Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson has revealed that he was offered the chance to snap up directing duties on DC's Aquaman.
Johnny Depp allegedly asked several Hollywood studio bosses to blacklist his ex-wife Amber Heard and even tried to get her fired from Aquaman.
Aquaman makes a splash at Number 1 in its first week on the Official Film Chart, outselling the rest of the Top 5 combined. Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) discovers he’s the half-Atlantean heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, becoming Aquaman to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land, and prove his worth as the future king. Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe also star. It pushes last week’s chart-topper Ralph Breaks The Internet to Number 2; Bohemian Rhapsody also falls one place, landing at Number 3; Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald drops two to Number 5. Meanwhile, fellow superhero film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hangs on to Number 4 for a second week on digital downloads only. Could the hero swing to the Number 1 spot when it releases on disc on April 22. Another new entry, the Peter Jackson produced dystopian steampunk action film Mortal Engines, roles in at Number 6. Venom returns to the Top 10, climbing 6 places to Number 7; A Star Is Born lands at 8; Creed II drops four spots to Number 9, and Taron Egerton’s incarnation of Robin Hood rounds off the countdown at Number 10. This week’s Official Film Chart features an exclusive clip of Will Ferrell and John C Reilly discussing their reunion in Holmes & Watson. The adventure-comedy caper will be available to Download & Keep from April 20.

“You and your department are the unsung heroes of this film,” Wan told visual effects supervisor Kelvin McIlwain in a Facebook comment. “I’m with you James,” Mcllwain replied. Also Read: Does 'Aquaman' Have a Post-Credits Scene?
"Johnny and I refer to his other personality, the part of him that is present when he beats me up — we call that the monster," Heard said.
Similar to how Warner Bros. hooked female moviegoers with Wonder Woman, the studio lured that demographic again for Aquaman, but under a different guise. With Wonder Woman, female audiences finally had a superhero they could claim as their own. Diana Prince's image easily sold the virtues of female empowerment and strength. When it came to Warners attracting women to Aquaman, it was all about the hunk factor in leading man Jason Momoa, not to mention selling the maternal…
Director James Wan shares the story behind the surprise vocal cameo in his blockbuster film — and how he hid it from the rest of the cast.

Momoa is himself Hawaiian born, and while there’s been some ‘discussion’ online over whether he should be leading a traditional Māori haka, it appears he’s been largely given a pass on ‘cultural’ grounds by the Polynesian community (not least those musclebound gents who were actually involved).
