Twice upon a time, in the land of unnecessary live action Disney remakes…
Lionsgate has just released a new trailer to the upcoming film, Gods of Egypt, a story following a human who must save mankind by pitting the gods against each other. Directed by Alex Proyas (The Crow and Dark City) and written by Matt Sazama (The Last Witch Hunter) and Burk Sharpless (who also teamed up with Sazama to make The Last Witch Hunter), the film is set to come out on February 26, 2016.
The film will star a number of well known actors like Gerard Butler as Set, the God of Darkness who is reigning over Egypt and throwing all natural order into chaos, or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) as Horus, a god who is by all means happy to be up for a challenge against Set. Also within the film is Brenton Thwities (The Giver) as the main character of Bek, the human who is put to the test to save the world, as well as Geoffrey Rush as Ra, Rufus Sewell as Urshu, Elodie Yung as Hather, Abbey Lee as Anat, Courtney Eaton, Chadwick Boseman, and more.
Bek and the gods must prove their strengths through a number of battles and overcoming obstacles that stand in their way, all in order to get their way and save—or destroy – the world. You can watch the trailer for the film below.
