The lights are on
When Game Informer's Editor-In-Chief Andy McNamara told me that a God of War movie trailer hit the web, I thought I'd be looking at a 300 million dollar budget, CG-heavy summer blockbuster for 2011; not an indie film in the vein of Rushmore. This is GamerVision's third video game film. This studio has also brought us Inglorious Plummers and Maniac Mansion.
GamerVision's interpretation of Sony's blockbuster series retains many of the familiar characters, but the story looks to be its own mythological monster. Josh Henderson plays the role of Kratos, an orphan who just enrolled at the Spartan Academy. Rather than killing gods, Kratos' mission is to win the love of Athena. Athena's father is Zeus. Kratos' father is Zeus. Being the good father he is, Zeus doesn't want Kratos to see Athena. Even knowing that they are related, Kratos and Athena lust for each other. And...well...check out the trailer below.

So, let me see if I've got this straight. The film is about two siblings who want to get jiggy with each other?
Well, at least they're being faithful to ancient Greek customs.
This looks like a movie where this geek named Kratos for some reason i think is obsess with god of war and must face real life.
I don't actually know if I found this interesting or not.
Besides the guy who plays Kratos looks like Cole from infamous.
wat a bullsh**
Do I hear Oscar buzz?
Okay, who left the face paint where Tim could find it?
Well, this is definitely going to be an original movie.
This actually looks surprisingly interesting, and silly, although trailers are almost always better than their films. I expected to be hating on this just because it's making fun of one of my faves, however, like the joke song on the metal GoW soundtrack, found myself laughing at it a little.
Good for them... better than myself and alot of other people are doing. (doing the creative thing, not the doing your sister thing).
Ha, that's great, anyone know what movie it's based off of?
WTF is this Stupid Sht?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA This is still better than uva bolls movies!
Dude that shirt needs to be DLC....
That was completely ridiculous! Hahaha, that reminded me of the Halo movie spoof Bungie did on April Fools Day.
I really hope that they don't think this is somehow a clever spoof. It's not even the least bit humorous.
Yes! It looks so modern for a '01 BC timeline. I like Athena. She's cute.
Incest? Fund It!
Wow I didn't know this was actually a movie trailer, I thought it was a spoof. I kindof want to see it.
