A common thief joins a mythical god on a quest through Egypt.
so….now African Gods are white men? smh…this country-this society breaks my heart daily.
So Jaime got his hand back then. but lost an eye. It’s a fair trade
im egyptian and im not white or black most of egyptian people are semi brown and ancient Egypt borders were from egypt borders now plus sudan and thats why ancient egyptians were black and semi brown but in egypt we dont have that racist thing u Americans got going on u lived together for some centuries we lived together for more than 7 thousand years so stop all that ancient egyptians were black or white ancient egyptians were ancient egyptians and stop trying to steal our history and saying that we are not egyptians we know our history and our ancestors
why did you people leave the movie and talking about are egyptians black or white iam egyptian and in egypt we have black and white like any others country it dose not matter the color what ,matter is humans
This is the fakest thing I have seen which I wont be watching in the cinema. Gerard Butler is Scottish. How can he represent ANYTHING about Egypt??? Absolute insult
Where are the Egyptians? #Disappointed … #Again
Okay but…where..are the Egyptians…
We Egyptians who are looking for them. We, who seems to you by the TV [we are terrorists, our land is desert and we have only the pyramids and the Sphinx ..But we are not like this similarity We the people of liberty-loving and loves peace and tolerant People has a wealth popularity and social People that has a great wealth of knowledge and science people That has civilization People has a high efficient development with the times People are attacking him from most of the countries in order not to promote Egypt, which does not know much about it, but most …. ^_^ we aren’t Black people !!! w are both ( white and blach ) and most of us (White ) Thanks For Reading 😉 ——————————————————————– نحن المصريين الذين تبحثون عنهم. نحن الذين يبدو لك من قبل التلفزيون [اننا ارهابيون، أرضنا عبارة عن صحراء وليس لدينا سوى الأهرامات وأبو الهول .. لكن نحن ليست مثل هذا التشابه نحن شعب الحرية-المحبة والسلام والتسامح نحن شعب لديه شعبية ..وثروة إجتماعية نحن شعب لدية ثروة كبيرة من العلم والمعرفة نحن شعب لدية حضارة عظيمة نحن شعب لديها كفاءة عالية على التطور مع الزمن نحن الدولة التى تهاجم من دول كثيرة لكى لا تنهض بشعبها مصر . التى لا تعرف عنها الكشير بل الأكثر شكراً لقرائتك
So the blacks claim Egyptians were black while the whites claim they were blondes. Open your eyes people, Egyptians were as they are today, olive, tan and brown with a little white and black sprinkled here and there. BTW, they were also not related to Indians in anyway.
Hollywood will never stop hiring white folks to play other nationalities because that is what sells in the western countries. Blacks need to make their own movie industry and hire only black actors to play other nationalities and other countries need to do the same. These are the facts of life so live with it folks!
In a world were we should be “colorblind”… people argue because the characters “don’t look Egyptian enough”? This is as silly as when people were pulling their hair because one of the main characters in Star Wars is not “white enough” to be a main character. I suppose the (lack of) acting skills is no longer an issue, just how “black”, “white” or “tanned” an actor looks *rolls eyes*
hey what happen to the tribes? where are the kushites, the shemites, the hamites, and the nubians
i’m egyptian we’re not black or white we’re something between both of them we can say brown.and by the way the color doesn’t matter.
What. The Hell. Did. I. Just. Watch?
To be fair, Egyptian actors might not have as much pull as Gerard Butler would have. Secondly, this is not Egyptian Hollywood, ergo not Egyptian money that goes into the making of this movie. Just because this movie is getting its material from Egypt it doesn’t mean the jobs should go there as well. Hollywood is not a non-profit organisation mind you. Bottom line is, take it or leave it, and use it to motivate you to make your own stuff in the future.
Instead of wasting millions of dollars on a film exploiting the glory of Kemet hell all of Alkebulan and its Black people, deities, orischas, philosphies, symbols, etc.
Just say, We wish we melanted and could claim such greatness as our own #TheyHateUsCuzTheyAintUs
The original Egyptians were African who were later conquered by Arabs making Arabic the official language of Egypt. I guess Hollywood still haven’t looked at the map and saw Egypt as an African country yet huh? First they made the mistake having Elizabeth Taylor play Cleopatra and now this??? White Amerikkka don’t want us African-Americans to know that we are the true descendants of kings and queens so they want to white wash out history yet again. This movie gets 3 thumbs down ? ? ?
