Aquaman to Screen Early For Amazon Prime Members

If Dec. 21 feels too long to wait to see Aquaman, now might be a good time to consider picking up a subscription to Amazon Prime. Prime members will have an exclusive window to see the newest DC Extended Universe film, a full week earlier than its wide release.

Early screenings of the Warner Bros. film will be reserved for Prime members on Dec. 15 at more than 1,000 theaters across the United States.

According to the announcement, members can buy up to 10 tickets through the Atom Tickets app, which will allow moviegoers to see the film at AMC, Regal, National Amusement Theaters and ArcLight Cinema. The offer is also open to those who opt in to Amazon's 30-day trial period for Prime.

While the Prime ticket holders won't be the first people on the planet to see the latest DC movie -- Aquaman premieres Dec. 7 in China -- U.S. fans will no doubt be happy to beat the lines that are sure to form once the movie goes wide.

Early reviews of director James Wan's film have been generally positive, which bodes well for a franchise that has seen a few critical flops in recent years. Both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, which introduced Jason Momoa's Aquaman, under-performed and didn't capture the same hype as the studio's 2017 hit, Wonder Woman.

Details on how to take advantage of the Amazon Prime promotion can be found on Amazon.

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna. The film opens Dec. 21 nationwide.
