Gods of Egypt Trailer
The gods clash in the ancient world in the trailer for epic fantasy adventure Gods of Egypt. View trailer below.
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.
While I do like Egyptian mythology (thanks to Rick Rioridan’s book trilogy), Gods of Egypt looks much like an “okay” movie. From the trailers, it looks like the film will be very cinematic with a lot of heavy visuals, a couple of good actors (Butler, Coster-Waldau, Rush, etc), and a healthy dose of mythology. However, it looks like 2010’s Clash of the Titans and probably as the same faults as it as well.
Gods of Egypt arrives in theaters next year on February 26th, 2016