The real Egyptians were ARAB! Dear blacks stop trying to take credit for my people’s civilization. Lol.
I am an Egyptian, and this is bullshit. One day we will have better movie production and we will expose your stupidity and creation of stereotypes.
Getting money from ruining the image of my history? Not for long.
People really need to calm down about the white actors and british accents, it’s a *fantasy adventure* movie. Like I don’t mean to startle you, but pharaoh’s also didn’t have the ability to turn into armored flying gods and ride giant snakes.
Um, why is it all white people?
After this I wouldn’t be surprised if they did a movie of Nelson Mandela where he’s portrayed by Brad Pitt.
This movie is so white, Soon they say the whole African continent was occupied by white ppl
It’s always so amazing to me to see that hollywood as no issue hiring black actors to play painful roles like the ones where they are slaves or suffering during the civil rights movement but when it comes to them being in power they continuously cast white actors. It’s almost like they only want to see black people in pain and not give credit to them creating one of the most advanced civilizations to exist in the ancient world, egypt. What other reason would hollywood have to keep casting white people in roles that should be played by black actors? We had our country colonized only to have our history suffer the same fate smh.
Greek Gods>egyptian gods.
When did all these Europeans move to Africa?
Ancient Africans were BLACK. Not Arab, not White…but Dark Skinned Brown (Black) people. This is a fact. Stop trying to change our truth.
This looks cheap and poorly done, I couldn’t even finish the trailer! What a shame!! Also, why are egyptians so white? I am not for everyone to be ebony black, but this is just ridiculous- the Mummy did a much better job! there we at least had middle-eastern-kinda looking people., but here? All white as a snow! Wow….Not watching.
Where are the Egyptians? I dont mean it like skin color stuff or anything, Like Real Egyptian Actors.
Egyptians were BLACK and ARAB!!!! It’s almost embarrassing how many people here are historically retarded.
To all the people who claim Egyptians are black: Egyptians don’t have a specific color like African. There are white, brown and Black Egyptians (but most of them are brown). How do I know that? I live in Egypt. And in adv. if you say they’re Arabs studies show that most of Egyptian are descendants from the ancient Egyptians not the Arabs.
@thataussiegirl gotdammit i like the way you think… it rare to find such a realist nowadays!
Egypt was actually conquered by Alexander the Great….so yeah seeing white people in the lead isn’t too far fetched.
People were outraged at the thought of a black 007… some more people were outraged that the main character in the new star wars is black… plenty more were pissed at the human torch being black…. but now we have a movie about Egypt (which is in Africa) with all white actors… #SomebodyHelpMeIDontUnderstand #TheyLoveTalkingDownOnAfrica #UntilItsAMovieAboutTheEgyptians
AND THE ORIGINAL EGYPITIANS ARE STILL IN EGYPT THERE CALLED COPTS OR COPTIC……..and they are tan
Dear blacks, just because your ancestors did nothing you can be proud of doesn’t give you the right to claim the glory of my Egyptian ancestors as yours, only the 27th dynasty was black since they invaded Egypt and we kicked them and enslaved them. If your feelings are hurt kiss my white Egyptian ass
Lets do a Hollywood version of Greek mythology casting all African American actors. Troy starring Wesley Snipes.
This is all wrong. We demand accurate cultural representation please. Egyptians looked nothing like this. Egypt has been invaded so many times…
Who cares if they’re white! Even if they were real Egyptians I’m pretty sure it would still have bad acting and cgi
Im not mad about the bleached Egyptians or the poor CGI, Im pissed off that they made Set look like Anubis and gave him an army of Iron Man’s.
A movie that takes place in Africa with one black person in the preview. I think we should have danny devito play Martin Luther King.#boycottgodsofegypt
Man cant wait to see this movie Exodus Gods and Kings…..Ogh my bag, I mean God of Egypt
Ancient Egyptians are not black and will never be considered black no matter how many cultural Marxist sources tell you they are or no matter how many black snake oil salesmen sell you that DVD. Wake up…..Reality is calling.
