Gods of Egypt- Troublemakers

Gods of Egypt, what an uprising you have started! The film looks exquisite, stunning, mythical BUT it lets down when it comes to actors. People are disappointed by the American cast while precious Egyptian actors are on standby, they say. This kind of things happen all the time. When a film tells the story of a certain nation, the directors consider that the American actors suit the roles better than the inhabitants. Scott Mendelson of Forbes commented regarding this problem “The implication remains that white actors, even generic white actors with zero box office draw, are preferable in terms of domestic and overseas box office than culturally-specific (minority) actors who actually look like the people they are supposed to be playing.”… Why it’s so? I don’t know. I’m, afraid you’ll have to ask them.

As for me, I enjoy seeing Gerard Butler’s face on screens, especially when he plays historical characters. Despite the fact that the trailer gives away way too much, it succeeds in letting out enough in order to make us curious and eager to look forward for its release. The film is scheduled to kick in the theatres on 26 February, 2016. $160 million have been invested in it so far and the directors are expecting a spectacular gross.
