Broadsheet Trailer Park: Gods Of Egypt

at

gods-of-egypt

What you may need to know:

1. Good grief. Green screen much?

2. Mortal Bek (Brenton Thwaites) allies with god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to defeat Set (Gerard Butler), the god of darkness. As you do.

3. Nothing says quality like Gerard Butler.

4. If you thought the Oscars were #SoWhite, it’s nothing compared to ancient Egypt.

5. Gods of Egypt has already come under fire for its whitewashed cast. It looks like it may have bigger problems than a lack of diversity.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: God almighty.

Release Date: April 8

    Studio apologised for a lack of ‘diversity’ in casting, as though it needs more token people of colour to ‘represent it’s audience’.

    Which completely misses the point, screw representing the audience, they’re pretending Egyptian history and mythology is white history and mythology.

    A movie about Elizabethan England with an all-Chinese cast doesn’t have a problem with diversity, it’s cast people of the wrong race.

      Ah sure, what’s wrong with Ralph Fiennes playing Michael Jackson in a movie? MJ was basically white anyway

            I second this. And wasn’t she in that singing Little Red Riding Hood movie?

            And at least Mary Poppins and Emily Blunt are both white.

            I like her froideur. She’ll be good in that respect. I didn’t know she could sing. Apparently the movie will be based on another of the PL Travers books (thankfully) as opposed to a ‘new’ story.

      Hear, hear ! …and why aren’t they speaking in the original Egyptian Afroasiatic language!? And maybe those complaining think viewers should believe the Gods of Egypt were real too… if one is going to go retard, one may as well go full-retard.