Funny how one of the most ethnically divers places in the world (Hollywood) will only cast Europeans in movies based in African Nations. Pathetic
calm down people we put another black man in Star Wars you should be happy
Cry afrocentrists! Cry! Haha. The Egyptians were not white but they were not black either. All egyptians laugh their asses when they hear about black and other afrocentrists claiming that Egypt was black.

Why they are all white? Because in the mind of Hollywood executives, diversity means a lose of capital. People will not watch this movie if they cast Arabs or black or mix people in general. It is just business. However, this doesn’t mean o agree with this portrait.
The EXACT same people complaining about white actors in this film, want to see a black James Bond. Shows you who the real racists in the world are. Racism is racism; its not okay to be racist against skin pigmentation, even white skin for those of you who don’t seem to get it. This whole skin nit-picking is utterly silly. Fix your brains.
WTF??? where are the Egyptians???
“Ancient Egypt was a racially diverse place, because the Nile River drew people from all over the region. Egyptian writings do not suggest that the people of that era had a preoccupation with skin color. Those who obeyed the king, spoke the language, and worshipped the proper gods were considered Egyptian. Outsiders were allowed to marry Egyptians. Even the aristocracy was racially integrated.”
the next thing will be japanese mythology with caucasian actors.
Haha look at all the minorities being jealous of white people again. You’re blind hatred is hilarious.
ok now I’m confused here Egypt is located in Africa right but no black people as the God’s but rather peasants??
“Hollywood is crazy. First they had The Mexican with Brad Pitt and now the have The Last Samurai with Tom Cruise. Well, I’ve written a film. Maybe they’ll produce my film. The Last N*gga on Earth starring Tom Hanks” – Paul Mooney
One, you can take all your religious beliefs and flush them down the crapper, because if you think for one minute that is really history, go back to school… It is all an elaborate exaggeration. Enjoy the movie for what it is, good actors and good acting.
I thought race was just a “social construct”? Why all the fuss?
People in the comments complaining about them being white. WHO CARES in all honesty do you think you should be offended or are you just saying it because you think you should be offended. If it’s a good movie then SKIN COLOR DOESN’T MATTER.
Wow, for a movie that cost $140m, this looks shit
So Egyptian gods can’t be white, but when Idris Elba plays a Norse god everything is ok? Hypocrites
I’m going to watch it!
Look on the bright side, at least you won’t be bumping into black people in the theater room when you’ll go and watch the movie since they’ll be too busy with their black parade. ?
What with the whitewashing? Gerard Butler looks like a god, but to portray Egyptians they should have hired *Dwayne Johnson*!
Why is everyone crying about the race of the people pretending to be in a different time period? It’s not real idiots, that’s why they call them actors. Nobody would be pulling the race card if everyone in the movie was black, which would be equally inaccurate.
“Gods of Egypt” featuring white people.
Well, i have never think of egyptians as black people, but more like this typical tanned white arabs. Am i so wrong?
It’s funny that I watched the preview a couple of times and didn’t even notice the race/color of the actors/actresses. Then I started reading the comments below and saw how myopic and race-oriented some people are. If you like the preview go see the movie…if you don’t stay home and whine about this or that. It’s really pretty simple. I could dare less what race they are as long as the movie is decent.
White people love to tell black people to go back to Africa. According to this movie there is no black people in Africa either…smh
it is so bad we only have on god لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله
I went to the comments to see more about Egyptian mythology, just saw people arguing.
what the hell is this shit?
Double standards. It was just huge uproar about a black James Bond.
