Yeah. That'd be like posting a pic of Jon Lovitz and inviting all Satanists to worship at his feet. That movie is a slap in the face to just about all that is sane.


*grumbles something about white actors.

I would like to see it. I'm a Gerard Butler fan. I also would like to see how they worked the mythology into a movie. However, I agree with you Medusa. It seems they always put white actors in roles that need more ethnic actors.

I was about to say, why is just about everyone white?

Yeah there's no diversity in this movie.

The casting is an important part of a movie and, in this case, it's not just about how good the actors are. If your movie is about Egypt, you should at least cast people that resemble Egyptians. These actors look more like Greeks or Romans, though. Also, too much CGI. It worries me.

I think this movie is racist and there's only one black actor that I saw in the preview.

Every actor in this movie should at least be brown. There is a distinct lack of brown.

It is a MOVIE..a fantasy generally. I think mainly MONEY is the deciding factor in its production,not its being politically correct. When Hollywood becomes less interested in the MONEY factor perhaps we will see a movie with ethnic actors that fit the time and place.

The director actually said 'sorry' for the lack of diversity.

Perhaps. But it seems that many people are complaining about the lack of diversity. If they don't please the audience, their money will be lost. Even if it's Hollywood they should be aware of this possibility since people are paying more attention to some details (like the one being discussed here).

What that the location of the movie theater have to do with this subject that we're talking about? :confused:

Not the location,the PLUSH movie experience...To get people to even go out for a movie..not just wait for the DVD..and the big screen TV.

Matters little if the movie is diverse,if no one will go see it.

Ok,I know,you have all that at home with the BIG screen TV,the super sound system and the food of your desire..and also a short walk if you want to go to sleep too. A staycation to be sure.

I'm not even sure if I want to see that movie. I really don't think it's Oscar material. :(

Ok I just decided that I'm going to see this movie. Maybe this movie won't be so bad despite without diversity.
