Amazon Prime members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to see Aquaman 5 days early at participating theater chains on December 15th. Several major theater chains, including Regal and AMC, are included on the list for the 7pm Saturday screenings. While this is ahead of the U.S. release date of December 21st, it will be released early in China and parts of Europe on December 7th. Amazon Prime members should expect to get a link to purchase tickets online soon.

UPDATE: Warner Bros confirmed this news in a press release this morning. They also provided a link to purchase tickets: www.amazon.com/aquamanmovie.
According to ReReleaseNews:
On Saturday December 15th theater chains such as Regal, AMC, Cinepolis, Bow Tie, ArcLight, Showcase, Studio Movie Grill, Santikos, Megaplex and possibly others will feature a 7PM screening of Aquaman for Amazon Prime customers. Those screenings will be separate of regular Thursday preview screenings which will begin at 5PM on December 20th.
“These screenings create an event atmosphere for films that might need an edge; people who may not otherwise plunk down full-price for a Saturday afternoon screening,” said Matthew Monagle of Film School Rejects in July.
Although December 15th is an entire five days ahead of Aquaman’s official Thursday release, it is after the film is set to open in China and many major European and Asian markets.
For Prime members, it can be expected that tickets will be made available soon, likely through an Atom Tickets link at which they may book up to 10 tickets by signing in with their Prime account. Amazon already set up a separate page with Aquaman movie merchandise.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and 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 film also stars Amber Heard (“Justice League,” “Magic Mike XXL”) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Spider-Man 2”) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” films, “Watchmen”) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Netflix’s “The Get Down”) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Lion”) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
Wan directs from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (“The Conjuring 2”) and Will Beall (“Gangster Squad,” TV’s “Training Day”), story by Geoff Johns & James Wan and Will Beall, based on characters created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger for DC. The film is 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 includes such frequent collaborators as Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess (“The Conjuring 2,” “Forrest Gump”), his five-time editor Kirk Morri (“The Conjuring” films, “Furious 7,” the “Insidious” films), and production designer Bill Brzeski (“Furious 7”). They are joined by costume designer Kym Barrett (“The Matrix” trilogy, “The Amazing Spider-Man”) and composer Rupert Gregson-Williams (“Wonder Woman”).
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a Peter Safran Production, a James Wan Film, “Aquaman.” The film is set to hit theaters this December in 3D and 2D and IMAX, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
