Like an unholy-looking hybrid of “300,” “Immortals,” and “Clash Of The Titans,” “Gods Of Egypt” is bringing a CGI-drenched, shout-y, and loud spectacle to the big screen later this month. And a new international, alt-rock-scored trailer has arrived to pound you into submission to buy a ticket.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Brenton Thwaites, Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung, Courtney Eaton, Gerard Butler and Geoffrey Rush star in director Alex Proyas‘ movie, in which the struggle for Egypt’s throne causes destruction and mayhem. Here’s the 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 26th. Watch below.
