CG monsters and mayhem overrun Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt trailer

11.17.2015

gods-of-egypt

Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has taken over the throne of Egypt and plunged the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. Few dare to rebel against him. A young thief, whose love was taken captive by the god, seeks to dethrone and defeat Set with the aid of the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and a shit load of ridiculous CGI. Witness the trailer for GODS OF EGYPT!

Alex Proyas will always be known for bringing an amazing vision to both THE CROW and DARK CITY. His filmography has been shaky, at best, since then. Unfortunately for fans of his early work, GODS OF EGYPT is more representative of his latter material. Some of the actors here seem like they would be fun to watch, but are easily eclipsed by the Gods-awful acting of Brenton Thwaites. I'm not going to pretend he's the only problem with this trailer, though. On the other hand, I have the marketing team to thank for saving me some money come next February. For those of you craving more Egyptian marketing action, check out two new posters below that somone was actually paid for.

GODS OF EGYPT his theaters on February 26, 2016.

I thought this looked terrible when I first watched it on here, but then I saw it yesterday in the theater and the CGI looked much better.

I'll never understand it, if it's going to depend on that many cgi effects, then why don't they just make it an animation movie like Beowulf.

did they even use a single set in this? everything looks green screened. it's impossible that this will ever turn out good for anyone involved, this will be the 2016 version of something like seventh son. a colossal/epic waste of everyones time.

This Generation is too spoil

Go watch the Last Starfighter and then talk about CGI --- I see this movie as a popcorn ride -- will it be entertaining or not .... nothing more, nothing less --- You guys LOVE talking about CGI, always in a negative way -- I say, you don't like then take a course or two and become a CGI expert!

I expected a CGI fest from the comments, but, phew, wow. That's XBox material.
Big plans that didn't get the budget they needed.

It may be fun, of course, but wow.

Wow that was like if the SyFi channel was given a 100 million dollar budget, and spent 90 million on coke and whores.

It has some interesting concept, but I'd say some of these actors were miscast and my brain just couldn't register a Scotsman talking in a Scottish accent playing an Egyptian god. Heck, why can't at least the thief guy be a black kid or someone who looks a bit more Middle Eastern?

So it's like an Egyptian Clash of the Titans? And it will probably be just as boring. However, points for having Jamie Lannister as part of the cast.

Anyway, while it looks cartooney, I like these campy adventure movies. Too many serious movies nowadays.

Alex Proyas' career is shaky since Dark City? I liked both 'I, Robot' and 'Knowing' as well. I always tought they are underrated movies.

Not sure what either of those have to do with each other, but while Exodus was pretty bogus, Avatar was a worldwide smash and even went up for an academy for best film.

I can only say after seeing this trailer

How glad I am that they didn't let this guy do his adaptation of John Milton's "Paradise Lost". Man, would I have suffered beyond measure.

That awful actor who I cant even name (because so far I have been lucky not to see him in anything) Does that awful hop skip jump thing that Brad Pitt did in Troy. Is this what action sequences have come down to.

Well that was disappointing. I was looking forward to seeing Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in a lead role. I was also hoping that this wouldn't look so Clash of the Titans light. damn, I guess we're never going to see the Alex Proyas of Dark City and Crow days.

Actually he does look pretty much the part for Snake, which I've noticed since he wore a light armored costume in Oblivion.

Alex should direct video games and television shows ...7 years ago.

This looks like direct to video, no studio exec could possibly justify releasing this mess to theaters.

Well, it's February. There won't be that many good movies in the theatres, so it won't be stealing screens fro better films.

Hate to say it but that looked generic as fuck. We'll see but all the warning signs are there that it won't be crow or dark city quality or even I Robot.
