Loosely based on Theseus and Titanmarchy. Made in the same style as 300. It will make things interesting for the future Historians and Classicist. It assures me that my passion is not a dead one.
I would like to say that even though I will hate everything they do to this movie- I will appreciate its effects and gore for the sake that younger generations are inspired and search out the true knowledge or dedicate their life to the Ancient World.
I will say that I hope one day to be making movies as a proper historian and while I do understand that this movie will sell tickets and rake in an income it gives me hope that more Ancient Movies will be made.
They wait for poor Elizabeth Taylor to die before making this movie. HOW CAN THEY REMAKE IT!??!
Reportedly the movie is still in the process of being made- thought Jolie claims that her performance will not be a lovely as Taylors. Let us hope it is better than her creepy portrayal of Olympias. It was nice, but a little over done.
It is stated the release is due out for 2013 and the appeal of the movie will not a sex appeal but of her true ruthless reign as pharoah.I respect this, because honestly- what is there sexy about this:
She seems plain at best. I wonder if they will "The Hours" Angelina Jolie the way they did Nicole Kidman. Since Cleopatra did have a nose on her.
Personally I think Margret George's version of A Memoirs of Cleoptra would be an awesome adpatation if not for a movie then a series. :)
