes the film, complete score and parts, along with a conductor video and click track. Production travels with a Technical Director.
Aquaman in Concert is presented under license from Warner Bros. Distributing Inc. The music is licensed from Alfred Music Publishing.
To accompany the diverse settings in Wan’s film, Gregson-Williams was tasked with writing love themes, adventure underscore, battle music and character themes, including what Gregson-Williams described as “revenge-driven industrial music” for one of Aquaman’s foes, the Black Manta, in his 2018 interview with DC Comics writer Tim Beedle. He was also inspired by the modern version of the Aquaman character developed by Wan and lead actor Jason Momoa. Gregson-Williams took his time revising his “Ring of Fire” music that accompanies the arena battle between Arthur and his half-brother Orm. His score also features of landscape of synth sounds reminiscent of the ‘80s to distinguish the underwater kingdoms, including Atlantis.
