New Gods of Egypt international trailer should have stayed overseas

02.02.2016

Something strange is afoot with GODS OF EGYPT

While we'll always look fondly upon director Alex Proyas for giving us THE CROW and DARK CITY, there is something that feels so very off about his latest picture GODS OF EGYPT, and it's all over the new international trailer for the film. 

Once upon a time, a film like GODS OF EGYPT knew exactly what it was, and it did everything it could to bring fun and entertainment to its audience. But along the way, these movies became very serious and gritty and unaccepting of their larger-than-life stature, and people have moved away from those films. In the same breath though, GODS OF EGYPT tries to be campy in all the wrong ways with sarcasm and one-liners and winking at the viewer as if they're in on it, but in a way that's incredibly distracting. 

Who knows? Maybe GODS OF EGYPT will surprise us all, but, when this is the way the film continues to be sold, saying you've got a bad feeling about it now may be a prophecy that pays off in spades in the near future. 

GODS OF EGYPT opens in theaters on February 26.

Yay for green screen!! As much action as there was in that trailer, the sad part is that none of it excites me.

This looks like one of the worst movies that received national promotion of all time. They can't even put together a single 30 second spot that isn't insultingly terrible? I'd rather watch an Adam Sandler movie.

Yikes. The CG effects look like they were done by whoever made the Scorpion King fight in The Mummy Returns.

Look at all the effort that could have gone into making a kickass God of War movie.

Here's hoping we get a good Assassin's Creed movie that leads to a kickass God of War movie.

It does look like a video game but should be a silly fun / awfully good kind of movie.

I really hope this movie bombs so badly it'll send a message to the idiots who green lighted and produced this abomination.

Just like in the case of the previous trailers, I don't understand you guys. This looks like fun times at the movies. Nothing great, or memorable, just fun.

Meh....

It looks fun in a stupid kind of way. Kind of like Immortals, which I thought was really bad, but has kind of grown on me on repeat TV viewings. Everything has to be bigger and more explosion-y. I agree it's unfortunate (because it's lost what made these movies cool in the first place), but unless the reviews are just horrific it will probably be worth a theater ticket (at least a matinee).
