UPDATE: The logo originally posted was (thankfully) not original, but we've included some cool set pics from the flick to make up for it. You can see Gerard Butler and Elodie Yung in their "godly" gear for the flick below!
Summit Entertainment has released an official synopsis for their upcoming GODS OF EGYPT, as well as the first promotional artwork for Alex Proyas' (DARK CITY, KNOWING) new movie. The fantasy adventure stars Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Brenton Thwaites, Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung and Geoffrey Rush, and Proyas wrote the script for GODS OF EGYPT with DRACULA UNTOLD scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
Check out the synopsis:
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 cast for GODS OF EGYPT is solid, however I haven't liked Alex Proyas' most recent films as much as his older ones, and I get the feeling his new movie is just going to be CLASH/WRATH OF THE TITANS set in Egypt. Although I'm not too excited for GODS OF EGYPT right now, that could always change with the release of a sweet trailer. How excited are you for Alex Proyas' GODS OF EGYPT?
GODS OF EGYPT is scheduled to hit theaters on February 12, 2016.
