Aquaman (2018) Poster


Jason Momoa: Arthur



  • [Mera and Arthur find an Atlantean device in the desert] 

    Mera : [can't activate it]  Nothing.

    Arthur Curry : Of course it's not working. It's been sitting here gathering dust since before the Sahara was a desert!

    Mera : Before the Sahara was a desert... You do your best thinking when you're not thinking at all. Hold still.

    [extracts sweat from Arthur] 

    Mera : We need water. You're the closest source.

    [uses the water to get the device working] 

    Arthur Curry : Show-off. I could've just peed on it.

  • [Mera jumps from a plane into a desert] 

    Cargo Pilot : She jumped! She didn't have a parachute!

    Arthur Curry : Redheads! You gotta love 'em.

    [jumps after her] 

  • [Mera destroys the device] 

    Arthur Curry : WAIT! Shouldn't we have written it down?

    Mera : I memorized it. Didn't you?

    Arthur Curry : Uh, yeah.

    Mera : What did it say?

    Arthur Curry : Something something trident.

  • Arthur Curry : We should turn back. We can still warn the surface, try and prepare them for what's coming...

    Mera : Turn back?

    Arthur Curry : Look, I learned from a young age not to show weakness, okay? I solve my problems with my anger and my fists. I'm a blunt instrument and I'm damn good at it. I've done nothing but get my ass kicked this whole trip. I'm no leader. I'm not a king. I do not work or play well with others. And I can't let you die, trying to turn me into something I'm not.

    Mera : You think you're unworthy to lead because you're of two different worlds? But that is exactly why you ARE worthy! You are the bridge between land and sea! I can see that now. The question is, can you?

  • Arthur Curry : I'm no leader. I came because I have no choice. I came to save my home, and the people that I love.

  • [last lines] 

    Arthur Curry : My father was a lighthouse keeper. My mother was a queen. They were never meant to meet. But their love saved the world. They made me what I am: a son of the land, a king of the seas. I am the protector of the deep. I am... Aquaman.

  • Mera : [introduces Arthur to Atlantis]  Welcome home.

    Arthur Curry : This is bad-ass!

  • [Aquaman smashes into a submarine captured by pirates] 

    Arthur Curry : Permission to come aboard.

  • Mera : Your half-brother, King Orm, is about to declare war upon the surface world. The only way to stop his war is for you to take your rightful place as King.

    Arthur Curry : Trust me, I am no king.

  • Mera : Atlantis has always had a king. Now it needs something more.

    Arthur Curry : Well, what could be greater than a king?

    Queen Atlanna : A hero. A king fights only for his own nation. You fight for everyone.

  • Mera : What are we doing?

    Arthur Curry : Hiding inside a whale, I got this from Pinocchio!

    [later, Mera finds out who Pinocchio is] 

    Mera : You based our escape strategy from a children's book?

    Arthur Curry : I didn't read the book, I just saw the movie!

  • Orm : Down here, we have a legend about the Karathen, an ancient sea monster so powerful that even King Atlan himself couldn't contain it. So he imprisoned it in the depths of the ocean. In that abyss, the creature bides its time, waiting to rise again. Atlantis has been lying in wait, and now the beast has awakened.

    Arthur Curry : You know, there was a time when I wanted to meet you one day, get to know my little brother, let him know that he wasn't alone, and we could hang out together. If only I'd know what a dick you'd turn out to be.

    Orm : You were the reason our mother was executed. And I've hated you for it ever since. But I do not want to kill you, Arthur. I am going to give you one chance. Go home. Do not ever come back to Atlantis. You are not going to win this. A war is coming to the surface whether you like or not. And I am bringing the wrath of the Seven Seas with me.

    Arthur Curry : You know I can't let that happen.

    Orm : I know.

  • Arthur Curry : What's the plan?

    Mera : The plan WAS to get the Trident first, then challenge Orm for the throne!

    Arthur Curry : So we did things out of order, shit happens!

  • Mera : [about Orm]  Once he is named Ocean Master, he will be unstoppable.

    Arthur Curry : I don't know these people. How can I make them accept me?

    Nuidis Vulko : By winning the hears and minds of the people, by proving that you're worthy. And by retrieving this.

