The final trailer before the release of Aquaman next month arrived yesterday, giving us a hint at whats in store from James Wans underwater superhero adventure.
It wasn’t just the beautiful trailer that caught my attention nor others, it was also the epic musical score that played in the background which felt heroic and inspiring, with many fans wanting the music to be Aquaman’s official theme in the film.
The trailer featured a customised version of “Sidewinder” by Phil Lober/ Ghostwriter Music.
Check it out below:
Here are some tweets from fans who loved the score:

The Aquaman score is amazing. His theme will definitely be as iconic as Wonder Woman’s. pic.twitter.com/pgfYh9wb5e

The score doesn’t look like it will feature in the film itself, with the composer of the piece noting his music is only part of the theatrical marketing campaign. Which is a damn shame really!
If you are interested in hearing more of Ghostwriter Music’s work, his new album “Blackspace” will be up on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, and Googleplay this week.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes “Aquaman,” the origin story of half-surface dweller, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry that 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 action-packed adventure spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, and stars Jason Momoa in the title role.
The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson as Orm, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as the revenge-seeking Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours”) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna. Also featured are Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, an Atlantean Commando, and Temuera Morrison as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
Wan directed from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Will Beall, story by Geoff Johns & James Wan and Will Beall, based on characters created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger for DC. The film was produced by Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada serving as executive producers.
Wan’s team behind the scenes included such frequent collaborators as Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess (“Forrest Gump”), Wan’s five-time editor Kirk Morri, production designer Bill Brzeski, and visual effects supervisor Kelvin McIlwain. They were joined by costume designer Kym Barrett and composer Rupert Gregson-Williams.
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a Peter Safran Production, a James Wan Film, “Aquaman.” The film is being released on December 21, 2018, in 3D and 2D and IMAX, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
