Before you enter this post drooling with anticipation for that God of War movie you’ve been waiting so very long for, allow me to clarify: no, there is no movie based on the hit video game God of War being made. Not yet, anyway. Don’t forget — not too long ago it looked like Brett Ratner would be directing, so an eternal wait is not the worst thing in the world.
To hold us over for now, Gamervision decided to make their own trailer for a God of War movie, only with an interesting spin on the presentation. Instead of an explosive trailer showing of a guaranteed epic summer blockbuster, the site went with more of a dry indie film vibe, and it happens to work really well. Whodathunkit?
Use your own homemade god weapons and abilities to get on over to the other side and check out this indie God of War trailer immediately.
The trailer shows us a story that involves Kratos — the eventual God of War — in his much earlier days, going to school and trying to learn how to become a god. Kratos is scrawny and awkward and gets picked on by other pre-gods, but deep down he knows that he’s destined for great things. With the help of a girl named Athena who “gets him,” he’ll rise up from his unaccepted self and show everyone.
This new God of War is also a parody of indie movies in general, nailing that low-budget character driven tone we’re so used to. The spoofed indie that stands out most is of course Zach Braff’s Garden State as the headline promises.
Just this trailer alone is better than entire spoof movies like Date Movie, Epic Movie, and all of that other unwatchable crap combined, so enjoy!
