Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra

While Batman, Spiderman, and even the Incredible Hulk are the comic book heroes the Americans make movies after, you can expect the French to not be so crass, and keep the comic book feel to their comic book movies.

Asterix & Obelix: Mission CleopatraAsterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra is the sequel to Asterix and Obelix Vs. Caesar, the most expensive ($48 million budget) and one of the most commercially successful French films ever made, (raked in $96 million worldwide without ever opening in the US), has a ton of fun spoofing the Elizabeth Taylor film, Cleopatra in a tale of what happens when the famous Gauls, Asterix and Obelix, meet the Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra.

The plot specifically deals with a wager that she makes with Caesar that she can have a palace built in three months… Filmed on exotic locations including France, Malta, and Morocco, I quite liked the first one, so I’m really looking forward to this sequel with a big fat joint.
