Ben Kingsley takes on historical drama in the Tut mini-series trailer

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

I know you're all itching to watch Ben Kingsley do his thing, and while his NOT-MANDARIN Marvel spin-off film has yet to be announced, maybe this will tie someone over. Spike TV has produced a mini-series on the King who's name people have to double check the spelling for, King Tutankhamun. This limited run seeks to explore the drama of power, political back-stabbing, war and murder as it chronicles King Tut's rise to glory, his efforts to rule a chaotic empire and the enigma surrounding his death. You can check out a preview below.

With shows like Game of Thrones, Vikings and Black Sails pulling off period-esque pieces with some serious flair, it's hard to take what's going on here seriously. The very look of it is vanilla, so perhaps they have a strong script? Hey, I'm giving the benefit of the doubt here! Kingsley can play this role in his sleep, so until we get him back in the Marvel universe…

Tut will premiere on Spike TV on July 19, 2015.
