Same old stories, over and over and over again, with new CGI effects. I enjoy the CGI as much as anyone, but can we make some movies about ancient mythology/history that haven't done before? How about the book of Jasher, or the book of Enoch? How about the Sumerian story of creation? Anything but this story, and the few others perpetually re-made, decade after decade.
I do like Ridley, but he can do better than this.

One of my favorite animated films is Dreamworks 'Prince of Egypt', I thinks it surpasses any Disney movie and I don't assign myself to any particular religion. This seems to be the film version of that and I'm looking forward to it.

Please do read this, I have a very real life eXample pertaining to this trailer of how dangerous white washing is: I showed my girlfriend the trailer and she said she didn't see any thing wrong with the casting. After I showed her Ancient Egyptian art portraying Pharaohs and Queens, she then admitted that maybe she has seen too many Hollywood movies! This is so sad for a people's image to be completely altered in the minds of the unsuspecting public. The Mass Media is such a powerful tool, either those in control have to use it responsibly or we should demand that they do. Anyone that doesn't see this blatant white-washing as not just 'mis-cast actors,' but as dangerous and destructive is either just ignorant of the issue or selfish and callous.

It's not necessarily Historically Inaccurate to have these White men Play these Egyptian Kings and religious figures. King Rhamses II has red hair, blondish red hair, a European trait...Clearly illustrating that a host of European Genes had more than found their way to northern Africa.... So. it's not so far fetched to have Joel Edgarton, who's slightly a redhead with big blue eyes to play Rhamses in this film.
Grace and everyone here are just racist and have no idea what they're speaking about half the time, So Anxious to claim "This is White washing", "That is White Washing"...do a little research bro.
