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.

I liked it. It was humorous while it had the Indie feel to it.
...*Eye Twithces* ...
I love the humor. So odd that it makes me want to see it. The music is win.
Everybody calm down. This is not for an actual movie. It's a spoof - a well done spoof.
Interesting but this makes me really want to see a real God of war movie, and not with real actors, we want the CG look from the game.
Those aren't tennis rackets. They're badminton rackets. How insulting.
Sacrilegious!! The real Kratos should kick all of their asses. >:-(
If anyone's seen the movie "Away We Go" the part at the end, where it gets all sketchy and says "God Of War"...It's basically the exact same...I love it. Not to mention this looks like it could be one of the greatest movies ever spawned.
His outfit is probably the coolest thing (or set of things) I've ever seen.
Someone should be shot for this..
haha I actually want to watch that, what song is that by the way?
Wow! That turned out to be much better than I had expected! Great music choice (nothing like a little edward sharpe to go with GOW)
Now this is a Monday morning diversion! Thank you! XD
first off, "Athena" is really beutifull. if i had a half sister godess.. j/k. secondly, this looks hillarious, i might actually see this if it was made into a real movie.
This is f***ing gay.
I would totally buy the special Blu Ray edition of this flick.
