As Aquaman‘s release on December 21 quickly approaches, the star of the movie, Jason Momoa is making various appearances in the bid to promote the movie. Just recently, he appeared on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and that particular interview was definitely one you need to see.
Other than the usual talk show Q&A, Fallon had a little something extra up his sleeve that he wanted the test the actor on: whether he could actually throw a trident (as Momoa’s character in the movie is rarely without one, and is quite the seasoned pro). So, the two of them get into a trident-throwing competition, and as you might guess, Momoa really is good at it – not surprising in the least, I have to say. Have you seen the size of his arms?
So, the two of them get ready to compete, with Fallon explaining the rules of the game: they have to aim for the target, which is Aquaman’s nemesis, Ocean Master, and each of his body parts being a different point. There’s also Nemo and Dory from Finding Nemo, but hitting them will set you back -20 points.
The former Game of Thrones star really gets ready and comfortable by taking off his jacket and necklace, prompting cheers and applause from the crowd. He then urges Jimmy to do the same, and the show’s hist reluctantly follows suit. Then the match begins.
And do I really need to tell you who eventually wins after managing to throw all three tridents on the target? Well, not Jimmy that’s for sure – though he does have quite the enthusiastic start, shouting “You sick son of a b***h” at the target before throwing.
Watch the whole thing in the clip below:
Aquaman will be released in the US on December 21, but it has already had an early release in China, which proved to be tremendously successful, making $93.6 million on opening weekend, the biggest DC opening there yet, excelling Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
Jason Momoa stars as Arthur Curry, the half-Atlantean and half-Human ruler of Atlantis and King of the Seven Seas, who is torn between trying to protect both the surface and the underwater world, as tensions between the two are rising and his half-brother Orm is stirring for war.
