The DC Extended Universe's next film Aquaman is a little over a month away from landing in theaters, but for some lucky fans that premiere date has just moved up.

According to ComicBook, Amazon is teaming up with Regal, Cinépolis, ArcLight, and a handful of other movie theater chains to offer early screenings exclusively for Amazon Prime members on December 15—almost a full week ahead of the film's official December 21 release date.

The hype is real for the Jason Momoa-led film. Unlike previous DC films that have flopped, such as Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League, Aquaman's early reviews have been very ​positive, and fans are excited to see what acclaimed director James Wan can bring with this new spin on the DC character.

Of course if the film does well, there will be room for sequels. And Momoa has already expressed a strong desire to keep the series going, even revealing that he has big plans for the next film (should it get made).

“Even when we were shooting Aquaman, I have the opening of Aquaman 2 ready, Momoa recently ​​told SYFY WIRE. "I went in and pitched it to [producer Peter] Safran, and I pitched it to [Warner Bros. chairman] Toby Emmerich. They loved it. It’s awesome ... But yeah, I have plans for Aquaman 2.”

It's great to see a DC star so passionate about his role, especially considering one or two others (cough, Ben Affleck) seemed to want to jump ship when things didn't go as planned. So here's hoping that Aquaman is a smash, and that fans take advantage of these early screenings. The DCEU needs you!

The Office Star Angela Kinsey Would Love to Do a Reunion Special

Whenever a classic TV show is brought back for a revival, it usually splits the fanbase in half. While some people are happy to see their favorite characters return, others are worried about the series coming back in lackluster fashion. And when it comes to the idea of a potential reboot of The Office, the series' cast is just as split.

Steve Carell has been very public about not wanting NBC to bring the show back, but Angela Kinsey is siding with co-stars John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ellie Kemper about welcoming a potential return to Scranton. The 48-year-old actress, who portrayed Angela Martin on the series, recently spoke with PopCulture.com, confirming she’d love to revisit the show.

"I would definitely be up for a reunion," Kinsey said. "I know a few cast members have talked about a special reunion episode to see where everyone is at. I would love that!"

Although many are torn on the idea of bringing The Office back, most fans would certainly be curious enoug to tune in and see what's going on with the Dunder Mifflin crew. Kinsey is no exception, saying, “I would love to know where these people are! I loved the show, I still love the show. I think it really holds up. I'm so thrilled that new audiences are finding it, so I would love that!"

Will it ever happen? It's hard to say. But while we wait to see if any official announcement is made, you can at least still binge The Office on Netflix and try to imagine what creepy thing Cousin Mose is doing these days.

Harry Potter Fans Don’t Want to See the Movies Rebooted, Surprising No One

Although the Harry Potter franchise has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the world, that doesn’t mean fans are ready to see the series rebooted just yet. Yes, that would mean more movies to feed one’s obsession, but the general consensus is that it would be entirely too soon. Don’t believe us? A new poll might just prove it.

ComingSoon.net asked more than 2000 Potterheads if Warner Bros. should reboot the Harry Potter movie series, and a whopping 72 percent said they’re against it. The website also asked fans if reboots were made, how they should be done. Of those polled, 41 percent voted for it to be a direct sequel about Harry’s son, 35 percent voted for a spinoff TV series, 13 percent wanted another Fantastic Beasts spinoff, and a measly 11 percent showed support for a remake of all eight original films.

While it doesn’t look like a reboot will be in the works anytime soon (J.K. Rowling’s representatives just debunked a report about a TV series), that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for the future. Even star Daniel Radcliffe has entertained the idea, saying he believes he won’t be the last Potter portrayal he’ll see in his lifetime. But as long as Rowling and fans are against it, we probably won’t have to worry about it for a while.
