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.

London Has Fallen header

Okay, so another trailer for another sequel to another generic action movie has come out. The first full trailer for London Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler as the secret service agent Mike Banning who saved the US President (Aaron Eckhart) in Olympus Has Fallen has gone online. While the first film received mixed to negative reviews, it was still enough of a success to warrant a sequel. It even beat out its summer tentpole competitor White House Down that same year.

So what happens in the sequel. Well now all the world’s leaders are gathering together for a major summit, and of course terrorists take the opportunity to strike by killing all but the President of the United States, where it is up to Mike Banning once again to protect him at all costs. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Gerard Butler

The upcoming Point Break remake has lost its star.

It’s being reported that 300 and Olympus Has Fallen star Gerard Butler has dropped out of the movie, which will be a new take on the 1991 flick of the same name that starred Patrick Swayze as a surfer who’s part of a bank robbing operation and Keanu Reeves as an FBI agent who goes undercover as a surfer trying to find out who’s involved in the robberies.

Butler was in line to play the Swayze role.
