Troy the Movie
Troy the movie is looking like the blockbuster epic movie of 2004
Can't wait - I have seen a couple of very short Troy movie clips that are visualy beautiful, violent & vast.
Lets hope the realism of the big fight scenes don't end up on the cutting room floor, in the movie Moguls quest for a PG rating. Troy the Movie image gallery
Troy snippetts and latest quotes- most
of the extras for the battle scenes filmed in Mexico are Bulgarians, flown
Q to Brad Pitt - are people going to walk out over the violence of the Troy Battle scenes ? Brad Pitt "Your own level of maturity is going to define whether you walk out,"
Wolfgang Peterson Director of Troy - "I very much wanted to go with reality, the bloodiest and most realistic ever" Blood spurts, limbs are lopped off, and heads roll. "Not a PG then" " Troy Battle scenes shocking in their brutality"
The ancient city of Troy viewed from seaward
Throughout time, men have waged war. Some for power, some for glory, some for honor - and some for love.
In ancient Greece, the passion of two of history's most legendary lovers, Paris, Prince of Troy (Orlando Bloom) and Helen of Troy (Diane Kruger), Queen of Sparta, ignites a war that will devastate a civilization. When Paris steals Helen away from her husband, King Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson), it is an insult that cannot be suffered. Family pride dictates that an affront to Menelaus is an affront to his brother Agamemnon (Brian Cox), powerful King of the Myceneans, who soon unites all the massive tribes of Greece to steal Helen back from Troy in defense of his brother's honor.
According to Homers account of
the battle of Troy, the Greek
put TWELVE captured Trojans on the funeral pyre of his comrade-in-arms, Patroclus.
The war at Troy
was important to the Greeks because it was the story of their heroic ancestors.
Consequently many poems were composed about this war, including the Troy Cycle,
a series of epics that dealt with the entire Trojan
War from its mythic origins in a quarrel of the gods to the homecomings of
the weary Greek heroes after the end of the war. All of these epics have been
lost, except for two by Homer---the Iliad and the Odyssey.
Homer's epics were composed orally, but were eventually written down and became almost a bible for later Greeks, because they were considered history as well as poetry, and because their language was so brilliant.
Without Homer's wonderful poems, the story of Troy might have remained a Greek story; instead it endured and evolved over many centuries into a central story of the origins of western civilization.
