Gods Of Egypt Gerard Butler

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for their all-out epic film Gods of Egypt that will serve as their Super Bowl spot for the upcoming movie.

Watch Super Bowl spot titled “War” here below.

Gods of Egypt has Gerard Butler leading as the god of darkness Set, who’s usurped the Egyptian throne with aspirations to rule the world, although his style of leadership involves much chaos, conflict, and destruction. Game Of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (who plays Jaime Lannister on the HBO series) stars as Horus, is beheld as the only one who can say Egypt from Set’s tyranny.

Lionsgate Apologizes For Whitewashed ‘Gods Of Egypt’ Oversight

Gods of Egypt header

By now, in 2015, you’d think that studios would have caught on to the idea that they would want to cast a film like Gods of Egypt with actors who are, I don’t know, Egyptian. Just so that the actors can properly reflect the ethnicity of that time period. But after seeing the first posters and trailer for the film, it’s no surprise that there was an uproar over the idea that headlining star Gerard Butler could even pass as a Egyptian. Let’s not forget that Nikola Coster-Waldau and Brenton Thwaites, who also star in this film, are both white as well.

As confusing as this may sound, the film still got made, and with the all the vitriol it’s already been getting with just the first trailer and posters alone because it is so whitewashed, director Alex Proyas and Lionsgate have come out to apologize for it. See what they had to say below.

‘Gods Of Egypt’ Trailer: Humans Against CGI Ancient Egypt Backdrop

Aesthetically, the first set of posters for Alex Proyas‘s Gods of Egypt did not look good, and obviously that should not be a representation of the film itself. Often times, it is though. But we should never let the look of posters cloud our judgement, even if this is a pretty white-washed film.

But holding out on the hopes that the film may be actually entertaining seems like a futile effort, especially since the look and feel of this new trailer gives off a wretched whiff of horribly bad CGI backdrops, with equally bad CG effects and even worse CG characters. Check out the full trailer for Gods of Egypt below.

While any and all tentpole projects can get a fair bit of funding, it’s the more intriguing pieces that appear to be getting the bad end of their respective deals.

The latest project to get delayed is, according to Deadline, Legendary Pictures’ upcoming film, Paradise Lost.

Helmed by Alex Proyas, the film is set to star Bradley Cooper, Djimon Honsou, Casey Affleck, Camilla Belle, and Callan McAuliffe, and will obviously be based on the John Milton poem, which follows the story of “the battle between good and evil.”

The Crow blu-ray

The movie’s star may not have lived to see what has been hailed as his greatest film on the widest of screens, but that didn’t stop The Crow, the controversial 1994 feature adaptation of the underground comic book miniseries by James O’Barr, from becoming a box office hit and spawning a franchise that includes three sequels, a short-lived television series, and a forthcoming remake. Now the original film that helped establish Miramax Films’ genre movie arm Dimension Films as a major force in the industry that would give rise to the Scream and Scary Movie series several years later is coming to Blu-ray. You can check out the trailer and a list of special features below this article.

From Abraham Lincoln, to the Archangel Michael, actor Benjamin Walker is having one hell of a run. The star of the upcoming film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has, according to Deadline, joined the cast of the equally intriguing Paradise Lost.

The film shoots this January, and will have a script worked on by Stuart Hazeldine, Lawrence Kasdan, and with a recent draft from Ryan Condal.

Legendary Pictures Bringing ‘Mass Effect’ Movie To Comic–Con

The Movie God   |  @   |

We all know how bad movies based on games tend to be (and vice versa), but there are some games out there that, if done correctly, could make some pretty fantastic movies.

One of the big ones that jumps to mind is the Mass Effect trilogy. One of the biggest game series to-date, the BioWare property takes the action–RPG to incredible places, making for an intense and compelling story and a truly must–play experience for any gamer out there.

A Mass Effect movie has been whispered about for a while now, dating back to around when Mass Effect 2 was being released where Casey Hudson was quoted saying “Obviously we have a tremendous amount of interest from people in Hollywood to make a major motion picture about Mass Effect. The most important thing for us is, we don’t just want to see a movie get made. We want to see a great movie get made, if it’s going to get done at all.” That was followed by the news that Legendary Pictures had secured the rights to turn the game into a movie, but that was the last we heard about it…until now.
