If you’ve ever wanted to experience Aquaman’s underwater world up close and personal, you’re in luck. With technology and film integrating themselves with one another more and more, studios are attempting to utilize them for new ways to create revenue. Virtual reality has become increasingly popular as of late, and it just might be what movie studios are looking for.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and IMAX have announced a new virtual reality co-financing and production agreement. Both parties have agreed to develop and release three premium, interactive VR experiences based on the “Justice League” and “Aquaman” movies, along with a third, as yet untitled experience. One experience will be released per year, starting with Justice League; titled “Justice League VR,” it will debut in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Before being made available to the public on other VR platforms, like mobile devices and whatnot, the “experiences” will debut in an exclusive window in Imax VR centers.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater enemy in director Zack Snyder’s “Justice League.” Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash — it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Arriving Nov. 17, “Justice League” stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
“Aquaman” will be directed by James Wan and stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm) and Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko). The movie swims into theaters on December 21, 2018.
