Last summer it was announced that Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Patrick Stewart had signed on for the film Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage. Not much has been heard from this production since, but now the first trailer has been released featuring a voice-over from Stewart, check it out below, and check out the not-so-favorable reactions too.
Stewart in Sinbad movie – reaction not good so far
Here is the new trailer for Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage:
The film is a low-budget production and instead of CGI, appears to be using stop-motion animation in an homage to the legendary Ray Harryhausen. Stewart’s voiceover suggests he is playing an older Sinbad, thinking back on his youth and fifth voyage. The younger Sinbad is played by Shahin Sean Solimon.
Reaction to the trailer has not been positive so far. WorstPreviews calls it "Terrible", Cinebland calls it a "crappy knockoff", Blogomatic wonders if Stewart did the film "as a favor", and Entertainment Weekly suggests "it’s supposed to look kinda bad"
