First Trailer: Alex Proyas’ “Gods of Egypt”

Unexpectedly more computer animated than live-action, the first trailer for Alex Proyas’ “Gods of Egypt” takes a wild spin on Ancient Egyptian lore, showing off a film that is trying to evoke “The Mummy,” “300” and “Clash of the Titans” all at once.

Brenton Thwaites, armed with a terrible weave, plays the human hero in a story of squabbling ancient gods. Gerard Butler is the villain Set and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is Thwaites’ godly ally Horus in this tale which boasts an impressive cast that also includes Geoffrey Rush, Chadwick Boseman, Rufus Sewell, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton, and Elodie Yung. “Gods Of Egypt” opens on February 26th 2016.