    [takes out a map showing a trident] 

    Arthur Curry : I already got one of those.

    Nuidis Vulko : Not like this one, you don't.

  • Arthur Curry : My mother had fled an arranged marriage, left her whole world behind, but in my father's lighthouse, she had found something unexpected. And my father found the love of his life.

  • Cue Ball : Hey, buddy. You the Fish Boy from the TV?

    Arthur Curry : It's "fish man." What do you want?

    Cue Ball : I'll tell you what I want. Could we get a picture with you?

  • [Jesse Kane is trapped under a missile] 

    David Kane : Wait! You can't leave him here! Help me! Please!

    Arthur Curry : You killed innocent people! Ask the sea for mercy!

  • Manta : I plunder the seas, and you're the Aquaman. We were bound to meet sooner or later!

    Arthur Curry : Let's not make it a habit.

  • Arthur Curry : We got a bogey on our tail!

    Mera : What does that even mean?

    Arthur Curry : Enemy behind us!

    Mera : Why didn't you just say so?

    Arthur Curry : Enemy behind us!

  • [Arthur defeats Orm] 

    Orm : Finish it!

    Arthur Curry : Yield the throne.

    Orm : Forgiveness is not our way!

    Arthur Curry : Maybe you haven't noticed, brother, but I'm not like you.

    Orm : Do it! KILL ME!

    Queen Atlanna : NO! That is enough killing!

    Orm : Mother?

  • [Arthur approaches King Atlan's trident] 

    Karathen : A half-breed mongrel dares to come and take the sacred relic of King Atlan?

    Arthur Curry : Stop.

    Karathen : [surprised]  You understand me?

    Arthur Curry : You're right, I am a half-breed mongrel...

    Karathen : No one has spoken with me since the time of King Atlan.

    Arthur Curry : I'm no king. I'm here because I have no choice. I came to save my home, and the people that I love.

  • Mera : You must defeat Orm.

    Arthur Curry : And what if I can't?

    Mera : Last time you fought him on his ground. This time, fight him on yours.

    [Mera kisses Arthur] 

    Arthur Curry : [stunned]  What was the plan again?

    Mera : [smiles]  The plan is not to get killed.

  • Arthur Curry : Then by bloodshed, do the gods make known their will!

  • Arthur Curry : I don't even know your name.

    Mera : It's Y'Mera-Xebella-Challa. You may call me Mera.

  • [from trailer] 

    Arthur Curry : [to Mera]  This is the exact spot where Vulko gave me my first swimming lesson.

  • Arthur Curry : My birthright, it died with my mother.

  • Arthur Curry : Who the hell are you?

    Manta : Maybe this will jog your memory.

  • [first lines] 

    Arthur Curry : Jules Verne once wrote: "Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide... they will come together". That's how my parents met: like two ships destined for each other.

  • Queen Atlanna : You must forgive me, for everything.

    Arthur Curry : This happened because of me.

    Queen Atlanna : Not because of you. None of this is your fault.

  • [Arthur knocks down Jesse Kane] 

    David Kane : DAD!

    Arthur Curry : Dad?

    [to Jesse] 

    Arthur Curry : That's your kid? Shame on you.

  • Arthur Curry : You're the guy from the sub!

    David Kane : Yes, but now I have Atlantean steel! Call me Black Manta!

  • Queen Atlanna : You're afraid.

    Arthur Curry : Yes.

    Queen Atlanna : Good. You're ready.

  • [Arthur finds Thomas at the pier at sunrise] 

    Arthur Curry : I always know where to find you.

    Thomas Curry : Old habits.

  • Mera : Those were Orm's elite commandoes. The one who led them, he wasn't Atlantean; I've never seen him before.

    Arthur Curry : Yeah, I have. He and his father were pirates. And he blames me for his father's death.

    Mera : They picked a dangerous line of trade. It's not your fault.

    Arthur Curry : That's not how it feels. It was up to me, and I let him die. I could've saved him, but I didn't. And now I've made an enemy. And he could have hurt you. And that would have been my fault.

    Mera : Well, he's behind us now. It's what lies ahead that should concern us.
