The first trailer for the Starz series “Camelot” was released today. The show stars Eva Green and “Flash Forward” star Joseph Fiennes, along with Jamie Campbell Bower, one of those Twilight/Harry Potter boys the teen girls probably go wacky for. Looks like the series will have epic fight scenes, spinning aerial shots of castles, and sexy ladies having sex. We might have been on board for this…
Until 1:08, when the 30 Seconds To Mars song “This Is War” kicks in. Yeah, the title is “This Is War,” but let’s face it, “This Is A Seriously Lame Song Choice For A Medieval Period Show.” It took me out of the stor faster than a bunch of actors riding horses through a series of outdoor locations. Whoever invited Jared Leto‘s band into Camelot, please kindly throw him into the moat outside the castle.
