After a string of movies from Marvel draining out your wallet, it is now time for DC to tug at your income with Aquaman. The film’s premiere is at Los Angeles and unlike your average entry, where the stars walk in and pose at the paparazzi, Jason Momoa, the star of Aquaman, danced on the red carpet along with the rest of the crew. The group broke out in a full-blown performance of the haka, which is a ceremonial dance of the Maori culture.
A video shared by Variety shows Momoa has his team performing the energetic dance in front of a cheering crowd. Momoa led the group who looked very keen on shouting and banging the ground with their feet. The actor even carried the Aquaman trident with him during the performance.
The Haka is a traditional dance performed before battle preparations and has many variations. Sometimes it is performed as a sort of welcome for dignified guests or to celebrate some events. Over the years, the dance has been popularized thanks to various sports teams from New Zealand performing it before the start of international games.
Momoa was joined during the performance by New Zealand’s Temuera Morrison, who plays the role of Aquaman’s father in the film.
