    And all they have for promotion so far are clips and posters. GOE will flop big time. No cast or producers are on the road advertising this movie and talking about making it.They need to connect with the public what are they waiting for? Same with LHF.

  • adina

    Who knows what’s going on. Kathy Holmes is all over the map promoting Touched with Fire a movie that no one heard about and had a budget way smaller than GOE. Zollander 2 cast started running around the globe one month before the premiere.

  • Julia

    There is time yet to promote both movies. Talk show hosts don’t have schedules out yet for the following week. Lionsgate is running promotions on TV and in the theatres.
    It is quite possible that GB did promotions while he was in Spain, Denmark, Germany and London. The European market does very well for GB films and it seems that he is more appreciated there then in the US.
    As far as a flop goes, I have read that on every movie he has ever come out with right here on JJ, over and over. You don’t know if it will go over or not.
    Believe it or not, there are people payed to promote and know what they are doing.
    Yes, there is much negative talk especially by the people who are pushing the “diversity” issues and they are relentless, which frankly, I am sick of hearing about it. Let them boycott the oscars. I could care less.

    Thanks for posting. Would be great to have some of us leave a more positive comment to off-set the negative there.

  • sassafrass

    What for? They’ve sunk millions of dollars into a film no one should have greenlit.

  • Julia

    Well Sassy, I guess that is a matter of opinion.

  • sassafrass

    Not really. People are laughing at an overbudgeted spectacle of CGI vomit.

  • Julia

    I haven’t seen the film but I do know that the negative remarks on all sites that I have read are all about the racial issues, not the film itself. And since you haven’t seen the movie either, it is nothing more than opinion on your part either. Agreeing to disagree and will leave it at that.

  • Too Funny.

    When’s the show going to start? You guys have no idea how much you entertain me.

  • TeaCakes

    Yes! I posted on another thread that usually the leads start hitting the talk shows a month before the preem. I see it all the time on Fallon etc when people bring clips with them to push their work. A month, sometimes it’s even earlier than that. There’s nothing at all ahead as far as talkshows for either of the two leads in GOE. I find that really disturbing. The film preems in two weeks…what is Lionsgate etc waiting for?

  • TeaCakes

    You’re probably right. I believe they had the right idea but to CGI it up so much cheapens the whole film IMO. I’ve read a lot of posts lately where people are snarking on Butler claiming he’s out to recreate Leonidas because it’s all he can do. Kinda makes ya wonder………

  • Guest

    I imagine it will be very quiet as he doesn’t have a gf at present.

  • TeaCakes

    You’re both right LOL

    Movies are one thing, awards are another. Only a loser with no talent stacks a deck in his favor. And that’s a “colorless” opinion.
    You should spend some “real” time with your real Gods of Egypt.
    *You all make us laugh*

    A FEW POINTS REGARDING CASTING GODS OF EGYPT

    1 My movie is not intended to be “history”. It is inspired by myth, a fantasy film – a work of the imagination. Therefore under the rules of creative license and artistic freedom of expression, I cast the actors I considered right for the roles. It is also of course everyone’s right to disagree with me. That’s art.

    2. It is common for actors to play a character of a different nationality to their own. Sean Connery a Scot played a Russian. Omar Sharif an Egyptian also played a Russian. Meryl Streep played an Australian. Anthony Quinn a Mexican played almost anybody “ethnic”! And every Australian actor puts on an American accent now and then and pretends to be a yank. There was an outcry when Chinese actors played Japanese characters in a fairly recent film but generally this isn’t a focus of concern. But of course there is a justified concern (as there should be) if casting against race is an example of “white-washing” i.e. casting a white actor to represent a person of colour for the specific reason to appeal to a perceived predominantly white audience — though ironically I doubt there really is such an audience any more in most parts of the world.

    3. Of course it is unlikely Ancient Egyptians were pre-dominantly or entirely caucasian, just as they are not today, though their art shows a mixture of skin colour during most dynasties. Is this recording of actuality, or symbolic or artistic representation therefore not meant literally? Perhaps modern Egypt’s mix of peoples is an indication of the ancients’ racial mix? Or perhaps not. I will not attempt to make any such argument either way – I just do not believe we know all the answers, and therefore any generalised statements will probably be erroneous. And as I have stated the movie is not trying to depict historic accuracy in any way.

    4. As a modern day Egyptian (of Greek ancestry which goes back to the time of Alexander the Great) I was born into a colour blind culture – and Egypt, like the countries immediately surrounding it, has been for at least the last two thousand years, a mixing pot of peoples – Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and African, a true cross-roads of civilisation, culturally and racially. Was this the case during the time of the pyramids? Perhaps not, but we do not know for certain. And of course Ancient Egypt spanned thousands of years — and was ruled by many different peoples.

    5. I cast the best actors for the roles. I stand by these decisions. The casting is an attempt to include ALL people – partly suggestive of the Egypt I know based on my own cultural heritage, but clearly and most importantly a work of the “imagination” — to exclude any one race in service of a hypothetical theory of historical accuracy, particularly in a film that is not attempting to be “history”, rather a fantasy film, would have been biased.

    6. Of course in a perfect world there would be a greater pool of english speaking Egyptian actors to draw upon for this movie, but the practicalities of production, the “names” which are required by studios to finance a movie of this scale, the fact the movie was entirely made in Australia with specific guidelines about how many “imported” actors we could include (due to financing Australian content “quota” requirements), all these aspects had a part to play in the casting of the movie.

    7. Finally, I do believe this movie is not the best one to soap-box issues of diversity with. Yes, in the wider argument, I do believe we need more people of colour and a greater cultural diversity in movies — after all Hollywood has spent a century or more making 95% of it’s content based in American culture, it is time for a change. And, as one example, I do agree that often great performances by black actors in Hollywood movies are over-looked by the Academy. But in the instance of this movie, and based on my own cultural heritage, I attempted to show racial diversity, black, white, asian, as far as I was allowed, as far as I could, given the limitations I was given. It is obviously clear that for things to change, for casting in movies to become more diverse many forces must align. Not just the creative. To those who are offended by the decisions which were made I have already apologised. I respect their opinion, but I hope the context of the decisions is a little clearer based on my statements here.

    Thanks for reading.

    Well, the comingsoon comments seem to be mostly about the hilarity of the trailer.
    I didn’t see one about race.

    Breath taking! Thank you Lace! I love it too! I could stare at him forever. You know, if all else fails, he could always become a model. LOL!! :):) Although, I think he took this picture especially for Sonia and he’s staring at her and saying I wore this sweater especially for you Lass! Now come here and give me a hug! LOL! Sonia, you got your brooding stare and turtle neck all in one! :):):)

    I laughed till I cried from reading that one thread….she’s ranting like a lunatic and not listening to anyone there. Some of those posters are quite good at figuring out what’s going on. She never learns.

    Met #gerardbutler today! We go to the same physical therapist. Never been so starstruck in my life! Started the conversation with “i started working out because of 300″ and then he gave me the warmest smile. None of the other patients knew who he was smh. I asked him for a picture and he replied, “i would love that”. Such a nice and humble man!
