Dude, You Are So Gay… I Mean, Such a Kinaidos

Word has it that the new Oliver stone pic about Alexander the Great actually depicts him as bisexual (quelle horreur!). Despite Warner Bros. insisting on cutting out many of the more provocative scenes (and a bunch of macho Greek lawyers trying to sue - nice try, macho Greek lawyers), it still remains to be seen how the public will react to it. The target audience for this sort of ancient-war movie is generally young hetero males. Will they go to it if they find out Alex plays for both teams? Or will the Warner trailers that avoid the subject fool them into a surprise?

I'm skeptical, but I'll probably go see it. Now let's see what Hollywood does with Brokeback Mountain...
