Star-Studded God of War Ragnarok Trailer Has Ben Stiller, John Travolta, & LeBron James Deal With Dad Problems

Ben Stiller, John Travolta, and LeBron James walk into a bar...

Today Sony released a brand-new trailer of God of War Ragnarok, and it’s full of stars.

Specifically, we get to see actors Ben Stiller and John Travolta, and basketball player LeBron James as they gather in a parent support group with their children.

Of course, it’s all about God of War Ragnarok. Ben Stiller is also wearing a Kratos costume, which adds value to the whole thing.

The father-son dynamic was extremely important in the original God of War, so I’d be surprised if it wasn’t the same in God of War Ragnarok, and it’s pretty hilarious to see this trailer joke around about it.

It’s definitely funny, but I won’t spoil it any more. You can check it out for yourself below.

The press release also includes comment from each of the stars mentioned above.

Ben Stiller: “Putting on the Kratos beard and makeup felt very empowering. The war paint really is useful in terms of letting people know you mean business. I found the beard made me feel wiser…though [my son] Quin didn’t seem to feel that at all.”

LeBron James: “Something about having the Leviathan Axe in your hand transports you to a different world. We all play the games on the screen, but being able to bring those moments to life and connect in a different way is a pretty cool thing.”

John Travolta: “Similar to Kratos and Atreus, the balance of ‘holding on and letting go’ is a dynamic many parents can relate to. There’s no better feeling than seeing your child grow and mature into the best versions of themselves.”

God of War Ragnarok will release for PS4 and PS5 on November 9, 2022. It will serve as a sequel of the adventures of Kratos and Atreus following the previous God of War game released in 2018 for PS4 and earlier this year for PC.
