Trailer: "Empires of the Deep" Mermaid Film Cost $130 Million and Looks Like Trash Posted: October 24th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Almost four years ago, we heard of the $130 million Chinese-American sci-fi project called "Empires of the Deep," that had actress Monica Bellucci, director Pitof (Catwoman), and producer Irvin Kershner (Empire Strikes Back) on board. Chinese real estate tycoon Jon Jiang wrote the script and partially financed the film wil his own money. Soon after, everyone dropped out and were later replaced by people who also dropped out. In the end, Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) ended up as the Queen of the Mermaid empire, while founders of the special effects company E-Imagine Studio took the producing credits (and likely most of the money). Today, we have a trailer for "Empires of the Deep," which revolves around a young man, who gets involved in a battle between mermaids, monsters and demons while attempting to save his father.

I just can't believe they paid Olga Kurylenko 129 million to star in this piece of sh*t.

Yeah, remember-remember.They had a sh*tload of production problems thanks to this chinese "investor" hanging around on sets.
Could've been worse. I expected someone on Uwe Boll's scale. Turns out it's just another "War of Dinosaurs" of whatever that korean borefest was called.

You know it's sh*t when Alex doesn't add an advert before the trailer.
Looks like something Doug McClure would have starred in back in the 70's.

They just need to get Monica Bellucci back on board, Then add a ton of naked and f*cking scenes, Problem solved

this doesn't like like it cost 130 mil...horrible cgi...the first production probably cost most of the money and we will never get to see the footage of that.

How to spend $130 million on making a movie:
- computers: $129 million
- people behind computers: $800,000
- art director: $1000
- editing crew: $1000
- casting: $1000
There you have it ... you can keep the change.
