First Epic Trailer for Alex Proyas' Fantastical 'Gods of Egypt' Movie
All of creation is at stake. All of heaven is at war. Whoa! Summit has debuted the first epic trailer for Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt, an action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. The ensemble cast of Gods includes Gerard Butler as Set, God of the Desert; Brenton Thwaites as Bek, Thief of Legend; Chadwick Boseman as Thoth, God of Wisdom; Elodie Yung as Hathor, Goddess of Love; and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, God of the Sky. This looks crazy, and I'm not sure I mean that in a good way. It sort of reminds me of some kind of weird mash-up between Jupiter Ascending and Exodus: Gods & Kings. There are so many epic shots, so many fantastical elements. I will say - they got me with those giant snakes.
Here's the first official trailer for Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt, in high def from Apple:
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 is directed by Alex Proyas (of The Crow, Dark City, I Robot, Knowing) from a screenplay by Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless. Gods of Egypt arrives on February 26th.
