I have to be honest, I completely forgot this movie even existed or was even a thing, but indeed, “Dark City” and “I, Robot” director Alex Proyas has made a big budget swords and sandals flick, “Gods Of Egypt.” And today, the first trailer has landed to remind everyone that this movie is indeed coming, offering a first taste of the epic adventure.
Chadwick Boseman, Brenton Thwaites, Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Geoffrey Rush, Rufus Sewell, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton, and Elodie Yung are part of the ensemble for the movie inspired by classic myths, in which a grand romance and the fate of the world hang in the balance, as they usually do. Here’s the official synopsis:
In this spectacular action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt, the survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek (Brenton Thwaites) undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to prevail in the epic final confrontation.
“Gods Of Egypt” opens on February 26, 2016. Watch below.
