Lionsgate released the first official trailer for Alex Proyas’ Gods of Egypt.
Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids of the Nile River Valley in this action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. With the survival of mankind hanging in the balance, an unexpected hero takes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. With only a handful of heroic rebels opposing Set’s savage rule, Bek (Brenton Thwaites), a bold and defiant mortal, enlists the aid of powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against the evil overlord. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen take 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 spectacular final confrontation.
The film stars Gerard Butler, Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Courtney Eaton, Abbey Lee, Geoffrey Rush, Rufus Sewell, Elodie Yung, and Chadwick Boseman.
Gods of Egypt will land in theaters February 26, 2016.
