A trailer for Wes Anderson's God of War

07.16.2010

So you want a God of War movie huh? Well, one will get made eventually, but it’s a matter of who’s capable enough to take the helm for such a project. Currently, it’s unfortunately in the hands of Brett Ratner, but what if it escaped his clutches and say…Wes Anderson got ahold of it?

This trailer from GamerVision shows us that vision. It’s God of War as an indie movie, and it’s far more hilarious and well-made than I anticipated, I have to say. Here’s the official synopsis:

Gamervision's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Inglourious Plummers and the cult hit Maniac Mansion is a unique romantic black comedy in the proud tradition of Rushmore and Gigantic. Josh Henderson stars as Kratos, an orphan teen who just transfered to Spartan Academy. There he meets Athena (Zane Bauer), an alluring rebel with parental issues herself. The two hit it off almost immediately, and find they share much more in common than they originally thought when Kratos is introduced to Athena's father Zeus (Michael Sadorf), the same father who abandoned Kratos at an early age. Determined to reconnect with his son after more than a decade of absence, Zeus forbids Kratos from seeing Athena, yet the star-crossed lovers find themselves inexplicably attracted to one another, despite the newfound revelation of their relation.

Check it out below:

I love this so frickin much. The guys are really cute in this. I remember the first time I got beat up with a tennis racket. The girl was mean for being only five foot two.

Wow. That was terribly un-funny.
It was like "untalented student filmmaker's take on Wes Anderson's God of War".

HA!

If this were real, I would totally see this movie. Though, that may be just because Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are the shit.

Also, that 'people missing the same imaginary gods' line is totally a re-appropriation of Zac Braff's line about the meaning of home and family in Garden State:

"You know that point in your life when you realize the house you grew up in isn't really your home anymore? All of a sudden even though you have some place where you put your shit, that idea of

"You know that point in your life when you realize the house you grew up in isn't really your home anymore? All of a sudden even though you have some place where you put your shit, that idea of home is gone...

You'll see one day when you move out it just sort of happens one day and it's gone. You feel like you can never get it back. It's like you feel homesick for a place that doesn't even exist.

Maybe it's like this rite of passage, you know. You won't ever have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it's like a cycle or something.

I don't know, but I miss the idea of it, you know. Maybe that's all family really is. A group of people that miss the same imaginary place."

LMAO! This was awesome. Shows just how formulaic Anderson's films, and most modern independent films, really are.

I know there are a lot of properties, this being one, where fans are just SO into the mythology (no pun intended).

But if someone did a shake-up like this, I think it could be infinitely more genius than any traditional approach.

For a fake trailer of a fake movie, this was actually cleverly written and directed. Now I actually want to see this version of the movie.

Wes Anderson's Spider-Man was much funnier, but this was good too.

Perfect!

The way these guys mimic stereotypical indy films and film festival pickings is perfect. Halfway through the trailer I actually began believing it's an actual trailer for a REAL movie. Kudos! Plus I love God Of War, seeing worthy parodies like these just makes it all the better.

Is this for real?

This has some of the worst audio production of any feature film I have ever seen. Is this really a Wes Anderson film? Was he given no money to make this at all? It looks funny, but needs a lot of post production help to make it clean.

Surprising

I'm not all that familiar with God of War (I'm not a console gamer). But I am familiar with Wes Anderson. And man, they nailed his style on this. I would actually go see this movie.

I thought that was funny and well made. These Wes Anderson fan videos always make me think of his Credit Card commercials he had a few years back.

Great Trailer

Wes Anderson is one of my favorite directors and this proved why he is one of the best directors out there. I love his cinematography in his movies, his writing, and his brutually honest look in the flaws of the world. I would love to see this.
