What’s New: Aquaman 2, Who We Became, Gyeongseong Creature, Moving

by Neil Bui

Pop culture is a never-ending world of updates, teases, trailers, and hopefully releases. What’s New Wednesday is Dorkaholics’ way to keep us all up to date with what’s new across comics, tv, film, games, and more! This week, the focus is on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Who We Became, Gyeongseong Creature, and Moving.

  1. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom: Tickets on Sale Video

In the new promotional video, announcing that tickets for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are now on sale, it begins with narration in the form of Jason Momoa’s character Arthur/Aquaman speaking to his infant son about their shared heritage of being both under the sea as well as on the land. It’s a nice sight to see as this will be the first time we see this take on Aquaman as a father.

Release Date: In theaters December 22, 2023

Synopsis: Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time black manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic black trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former king of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.

  1. Who We Became: Trailer

Seeing that the subtitle for the documentary Who We Became is “A Story of Kapwa” naturally spurred me to Google the term ‘kapwa’ in hopes of understanding not only what this word means but also its significance in the story being told. My brief research led me to recognize it as a term for “shared identity,” “equality,” and “being with others,” which feels greatly community-focused and places the self as tied to others. I’m excited to see the film as a look back on the last few years, not only navigating a global pandemic but also hate crimes as well as from the lens of Asian American experiences.

Release Date: On Netflix on December 1, 2023

Synopsis: WHO WE BECOME follows three young Filipino women grappling with an emerging global pandemic while forging unexpected connections with their families. Discovering themselves in the process. The film is a self-documented time capsule for turbulent times, WHO WE BECOME captures the unbreakable bond between Filipino family and community.

  1. Gyeongseong Creature: Trailer

The latest trailer for Gyeongseong Creature proudly showcases the mix of genres the series blends as it convincingly takes us back to the 1940s as the backdrop for not just a mystery thriller but also a monster series of sorts. Korean entertainment is certainly carving out its own niche of the monster genre (i.e. Sweet Home).

Release Date: On Netflix – Part 1 (first seven episodes) on December 22, 2023, Part 2 (last three episodes) on January 5, 2024

Synopsis: In the spring of 1945 at the mysterious Ongseong Hospital in Gyeongseong, an entrepreneur and a sleuth fight for survival and face a creature born from human greed.

  1. Moving: English Dub Version Trailer

After its record breaking success, the Korean superhero series Moving is becoming even more accessible to the English-speaking world with its own dub debuting in December.

Release Date: On Hulu on December 13, 2023

Synopsis: Bongseok, a boy who could float before he could walk, and Huisoo, a girl who survived a horrific car crash unscathed, end up at the same school. They quickly become close after confiding in each other, and soon discover there are more people like them out in the world — people with extraordinary abilities. But while life seems relatively carefree for the teenagers, a mysterious delivery driver named Frank begins murdering people with powers across Seoul. With danger drawing ever closer, will anyone be able to stop Frank before he uncovers the children’s secrets?