Sigh… let me break down why I (and I believe many others) are disappointed by this film. Its not just this film by itself that is so problematic its that this film is the latest in a long line of Hollywood films where Egyptians are portrayed as white people. This Hollywood proclivity is only a reflection of the old belief among white academics and white cultures that Egyptians were this random group of white people in Africa. You see many people of European descent have been fascinated with Egypt for a long time. However, admitting that Africans had an advanced ancient civilization that had a big impact on the ancient European founders of “western” civilization is difficult when you also believe that Africans are sub-humans only fit for manual labor. So why not pretend the ancient Egyptians were white and try to convince everyone of that as well?! On top of that there are so few Hollywood roles that fit people of color well ESPECIALLY when it comes to period films, and this one comes around, which would be PERFECT but its..all..white. As a person of African descent I would love to see a representation of my ancient ancestors on film just like anyone else, but since there is no hint of ancient West African history or folklore, I feel like Egypt is a good compromise. Yes I know the average ancient Egyptian probably looked just as different from the average African American as from the average European descent person, but damn it they could have at least got some brown actors. If not North African or middle eastern They could been different and cast some Latino or Desi actors. Anyway, as much shit as I talked about this movie the special effects look too good to pass up and the story seems pretty fun so I’ll probably catch it on Netflix or Redbox or something, but I am Definitely not spending money to watch more white washing of ancient Egypt. #Disappointed… #Again
Report Azir for feeding Nasus.
What else do you expect from hollywood racism?
So they take a movie about EGYPTIAN/AFRICAN/BLACK GODS and have nothing but white actors in orange spray tan… Oh and lets not forget the ONE historically/nationality correct BLACK MAN, the “token”… Hollywood always wants to take black mythology, history and whitewash it but you fools keeps bringing up IDRIS ELBA playing in Thor as a damn gatekeeper. Fyi,The people who worshipped and believed in those EGYPTIAN/AFRICAN/BLACK gods were BLACK PEOPLE. You can’t take our culture, put white people in spray tan in it, use a bunch of special effects, label it “Fantasy” and say its ok… They’ll have black people playing in #GodsOfEgypt as #Servants, #Slaves and #Villians but NOT as the actual gods? Black Hollywood needs to clap back and stop staying silent. We need to start taking all white historical figures like Alexander the great, Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin and make them ALL BLACK… Better yet make them black amd tell the filthy dark truth about them. I hope this movie tanks horribly.
Egypt is in Africa to all who are too dumb to realize. The ancient Egyptians were black before the greeks invaded the damn country. Why else would the director apologize for putting a cast of all white actors and actresses, he knows what time it is. Trying to rewrite history by making people believe Egypt was full of whites. All of these young white kids who think otherwise need to go to Africa and get a reality check.
As soon as a black person is in a film (Star Warz) everyone wants to get all bent out of shape, even commit suicide. Some white people are really disturbed. Too much brainwashing going on and a lot of people who think they know the truth but know absolutely nothing at all. America was built on a lie, stolen land and slavery. How can we believe anything you say.
wtf are Egyptian ppl cast as white its in Africa for God’s sake stop with your bs
i find it great even better than the batman v superman trailer and i cant wait for it
Black history with no black people!????? WTF!!
is this a movie???
you muthafuckers in Hollywood have lost you damn minds
King Leonidas Vs. KIngslayer
why people say egypt is black because it is in africa then why dont mexicans look like canadians they are in the continent too
Leonidas vs. Jaime Lannister 🙂 Epic haha
The Green Screen in 1:22 looks f*cking horrible.
I thought.. let’s check this trailer. Looks like it’s biblical. Then I check it and I see human fly :v Hilarious!
did jamie lannister lost his eye instead of his hand?
Just to put an end to all these arguments. I’m Egyptian, so I guess I’m qualified enough to judge. The actors don’t look Egyptian at all. Egyptians are neither Black nor white. We have The features of people of middle east + Caucasians + Black and It depends on which region. The majority of Egyptians have tan skin, dark eyes and dark curly or wavy hair. I find it absolutely annoying that we are being misrepresented in almost every single movie. The title of This movie should be Gods of Greece not Gods of Egypt. This is ridiculous !
egyptian mytology is my favoriote ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! p.s. anubis hype
Can someone PLEASE start a Hollywood for minorities. I literally gave up on the entertainment crap that comes out in this country a long time ago.
Stargate did it better….. nothing about the race junk here.
Everybody…just shut up and watch the movie! Tired of everyone bringing out the race crap. Don’t like it…don’t watch it! Better yet…read the book when its out and go from there.
I’m just here to find out more about Ross Lynch’s girlfriend Courtney.
This looks like an over budget, cgi constipated shit fest
Nice to see all of the practical effects and on-location shooting for a change!
I’m the Egyptions suckers
