Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings faced it and so did Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Now it’s Gods of Egypt that’s being accused of cinematic colonialism. Among the main cast, there is only one visible minority (Chadwick Boseman) among the bunch and no actual Middle Eastern actors. The trailer, which debuted this week, once again raises Hollywood’s inclination to whitewash history.

Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau star in the fantasy flick from Lionsgate. I’m all about diversity and equal opportunity, but cultural appropriation has gone too far. People are way too sensitive these days IMHO. Any actor, regardless of what color, should play whatever part they want. It’s called acting. It’s not like Butler and crew are wearing blackface.

Am I being overly insensitive here and missing the point? Movies are meant to entertain and are a form escapism. Gods of Egypt is definitely not a historical lesson of what actually happened nor should it be. Watch the trailer below and weigh in afterward.

Gods Of Egypt Movie Synopsis

The survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek [Brenton Thwaites] undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world. In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful and vengeful god Horus [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau] in an unlikely alliance against Set [Gerard Butler], the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to prevail in the epic final confrontation.

Season 5 of Game of Thrones is just around the corner. Who else is counting the days???

In anticipation of its April 12 premiere, GQ Australia put two of the fantasy drama’s hot male stars on the cover of its March/April 2015 issue. Both Kit Harington and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau smolder in their respective pictures.

If the images look familiar, you’re very perceptive. Harington’s was first shown on last year’s GQ Style Bible and Coster-Waldau’s pics were from GQ Espana’s Feb 2015 issue according to

 I don’t blame the publication for recycling the photos from previous editions. Both look fine as hell. But which stud is hotter? Sound off below in the comments section.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Covers Men’s Health

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Just because I don’t watch Game of Thrones doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the hotness that is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays Jaime Lannister on the HBO series. Truth be told, this sexy Danish actor has been on my radar since I first set my eyes on him in Wimbledon starring Kristen Dunst and Paul Bettany. That scene in the steam room with Bettany and Coster-Waldau wearing just towels and dripping in sweat was kinda hot. Love, set and match indeed.

The 42-year-old actor appears on the May 2013 cover of Men’s Health. In addition to posing for photographer Nino Munoz for a series of photos, Nikolaj goes “medieval on your abs.” I can think of a couple of other body parts where he can get all medieval 😉 For the accompanying interview, he discuss his acting process, favorite movie and losing Vertical Limit to Chris O’Donnell because he blew his audition big time. Check out a few quotes and photos from the publication below.

Game of Thrones Release 12 Character Posters

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Last week, HBO released the first official poster for Season 3 of Game of Thrones. That artwork simply featured a dragon’s shadow, show title and premiere date. Side note: I was walking with Nic and a few friends in Santa Monica when we stumbled upon a bus with the image. For some reason Nic kept turning his head around. He was looking for what was casting the dragon shadow on the bus. LOL. Clearly someone was still drunk from the previous night 😉

The network just released a slew of new images to promote the March 31 premiere. The 12 character posters will launch outdoor and print next week, but you can check all of them out below. I have to say, even though the images are meant to be haunting, a few of guys look super sexy. Most notably Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and Richard Madden (Robb Stark). Their scruffy looks put me over the edge. Check them all out below.

Last week, I shared the first photo from the upcoming Guillermo Del Toro thriller called Mama, and I also had shared the short film of the same name that the the movie is based on. Today the actual trailer for this upcoming fright flick just came out and we’ve got your first look.

The trailer fully lives up to my expectations, and I’m not surprised given that Del Toro is also the one who brought us Pan’s Labyrinth. The film stars a sexy Jessica Chastain as the woman who ends up being an acting mother for two children who lived alone in the woods after their parents were killed. That being said, their real mother may not be entirely gone and she doesn’t seem too keen on the new family arrangement. The kids try to protect their “stand-in” mother from the wrath of Mama by trying to limit any affection, but it’s seems like the damage is already done.

From this first look, Mama appears to be a film that will succeed at making you jump, scream, and hold your breath for a good chunk of the movie. Enjoy the trailer below!

If the short film that this movie is based on is any indication, this is gonna be one scary movie. This upcoming film titled Mama by the talented Guillermo del Toro tells the story of two children that went missing after their mother died.

After five years, the children have been found, and apparently they had survived alone in a cabin in the forest that whole time. Lucas, their uncle, and his girlfriend Annabel are faced with the challenge of raising his nieces that had been left alone. Or were they actually alone?

As shown above, the film stars Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier, Isabelle Nélisse and Daniel Kash. You should definitely check out the short film that this movie is based on below. So creepy!
