The other big reason for the ongoing success of this movie is that the Warner Bros. decision of casting James Wan as the director for this one.

We all know that Warner Bros. hasn’t pressurized Wan for making any changes in his style of filmmaking and the confirmation of this has been reported straight from James Wan during an interview earlier this year as he stated,
“It was very important for me early on to be allowed to make my own film and to have my own voice be in there,” Wan said. “After Furious 7 and Conjuring 2, I didn’t want to be a director for hire. After Furious 7, that’s kind of who I was to some degree, but after that, I don’t want to be that guy again. So, it was very important for me to be able to bring my own stamp, my own visual aesthetic, create the characters. Even though Jason has somewhat been established Justice League, I wanted to bring his character into this, basically, fresh in a lot of ways.”
“So it was important for me to obviously pay a respect to where he was left off in [Justice League], but then allow me the freedom to take him to where I want to take him at the end of the movie. My hero goes on this hero’s journey to become someone very different than where he started. That was something that was very important for me. But the movie I want to make, that I was allowed that freedom to do that.”
So, it seems like the magic of James Wan is already winning a lot of hearts and if you haven’t watched this film then do go now because this movie needs to be seen on the big screen and also if you want to see life underwater in the best way possible as James Wan has done with this movie.
