Tomorrow, America’s annual tradition that combines high calorie food, hokey entertainment, expensive advertising, hours of pre-game programming, and somewhere in there, a football game, will get underway with the Super Bowl. And that means Hollywood will be in full force promoting everything they can, even if it’s stuff like “Gods Of Egypt.”
Lionsgate has unveiled their game day ad for the CGI dazzler, which brings together Gerard Butler, Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Courtney Eaton, Elodie Yung and Chadwick Boseman for the mythological tale. Here’s the synopsis:
In this spectacular action-adventure, 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.
