Trailer: Empires of the Deep

3:00 PM on 10.25.2012 // Nick Valdez

Empires of the Deep has a very strange development history. Apparently, production started for EOTD back in 2009 as the brain child of a Chinese real estate guy Jon Jiang. Jiang casted the lead and director, but all three of them left soon after. Then a second director came into the production, and left shortly thereafter. Then Micheal French came in to finish and Olga Kurylenko came in to star. On top of all of this, the film ended up costing $130 million, not in Bison dollars, but in dollar dollars. 

After all of that, I kind of wish the end product would have been worth it. But...uh...yeah...
