Warner Bros. has unveiled the first trailer for superhero movie "Aquaman," which is due in theaters in December. 

The footage showed glimpses of a brightly colored underwater world that is in peril due to conflicts with surface dwellers. Jason Momoa plays the title character, a reluctant king forced to battle his brother.

Director James Wan, known for "Furious 7" and "The Conjuring" movies, said he wanted to give "Aquaman" a different feel than other superhero movies filling up screens.

"My movie in some ways plays more like a science-fiction fantasy film than a traditional superhero movie," he said. 

 “Aquaman” opens in Philippine cinemas on December 13. - Reuters
